We are so saddened by the loss of “our brother” Andre.
Hi Mona — we’re so sorry for your loss. Andre was a special guy & we very much enjoyed getting to know both of you during our time in Apache Junction. I (Vera) appreciated that Andre recommended to me a chiropractor who was very helpful for me. He also gave me a wrist band that I’ve kept to use when my arthritis “acts up.” Andre was also someone who took pride in our condo complex & volunteered for any “job” that a resident could do. He was a very valuable asset to the community & valued for his service to the complex.
We treasure our memories of Andre.
Duane & Vera
Our sincere condolences on André’s passing.
We are so sorry that you already had to say goodbye to your dear André. Our family has such golden memories of your hospitality as we felt so welcome in your lovely lake house surrounded by many wonderful friends in the year 2000. These memories will be with us forever. In an email at the end of 2019, André wrote that you were also ill at the time and were undergoing treatment. Words are not enough to say how sorry we are for you that this all happened.
Dear dear Mona, we wish you all the strength and love with this great loss for now and in the future.
Klaas, Adrie, Tosca and Jasper ❤️.

Our heartfelt condolences Mona.
Winston and I send our condolences to you, Mona and are so sorry to hear of Andre’s passing. Andre was such a great help to us over the years, as he shared his vast knowledge on anything to do with house construction and renovation. He was always there to help – with all our moves, the purchase of our homes, help in fixing up Darrell’s home, and helping Mona and I take care of the 4 plex we inherited from our mother. For all that, we are grateful to have these memories of a truly generous man. May he rest in peace. And may you take comfort in your memories. Love, Judy and Winston
