Merry Xmas and Happy New Year 2009
Dear family & friends,
I want to take this opportunity to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your wonderful support during this year in achieving what we all love most "the unity and love of a family".
As descendants of the Van Romondt Family of the West Indian Branch we have come together to unite four times this year. First in Curacao, then in Sint Maarten, followed by Aruba and U.S.A. The reunions were a life time memory and everyone enjoyed being among family and friends!
I know that God and our ancestors are very proud of all of us for making this research a huge success and we can continue the work as the new year fills us up with more prosperity and blessings of abundance!
This year we have seen our family tree grow with new little leaves here on this beautiful earth and leaves that grew above us to heaven to be with GOD. We know that the family members that left us are in a wonderful place among all our ancestors looking down at us and knowing that what we have done is special in so many ways!
I want to thank each and every contact worldwide who are out there supporting this project all the way. You know that your support means so much to us and we hope that you keep on joining us in our journey.
A special thanks goes out to the Aruba, Sint Maarten, Curacao and U.S.A. committee, sponsors, donators and the SXM and Aruba press for the wonderful job they did to make the reunions a wonderful experience.
A divine thank you to each and every descendant for your support, believe but most of all your love for making our dream come true!
May this season fill your heart with love and the new year bless you with the light of hope & faith and rains of gifts of gratefulness.
Bon Pasco & Bon ana 2009!
With Love always,
Malaki Zuleika Croes
