Dear Grandad, I will miss going to the footy with you and i will miss you taking Louis and I to Maccas. Thank you for coming to my footy games whenever you could. Some people might think you were the best at playing golf or getting angry at the footy `but i think you were the best at making milkshakes. Thanks for all the milkshakes you made me. From your grandson, George

Dearest Rinus, Even though you were sick for a number of years you always faced life with such gusto, ticking many things off your bucket list. I remember you telling me about your time in Holland and New York with such fondness.. We really thought we would get to see you again but sadly that was not to be! Our love and thoughts are with all the family... Sleep Softly Brother. All Our Love, Maggie, Keith & Family xx
