Recently my uncle Theo requested a song on the radio for grandma Tromp.
Although the song uncle Theo requested was not to exactly to my taste (bleh when it comes to most Dutch music) the song had great sentimental value anyway. Below is the recording of his message and the song he requested (Danny de Munk – “Een bloemetje voor jou”), all in Dutch of course.[audio:theo.request.mp3]
It was very sweet of him and a great way to say thanks for the great support she is for so many of us. Uncle Theo went on to say how through all the tough times in her life his mother has always been cheerful and optimistic. All of her 10 remainging children (of 12), 22 grandchildren and 8 greatgrandchildren wish her all the best.
