Sending our most sincere condolences to the entire De Jong family at this very sad time for all of you. It has been a great many years since I have seen John, but I still remember him as a kind, friendly little boy. Your family has experienced some very sad moments over the past few years....please know that we are thinking of all of you at this time. Sincerely, John and Cheryl
Dear Bill, Linda and Family. We are very sorry to hear of John's passing. I have memories of him in his younger days when he attended Bismark United Church. He was such a very pleasant and friendly boy. May the wonderful memories of John help you through this very sad and difficult time. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.
With Deepest Sympathy,
Brad & Darlene Cavers
I have so many great memories of John I don’t know where to start. It was a pleasure having him as a cousin. I remember the trips to kinsmen park and Chippewa park to go swimming, we would ride in the back of the station wagon making faces and waving at people following us lol The Easter egg hunts at Kinsmen park, playing tackle football at George and Effies’s, bike rides, tad pole hunting, ice skating on the pond at grandpa and grandma’s, playing in the haymow, helping bring in hay and straw from the fields, fishing in the pond, Sunday school and church, eating all grandmas certs during church lol Sunday dinners and watching the magical world of Disney and Fraggle Rock! But what stands out the most is the size of his heart ❤️ I remember a few times when I stayed at your place when my mom had my brother, my sister and a surgery or two and I went to Gainsborough school with John which Was very scary for me but he made me feel comfortable and made sure that everyone treated me good and that all his friends welcomed me like we had been friends for years :) he also made sure they brought me Valentines so I didn’t feel left out ❤️ So many heart warming memories ❤️ May you Rest In Peace John
My sincere condolences and the biggest hugs to all of you in this very difficult time
