    Dear Crombeen-Gerrits family, We would like to extend our heartfelt condolences on the passing of mom.
    A mother always dies too early, no matter how old she is
    You pray that God will spare her, because you love her

    But when the days get tight, she gets sick, tired and short of breath
    Do you pray that God will get her, because you love her.

    Will, Hanny and Jan Albers, Netherlands
