One Condolence for “VAN BIERT, Margaretha”

  1. Neeltje van Biert-Mellaard says:

    To all of you – friends, neighbours and caring personel of Margo van Biert – I send you my condolences.
    As sister in law I regret deeply that Margo has passed away. Before Margo left to Canada she lived not far away from us. She visited us frequently and had a special place in our family.

    To those of you who have cared for Margo during the last years, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I think that Margo deserved your love en caring.
