      I had the honour of meeting your wonderful Mother while living at the Rockland Manor. She was a lively woman with a beautiful smile. She enjoyed life and shared stories with me . I feel I’m a better person for knowing her. Rest In Peace Theodora. I may not be able to attend the ceremony because of my cold but your Mother will be in my prayers and my heart.

      The loss of a mother is one of life’s deepest sorrows, but you should take comfort in knowing that all of you were present in her last days. Your mom knew that she was loved and I know she loved everyone one of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She is with her God and smiling with love and adoration upon all of you. We shall miss her too., out condolences to everyone.

      Lieve Tante Do. Soms is er zo veel wat we voelen maar zo weinig wat we kunnen zeggen. Je bent voor altijd in onze herinnering.
      Dear Tante Do. Sometimes there is so much we feel but so little we can say. You will be in our memory for ever.
