Memories Timeline


  1. Carl and Francien Rhea send our deepest sympathy in the passing of your Mother, Elisa. She was my Belgium friend and I have known her since 1997 when we both lived in Silver Creek. I helped take care of your mother til I was not able to do it any longer because of my age, but we still stayed in touch. I will miss her, she was my little firecracker. We laughed, we cried, we fell out, we made up because we loved each other. We were two strangers in the US but we could reminisce about Limburg and Maaseik.
