Dear Elly, somebody told me that your husband Joop has passed away on the 29 Jan 2019, I looked it up on the internet. Our condolences and pitty that over the years we didn’t have contact anymore, but that certainly wasn’t my fault. I have never understood the reason, however in a way I always regarded you as family, but not from your side, sorry. Ko.February 2, 2019
Poppy/Opa we love you so much.February 3, 2019
You taught me from an early age that family isn’t always blood. I will always remember your big bear hugs and your bristley kisses.
Not sure if I’ll get to see you off yet but know you and Nanna will be in our hearts on the day.
Lots of Love
Melinda, Ebony, Mikayla, Rylan, Aidyn, Xayth and Emmytt

I’ve never met a man so beautiful, Devoted & Humble.
Last time I saw you, you had been gardening in your clogs. * I loved that* you inspired Nikiiah to grow “cacti”.
Your smile melts my heart, my favourite memory was the one time you and nan snuck up on me at the track canteen . Cheeky! We’re all so very lucky to have had you as our Poppy 💖
Hope, Faith, Fiona Nikiiah & Alexz. Xxxx🙏
Forever in our hearts, you will truely be missed. XxFebruary 7, 2019
