    Somewhere around May 1973 there was a letter in our local newspaper that some family’s were needed for hosting some Foreign Exchange Students from the United States. We were the lucky ones to have Patricia DeMeester from Ludington, MI in our family as a loving American sister and another daughter for my parents. From that time on there have been several trips from her Dutch family to the States where we always have been welcomed as family. Our last trip was last year April 2019. We had a wonderful time with tears and laughter, it felt so good again to hug you again but saying goodbye was so difficult.
    Just after Christmas I had you on the phone and you were tired, but so happy you could have been at home on Christmas day. Yesterday on Willem his birthday we were talking about you and I said I would call you this evening. But than the message came you passed away dearest Pat, such a wonderful lady with a big and loving heart. We as your whole Dutch family have been blessed having you in our family and you will be dearly missed. Now I will send my blowing kisses to heaven! Thank you for beeing my sister now and Always!

    We met Pat in the summer of 73 in the Netherlands while she was staying at my parents en sister Ria.
    She was a young and nice girl enjoying her stay here, but when she is playing soccer on wooden shoes she was dangerious !
    When she was back in de US she surprised us severel times with cards and little gifts from Ludington and other places.
    We keep her in memory as a wonderfull, warm person and our condolences are for Greg, David, Valerie, Brian, granddaughters, grandson and Mom.
