    So sorry to read uncle Gerrit has passed away. Our condolences.

    I am your cousin Annemiek from Holland. My mother was uncle Gerrit’s youngest sister Adri. I met Margaret and Ingrid when they visited Holland a long time ago.

    I’m sorry inform you that my mother passed away december 23 2019. I guess that means all your fathers brothers and sisters are now diseased.
