Iris, Daniel and their children Elke and Mecheal have been great friends and hosts for me when I am in their area of Belgium. Iris and Daniel are very interested in the history of WW2 in particular and the Canadian role in the liberation of their area. They are members of the Royal Canadian Legion and are trying to start a branch in Maldegem. In fact they are part of the Colour Party for the RCL Zone Europe. The family usually spend their holidays touring battlefields and cemeteries in France and Belgium.
I am proud to call them friends.
