Prayers lifted up for your lovely family. We have many cherished memories of Hans, Denyse, and all the children as we played bridge with Hans and Denyse, and Denyse taught my girls to play the piano. Louise even babysat Courtney. Woodhaven was a loving home to care for Tim also as he declined with Alzheimer's. Hans was such a caring, quiet, unassuming man. Hold those treasured memories close to your hearts.
