Hi Grandpa,we love you & we all miss you so much. It's been 2 years today since we lost you, even though, You will live in our hearts & thoughts,for the rest of our lives" Everything is so different now with You, Mom, Grandma & Dale. We just all & love you all so much. Grandpa, please watch over us & give each of us the strength, love, forgiveness in our hearts & courage to get through these hard, heart breaking times without you all. The kids are getting so big, so fast. Isn't it funny how some kids spend all of their lives trying to get away from their parents, & another part of life, trying to learn, rebuild & become closer. I don't care how old a child may get, her or she will still always want their Mom or Dad. Please watch over everyone, near & far, give us strength to carry on when some days seem impossible. Please watch over us, & keep us safe from harming our selves & others. Thank You. Grandpa, this time of year is so hard for everyone. I lost my own personal Santa Clause, plus so much more. Every time I see "Santa" it's always reminded me of you, all of my life, & it always will. I know that it's been 2 years today since you've been gone, but in my heart is where you will always stay, now & always. My Crazy Dutchman Grandpa, with a loud voice, a booming laughter & smile that lit up many hearts. We will always love you & we will always miss you very deeply. Please tell Mom & Grandma that I miss them so very much right now. Honestly, it's not getting any easier yet, but I know, deep in my heart that the 3 of you are basking in happiness.

George and I visited you today. Left a little something special for our favorite Santa Claus. We know how much you love to visit people as the most jolly elf. Life has gone as usual. There is snow on the ground and everybody has their lights up for the holiday. Tomorrow it will be a year since you took your leave to be at home with lord. Each day I take pause to look at your picture. George and I talk, have our tears, and its back to business as usual. We both miss you and it seems like a year just breezed by. We love and miss you! Where ever you are and what ever your doing. Merry Christmas!! Love George and I. :)

R I P Uncle Tony ! You lived loud and large and laughed a lot with your family and Ted. U were a joker and a clown and loved to make people laugh! You were the fastest talker in both English and Dutch I ever knew. You loved to fish with Ted and you both broke the top off your fishing poles trying to used the most weight and casting the farthest. In your wild days you were a real trip! I still see you with cigaretts in your nose and ears dancing around shouting walla walla bishop! You loved to shoot pistols with Ted. You and Ted could swear like versus of poetry in Dutch! We couldn't understand it but it rolled off your tounge's in an amazing way. You both had almost matching late fifties Mercury cars. You could be rough and tough and demanding at times. There was never a dull moment or a quiet one though when you were around! I know your life was fun as well as hard and you went through your bad times like we all do. I am glad you mellowed and got religion again later in life. You were lucky to have two good women in your life and great kids. Rest in Peace old Buddy as Ted use to call you. You will be missed! Look out heaven it is going to get a lot more exciting and boistrous with you there! I will miss you too old Friend! Curtis Tolsma

May the Good Lord give the comfort you need to get through the days ahead. May the memories you have give peace of mind. He was a very special guy who will be missed.

 

Sherry Evenhuis posted on 12/13/11

Memories? So many. What I will say is he is a very creative person. He liked to draw things (doodles). He also told me just a few years ago that he also liked to dance. I was like really? These are just a few things about Tony that are just a part of a man that we love. The Eagleby Emily M. ParrisThe eagle is a magnificent birdWho soars with graceful easeHe's a symbol of our heritageAs he glides upon the breezeHe's a symbol of our freedomIn his soaring boundless flightA beacon for humanityAnd a splendid, noble sightHis huge wingspan maneuvers himIn boundless soaring flightOh eagle, in your majestyMay we follow you tonightMay we soar like eagles on the wingsOf dreams composed of lightOh, eagle, in your splendorMay we follow you tonight
