We got to know Willy and Hub when we were attending the senior center and the dinner date meals, such a sweet couple. We surely enjoyed our visits with them and the time we could spend together. Were sending our sincere sympathy to all of you . Fred and Ann Vlastuin

Wilhelmina and Hub were two special people. They were low keyed, friendly and always a joy to talk with. It was a joy working with Wilhelmina. My sympathy to all of you.
