    Tante Catherine was een fantastische vrouw, zij kon goed luisteren en ik heb haar nooit kritiek over iemand uit horen spreken. De laatste jaren waren zwaar, zeker na het overlijden van oom Hans. Van haar kinderen heeft ze erg veel steun en hulp gekregen.
    Zelf heb ik haar alleen in goede doen meegemaakt en daar ben ik blij om.
    Ik zou haar nog wel duizend keer willen bedanken voor wat zij en oom Hans voor mij gedaan hebben.
