I grew up in The Hague, The Netherlands, and got an AFS scholarship after graduating from Sacré Coeur Highschool. Before getting married in 1965 (the roaring sixtees) I worked at the American Embassy and in the health sector. We have 3 daughters and 11 grandchildren. Moved to Son en Breugel in 1974 and have lived there since. For many years I joined local as well as national committees. I made my debut in writing with 'Women of glass' in 1985. You'll find a summary of my work on my website. I studied cultural sciences at the Open University and started my company AP&D in 1988 (continued by my oldest daughter in 2002). In 1991 I founded the Talent Foundation named after my father and based on the parabel of the talents. This fund supports underpriviliged youngsters in developing their talents, worldwide. . In 2006 a book about the life of my father was published 'Peter van Tilburg, a merchant in The Hague'.
I am onesided totally deaf and hearing impaired on the other side since a braintumor was removed in 1998. It might lead to a CI (cochleair implant) within due time.
I am an author, poet, storyteller, write songs and received a Royal Decoration from Queen Beatrix in 2002. But above all I am a happy and grateful woman who will never forget the wonderful year with you at MHS.

Dear Beth, we've known eachother for 57 years. We shared our senior year in highschool and met several times at class reunions. You were a beautiful lady and it was always good to see you again and to have you around. We had fun at our luncheons with highschool girlfriends, from the peanutbutter sandwiches in the cafetaria in 1960 to the luxurious luncheons in one of Meadville's restaurants at our reunions. Thank you Beth for teaching me the American spirit. I won't forget you. Your Dutch friend Yvonne

A very happy birthday to you, Kathy. Hope your health is well and your family happy. I am very worried about what is happening in your and in my country and all over the world. May common sense win and may we all realize that we make the world we live in ourselves. You have been a good friend for more than 55 years, how special. I will treasure and respect my friendships, all over the world, always. Yvonne

Dear Gloria, a very happy birthday to you! As a retired teacher I know how much you care about young people. I strongly believe that they will be able to bring changes into the frightening and divided world we live in. I admire the millions of women who have the guts to stand up and protest against the respectless course your and my country - and Europe - seem to start sailing. I respect the people, from both sides, who keep trying to see all viewpoints and will go on to unite people instead of dividing them.
This is my birthday wish for you today Gloria: may common sense show us the way to a better life and understanding for everyone. And may it lead to peace for all.

Hi Paul! Your son's name is Erin. Yesterday I saw this movie 'Freedom Writers' (2007) with Hilary Swank. Her name is Erin in this feelgood movie about a.o. Anne Frank's heritage. I like brave people! My daughters say hello, it was so good to meet you in April! Wish you a memorable month of December in which you will miss your wife so much. Being together with your children will perhaps softe the pain a little. Be good, your friend Yvonne
