1948 – 2015
With deep sorrow we announce that the Lord in His infinite wisdom, at His time has taken out of our midst my beloved husband, our dear father and grandfather. Mr. Cornelis Heyboer of Picture Butte passed away on Wednesday, March 11, 2015 at the age of 67 years, after an intense struggle with metastatic melamona cancer which he endured without murmuring.
Zo Gij in \’t recht wilt treden,
O HEER, en gadeslaan
Ach, wie zal dan bestaan?
Maar neen, daar is vergeving
Altijd bij U geweest;
Dies wordt Gij, HEER, met beving,
Recht kinderlijk gevreesd.
Psalm 130:2 (berijmd)
