Recente condoleances

Dear Tiny, Jean-Philippe, Robert Jan and Caroline and families:

Dorothy and I were saddened to hear today of your Jan's passing.   We're sure it is very difficult and hope that you gain some comfort in knowing that we are praying for and thinking of you all.

I recall very fondly the large amount of wisdom and patience that Jan had displayed to me in teaching (the much younger) me as much as he could about the cocoa business (and commerce in general). I learned a great deal from him.  

Dorothy and I recall very warmly getting together with you, Tiny, and Jan on your visits to Canada. And of course the tremendous kindness that the entire family showed me upon my solo visit for business to the Netherlands.  (Tiny, while I have never learned to drink that yogurt drink "Yoki" -- which I called "Yukky" -- you may be happy to hear that I have learned to eat much more seafood over the years -- a move that largely started when you and Jan served me a lovely meal in your home in Purmerend.)

In any event I'm sure that Jan (man, vader en opa) will be missed terribly by you all as he will be by us as well. 

We wish you all the best as you remember happier times.

With all of our love,
Blair and Dorothy Hadfield
