mind goes thoughts of soccer, caroling and picnics
My heart remembers a woman who gave advise on adoption that no one
But my stomach thinks of a big old steel Dutch pot of Nasi Goreng
Some people give you memories you never forget
Thank you Aunt Theresa
sledding behind the tow truck
Then going in the house for hot chocolate - she would have it
We still greet
our kids in the morning with a hearty
"Vell, Goot Morning"
Beautiful memories of a family centered and generous heart
Loved the best
Three people at the time
Yes, I didn't
think of that
Uncle Ted would drag us around and give us cuts, bruises and torn
Aunt Theresa would bribe with the hot chocolate to not tell our
parents what really happened
Coenen family in Holland
In Holland we also have many
good memories of aunt Theresa and uncle Ted.
Luckily we also have some pictures to remind us of the time they
lived in the Netherlands.
When we were little, we often were at Hees.
It was usually crowded with family and other people who also loved
spending time there.
We always stayed with Theresa and Ted when we visited South Bend and
they took great care of us.
We will all miss Theresa, tante Trees, very much.
