  1. Dick and Henny Rosendal says:

    To Janny and families; am so sorry to hear about John. He was a wonderful cousin and will remember him for his music. Loved to hear him play when we went for holidays to the farm. I enjoyed the songs so much. He will be greatly missed and hope the Lord will continue to give you much strength in the coming days. Just know that he was loved by many friends and cousins. Will miss you John. Take care Janny.
