Raymond van Gils - September 18, 2021

When I think of my aunt Wies, vague warm memories of about fifty years ago come up. You came to the Netherlands to visit the families. On an afternoon you also visited my family. My brother Armand – who unfortunately past away 5 years ago – received from aunt Wies - who was his godmother - a “Kooky Canooky” pyama. I remember her as a sweet and friendly aunt. Wish you a lot of strength to cope with your loss. Warm greetings.
