‘We say goodbye, but she will remain in our memories forever as a very strong woman, a woman that all women can take as a great example’, Trijntje writes about the mother of her boyfriend Alvin, the twin brother of her good friend singer Berget Lewis.
The 47-year-old singer has known Olga since childhood. ‘I have been visiting the Lewis family since I was 15. We were neighbors and were together in our first band Total Touch! Even then, Olga Lewis made a special impression on me. If she regularly paid at the checkout of the supermarket where I had my first job. I could never have imagined that she would become my mother-in-law more than 25 years later. ‘
Trijntje felt very welcome with her mother-in-law. Her two children, who she shares with her ex-husband, were also received with open arms. The singer has promised Olga to continue to take good care of Alvin. ‘And to transfer her women’s strength and legacy to her beautiful granddaughter Maël and of course also to the other kids Eljah, Jonas and Marijn. Now Olga Lewis can rest in peace after a long special life ‘.
