I have known three of them. Philippina Petronella (1896) or Pien, second on the left. Here she is not even imagining how one day she will become my grandmother. To the right my aunt Mien (Isabella Zedonia), and next to her Johanna Lodewika. On the left must be aunt Margaretha Frederika who married Reinder (Ryan) Jansen, and emigrated to the United States. Four daughters of carpenter Auke van der Vliet. In every face you see life’s expectations and challenges.
