Oma [May. 2nd, 2015|09:32 pm]
Typos! Typos! Typso!
My Oma Antoinette Vandeveerdonk died two days ago. I took it fairly well. She has been dying for 26 days. She wasn't moving or speaking. Just breathing heavily and reaching for the sky. She lived with my Aunt Leonique in Mazatlan Mexico and had Aunty and some hospice nurses with her at all times.

I'm sure someone will write a great eulogy about her but I'm going to tell some personal tidbit anecdotes.

When I was a tator tot I showed her how to make a poached egg in a coffee cup utilizing the microwave. She told me years later that she made that for her morning meal most days.

My sister and I would play with these bronze planes she had at her apartment in Dallas. We probably shouldn't have been playing with them. They were worth alot of money.

When I got glasses she told me I "looked like a little professor". I always thought that was funny.

She moved back to the Netherlands in the early 90's and would visit the states from time to time. She liked to sleep on very firm mattress's and we had to keep this brick of a mattress at our house for whenever she visited. Apparently, that wasn't good enough for Oma. My dad took a door off the hinges and put it under the mattress to make it even firmer.

On one of her visits my dad asked her to tuck him in like in the old days. She put the covers on him and threw a cup of ice underneath the blankets and took off laughing.

She taught me and my sister some weirdo dutch songs she made up when she was younger. One was about a soup they used to eat. The lyrics went
"Soup Soup Soup
Balla Balla Balla,
Killi Killi Killi,
Soup Balla Killi, HOI
!"

And another one her and her sister made up about a made up word called "Bluch". The lyrics are in Dutch and too hard to explain.

When I was living on my own I would write her letters. I once wrote her that I wanted to learn sign language and Dutch. She wrote back saying that sign language was a good idea but there was no point in learning Dutch because it was a dying language.

She used to give tours in Mazatlan Mexico and seemed to hate the snotty tourists. I remember her doing an impression of one by saying "Wheres the Guaca-mole!?".

The last time I physically saw her the dementia had set in. Before my Uncle Tony brought me into the room he warned me that she hasn't recognized anybody and probably wouldn't remember me. I walked into her room where she smiled real big and said "Hi Rick!".

The last time I talked to her on the phone she didn't really know who I was. She started talking to me in Dutch and I didn't know what she was saying. My Aunt Leonique told her that I don't speak Dutch. In English she asked "Why do you not speak in your native tongue?" And I had to tell her that she told me it was a dying language.


Oma and Opa in the early 60's.


This was on one of her visits maybe 10 years ago.


Leonique took this picture after I had sent Oma some mail last year.
