I just learned of the loss of your mother and I’m sorry that I wasn’t able to give my condolences in person.

My sincere sympathy to the entire family on the loss of your mother. Mrs. Korevaar was a great woman. She was always very kind to me and she and your dad helped my parents out a lot. I have many fond memories of spending time at your place. It was like a second home.

Condolence from arie teeuw on July 9th, 2019 2:01 AM

Linda and Family, our condolences with the loss of your mother and grandmother. My mother always referred to her as “Tante Leentje”. I remember her as a very joyfull and energetic woman and i can recall all te visits your family made to Schiedam. The memories born at that time are stored for ever in my mind and will be replayed more often by the time i get older. With Tante Leentje the last of her Korevaar generation is passed away. We wish you many strength in these sad days.
