Not sure what to say?

Wisdom embodied, we are all blessed by his gift of life. Jeremiah 31, vs 9 "With weeping they shall come, and with consolations I will lead them back. I will let them walk by brooks of water, in a straight path in which they shall not stumble; for I have become a father to Israel."
May you be comforted in great love, in your loss of your Dad, Grandad and Great Grandad.

And each one will be like a hiding place from the wind, A place of concealment from the rainstorm, Like streams of water in a waterless land, of Like the shadow of a massive crag in a parched land. Isaiah 32:2..

This is what genuine friends means to those in need. His kind deeds did not go unnoticed. And many truly appreciated the love and the compassion he showed... please accept my sincere condolences for your loss. And may the God of all comfort now grant you the strength you...

Well done you were an a great man what you did may God bless you

Well done Mr. Van Hulst!! Your heroism brings tears to my eyes. I wish I had known you. Thank you for the risks you took to save others. I know there is a special place in Heaven for such as you!

My thoughts and prayers are with the family during this difficult time. I hope the promise at 1 Thess 4:14 can bring comfort.

May the God of comfort give family and friends the strength needed as they remember the spirit of giving (Acts 20:35) Johan van Hulst displayed in his life
In just a little while the great equalizer will make thinks better
In just a little while his promises will come true
