Dear Boekestijn Family,
Occasionally I would meet Bert and his friend Louis Regnerus at the Tim Horten's at Casablanca and if so would have a chat or coffee with them. My sincere condolences with the death of a dear family member. God grant you strength and courage in these days and in the time to come.
He was a fine man!

Dear Annie, David and Rose,

I think only Rose knows me a little. I'm the daughter of Ben, who we- Gerben, Bep and me - lost in december last year. I feel with you all, although I didnot know your father and husband. But I see out of the photo he is a real Boekestijn! I wish you all the strength the next coming of weeks, months, time. It needs time, anyhow.

Kind regards,
Jitske van Kaam
