Beste Familie De Jager

Een verdrietige dag vandaag voor jullie als naaste familie, afscheid te moeten nemen van jullie dierbare en geliefde moeder, beppe en oerbeppe.
Na een zeer lang, bijzonder en actief bestaan is ze heengegaan. Voor jullie een groot gemis, een deur is in het slot gevallen. Tegelijk een gevoel van dankbaarheid dat ze zo lang in jullie vermidden heeft mogen zijn.
Wij mogen geloven en vast vertrouwen dat zij  thuisgehaald is door haar Hemelse Vader. Dat geeft troost, ondanks het verdriet dat er is.
Wij wensen jullie allen veel sterkte toe bij het ten grave dragen van moeder!

Met hartelijke groet en ons medeleven,

Pieter en Baukje Jouwsma-Hoekstra
