To the family of Johanna
We were saddened to hear of Johanna’s passing. During the short time that she and our mother shared a hospital room in the spring of this year we became very fond of Johanna and my mother appreciated her friendship and company. They shared the same great Dutch accent, shared food and enjoyed looking out their window to see what was going on outside.
We are so sorry for your loss and our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Ray and Alma Heeringa and family
