My father-in-law, who was known as Wim or Bill (depending which country he was in), was born in The Netherlands in 1934. He lived near Amsterdam throughout the war, and as a small child, had to face the loss of friends and fear for the survival of his family. He moved to Canada in the late 1950s, and raised his family here. He was a wonderful husband and father, a kind friend and a lovely person. He passed away just one year ago, and we will gladly plant these flowers in his memory.
