He was visiting his brother and his sister in law in Voorburg (my grandparents). We were going (with my little brother) to the McDonald’s and uncle Jacques wants to pay 3 mcflurry’s with american dollars at a dutch McDonald’s (many years ago). Thats my best en funniest memory of uncle Jacques.
May he rest in peace 💗💫

With friendly regards,

Roxan (daughter from uncle Jacques niece Karin).
