i havent written for a while,somehow we are well into May now. Bert is now working in Newfoundland, in St.John’s, has been for several weeks. He works 14 days straight, then comes home for 7. Two of those are travelling days, so 5 days for him to enjoy being on the boat.
Its not easy, when he was in Vancouver, he was close enough to come home if needed, close enough too for me to come and visit,but now…. this is different!!!
He is there together with his brother,both working on the same project,and they are renting a very nice apartment, with everything in it that they might need.
It is still snowing there, off and on, but the temperature is slowly coming up.
I can’t wait to go there for a visit,together with my camera , i should have an incredible time.
It is the only province i haven’t seen yet…..
On April 26th we received a very sad call from Holland, Bert’s father ,PA,Opa,had passed away.
He was 93 years old.
He will very much so be missed, he was a loving, kind man,whom i gladly adopted as a father.
So, we flew to Holland, my sister in law Ineke and myself ,flew from Vancouver, Bert and Roel flew from St.John’s.
It was a week full of sadness, but the service for Dad was very beautiful, peaceful and full of love.
He won’t ever be forgotten, he left a lot of love and compassion behind, he was a great man.
