Wow. This was just so touching to read, Ro. Thanks for that.



Thanks, Ro. This is beautiful. See you soon.


Rogier, dank je wel voor het nemen van de tijd om dit mooie verhaal over Deela te schrijven. A blessing to read!


Ro, thanks so much - Deela would be well honored - I am! I still hold out hope that you may come over to the conservative side. :-)

I just sat and wept through this story. Thank you so much for these words and this perspective. You give expression to much that I feel but can't say. I am so glad you guys could be there this weekend for Al and kids. It is very hard to be so far away right now, but I look forward to seeing you and others in Voorburg this week. Peace to you - Ann


Jullie, als bevriend gezin, ook heel veel sterkte gewenst.

Thanks so much for your tribute. It showed Deela's true beauty. Glad to have known her....she was amazing a few years ago when we stayed with them on our sabbatical. Mimi was sick...throwing up and she took our kids to the park, made pizza with them, and played surrogate "mommy" while we were there. Grace & peace to all!.

Thanks Rogier for taking the time to so beautifully share your thoughts ... and thanks for being there for the Dycks. They have blessed so many of us and Deela will be missed!



Thanks for writing this. It's beautiful. I cried through it. Deela was one of those truly beautiful people. You captured her well.

don't know if you remember me... my husband Jon and I served in Ireland for 3 years and had the privilege of having some fun with Al & Deela during our SCO in The Hague. I'm the girl who broke down and cried in your living room during the SCO :). Deela made us some wonderful chicken satay and she took it upon herself to encourage and resource a couple of our children's leaders in Ireland. Thank you for writing this and sharing this with me. Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saint, Deela. Say hello to Sophie for me. Thank you again,

I spent a great few days with Deela in Portugal at the Leadership Summit right after she was diagnosed. I did not know her well - but I felt the spirit of God all around her. I knew then that she was beginning an amazing journey and was so thankful for her CAI family that would journey with her.

Thank you for this tribute. Our prayers are with Al and the children.

Wow, I sit here having read this and tears are streaming down my face. I came across an old magnetic photo, last thing Deela mailed to me to support her and her family as they went to Europe to plant churches. Deela was for real. I came across this picture and tried to find her on facebook. I did find her husband and one of her children. I friend requested them trying to find out how to reach Deela. I had no idea about her passing. She and I worked at Tuomey Hospital in Sumter SC many years ago. I loved that girl, anyone who met her did. She was an amazing nurse. We had some wild adventures in that ER, let me tell you. Her easy way, faith in God really got us through some of those nights I am sure. What a beautiful person she was inside and out. I am sorry I did not keep in touch with her and really sorry I can't connect with her right now. But praise God I will see her again. We will just have to catch up in heaven. Rock on Deela, I am sure you are having a blast. Julie Flowers Wade, Florence SC
