Hi Tony, I hope you still check this message board.
My dad (your dad's youngest brother Berend) just called me, all exited, that he found your message. He did not quite know how to post a reply so I do the honours for him....
We have been scouring the internet for you and your brother too, but never really found anything until today. We are really glad to hear from you. Cannot just jet get my head around the fact that the boy I met so many years ago, now has 5 childer, maybe more in the meantime. We hope you are all doing well, and that we can exchange adressess etc. soon.
Back here in Holland my part of the family is doing great. My mom and dad are in good health. My older sister Claudia is married and has a son (who turned 16 on januari 7th this year). I am married but no kiddies.
I think I could write a whole book full of all kinds of family stuff, but I think my dad would love to talk to you too. So I'll end my reply here, and I really really hope you get this message.
Thank you for looking for us, and hope to talk exchange email etc. soon. Love to your family
Katinka and all the rest of the family.
