Dearest Martin, and all the Kraan Family,

It was with a very heavy heart that we read of Henny's passing.

Henny was a great inspiration to so many of us.... she willed herself to attend Sunday Mass, despite her infirmity, as she neared the end of her remarkable life.

Henny always wore her "Trademark Smile" no matter the circumstance, and was a bright light to all those whose path she crossed.

And to you, Dear St. Martin, you should be very proud of having been such a wonderful husband to Henny for each, and every, of the Sixty-Two years together.

Take Care, and May God Bless, John & Ginette Ritchie
