Can anyone here speak Dutch ?

I've just received a pre printed card from Holland about a relative of mine who recently died but the message is in Dutch and I'm not sure what it says.  Don't suppose anyone could translate it for me.

    Thanks for the link Danowat - I kind of got the jist of the message but it didn't make total sense !!!!

  • They tend not to when you do a direct translation, but at least its a start, and hopefully someone can translate it properly image

  • No, but I can speak like Steve McClaren, if that helps.

    Ya forshure.

  • Where is H - she lives there now or who is the Dutch Lady ? Err

    Thankyou so much for doing that.  I've put the words with the card now so that I can keep them and I'm sure the rest of my family in england will like to know the meaning as well.  None of us speak any Dutch.

    thanks once again
