  1. Our condolences to everyone in the family. We have so many good memories. From 1977 – 1982 when Arie and I were involved with the Livingroom Book Nook, your Dad would often pop in to check how we were doing. He was a real encourager. When we left that ministry the rent we were paying was more than we could manage, and he offered to rent us the main floor of the house where Ron lived upstairs. And in our early years he encouraged us to attend retreats at the Living Faith Renewal Centre that made a big contribution to our faith journey. It’s wonderful to think of him reunited with your mother, and to look forward to meeting him again in eternity. Thinking of you all.

  2. Dear Ron, Thelma and all of your families,

    Please accept my condolences on the loss of your Dad. I was sorry to have heard this from someone ‘Syd’ who spoke very highly of him! Syd said that they had served together on Council at Maranatha Christian Reformed Church some years ago. It’s funny how when we get chatting with folks (this was at the Beverly Farmers Market) and you can sometimes find a connection!

    I remember ‘Mr. VanZyderveld’ as I used to call him as being cheery and on the go! He was always friendly to me I spent lots of time with you in the Highlands neighbourhood — being childhood friends. I often think of those days! And I wonder how you are all doing!

    Perhaps we will have the chance to see one another again soon!!

    Again, thinking of you lots at this time.

    Lots of love Liz Tyler (Tidridge).
