A family tribute
Friends of John Gatens gathered at the monument for the remembrance ceremony. In the center is Bernadette Lejeune, who's mother was present during the battle in 1944. With her daughter Esmeralda she operates the Auberge du Carrefour and was considered by John Gatens to be his 'Belgian daughter'. John's portrait was gifted to Bernadette to be displayed at the Auberge du Carrefour.
