Lieve familie, vandaag en de komende tijd zullen jullie speciaal in onze gedachten zijn, nu er afscheid wordt genomen van oom Rieks. Wij herinneren hem als een oom, die zijn eigen gang ging. En als een oom die in zijn leven heeft gedaan wat hij graag wilde. Hij heeft, voor zover wij dat kunnen inschatten, veel uit zijn leven gehaald. We zijn blij dat wij zijn gasten mochten zijn in 1982. Voor oom Rieks een hele invasie! Een gezin met 2 jonge kinderen 2 weken op bezoek hebben geeft veel gedoe. Gelukkig hielp Judy. (And Nikky) We zijn heel bij voor oom Rieks dat hij later Tante Marnie heeft ontmoet. Voor nu wensen we jullie troost toe; in jullie gebeden en bij elkaar. We wensen jullie toe dat de goeie herinneringen het zullen winnen van het verdriet om het gemis. Liefs, ook namens mam , Klaas en Hennie

— Hennie en Klaas Middelburg, October 12, 2013

Wij wensen jullie heel veel kracht en troost toe nu jullie Vader,Schoonvader,en Opa is heengegaan.Hij is nu veilig in Jezus armen. Bij Hem is het goed. Heel veel sterkte Familie van ons. H.Gr. Fam.T.Dijkstra-Waninge.
