Renee & Family, I have known you and Ben for the past 15 years. You and Ben always stood out. You with your beauty and grace and I always enjoyed your brilliant piano playing for Capitalcare Group. Sometimes early on Ben and yourself would come to Kipnes together. He was always very handsome and distinguished looking with very funky glasses. He was an extremely intelligent man and always full of positivity and wisdom near the end. Ben God has gained a new Angel and I will forever be greatful for your wisdom and strength. Now it is time to RIP!!!❤️

Lieve Renee, neven en nichten,

Wij wensen jullie veel sterkte toe met het verlies van Benny, man, vader, opa en oom. Wij herinneren hem als een gezellige, opgewekte, goedlachse man, met een groot gevoel voor humor. Dit moet voor jullie een groot gemis zijn.
Wij zijn in gedachten bij jullie.

Jullie nichtjes uit Nederland,
Angelique en NIna

Lieve familie,

Ik ben intens verdrietig dat mijn broertje is overleden. Ik denk nog vaak aan de tijd dat we samen veel wandelden en ik voel nog jouw kleine hand in de mijne. Jouw favoriete wandeling was naar de kipjes in Oosterbeek. Zelfs in september 1944 liepen wij onder granaatvuur de Engelsen tegemoet. Ik heb altijd veel zorgen over je gehad zelf toen je zo ver weg ging. Je was altijd in mijn hart en zal daar altijd blijven. Rust zacht lief broertje. Ik hou van je. Tot ooit!

Je zus Betty

Metamorphosis

You now sit on a nice cozy bench
Beside the lilac bush that is so fair.
Breathing the fresh air and loving its’ scent
The warm sun shines on to your thick grey hair.

Smokey, Angie, Boomer and rest of your fur babies will all greet you at the garden.
Playing toss and fetch;
Chasing after them like it was nothing;
Walking steadily, no more shuffling.

You told us, “I am ready.”
“I know its’ beautiful out there.”
Just like the breaking of the cocoon
Your heavenly body finally came to rest.

Your soul is now free, Dad.
You deserved these beautiful wings.
Fly were it pleases you.
Fly high our dear butterfly. ❤️

You will be missed.
Vaarwel en we zullenje weer zien.
