The family would like to thank the staff of Breton Woods and Faith Hospice for their loving compassion and care.  Relatives and friends may meet the family Sunday from 6-8 pm and one hour prior to the service at Matthysse Kuiper DeGraaf Funeral Home (Kentwood) 4646 Kalamazoo Avenue SE.

  1. I am sorry that I cannot make it to the funeral home. You all have my sincere sympathy in the passing of Alene, a very nice and friendly lady.
    We attended the same church (EPCRC) for many years and I have good memories of her.
    It is wonderful to know that she is now with her Savior.

  2. Dear Post family,
    We were saddened to hear of your mom’s illness and passing. Our parents have been dear friends for many, many years. We have fond memories of “Hip” and Andy and were surprised and delighted to hear of of their mutual teenage antics! “Hip” and mom went to Forida a few years ago since they were both now widows. Please accept our heartfelt condolences and know we hold you all up in prayer.

    - Sadie Nederveld and family
