Grave of Theodorus Joannes Gerardus Adrianus Pardoen, Witteveen cemetery

The grave of my grandfather, Theodorus Joannes Gerardus Adrianus Pardoen (1914-1978), in the cemetery of the village Witteveen, province Drenthe. The epitaph Zie, ik maak alle dingen nieuw (Behold, I make all things new) is from the book of Revelations:

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
