  1. I remember Chris Van Reenen with very fond memories. One of the most outstanding things I remember about her is the wonderful artistic abilities she possessed. She was able to take any painting and duplicate it to almost perfection. She was also an extraordinarily kind and soft and gentle spoken person. I am fortunate to have an El Greco painting she did for me of Christ on the Cross. She was always pleasant and warm whenever I came over to visit with Henny and I got to know much of the extended family when Henny and I traveled to Europe together after we graduated High School. We stayed in Amsterdam as our home base and traveled from there. She and Jan taught me a lot about what it was like living there in Amsterdam during the second World War. It gave me a greater appreciation of what I had each and every day. I am saddened at her loss but I also know she was suffering towards the end of her life and is no longer in that struggle. I am sending Hugs and Love to All of You and to let you know I will never forget her as she made an impact in my life.
