Thousend times thanks!

To all the followers of the blog, to anyone who has been supportive of Frank or us in the last months and especially after his untimely death we want to say thanks from the bottom of our hearts. In the week after his passing we received so much warmth, stories, care and love, hardly describable. To us it was a very precious and valuable week and it was so good to have Frank at home where so many of his friends could visit him. And all the help, stories and info shared in that week led to a beautiful goodbye ceremony on a beautiful sunny autumn day. For those of you who could not attend, or those of you who wish to reread the funeral speeches, we publice them here (in dutch and english) with some pictures in grateful memory of, and tributed to Frank.We will miss him dearly, thanks for being with him and with us, one way or another,

On behalf of my family and his closest friends, Esther

At Kalorama

A new start of the week and again at a new location. Frank knows the area of this new location all too well. Was Magriet in the middle of the fighting area of the 82nd US airborne division, Kalorama is just north of dropping zone T. Just to inform all of you that cannot place where Frank is at the moment. Now you know!

So Frank could have told me pretty much about the area but he was not. He was a bit restless in his new room, testing each and every position of his bed. And while Kalorama is a newer and more luxurious location than Magriet, it still is a care centre. Frank has no eye for all this luxery, a glass of water is what he wants. But only some water and gel to wet his mouth was allowed.

And DVD's, Frank has a restless apetite for more of his DVD's. He has asked for his thunderbird collection and told me where to find it. He already had informed me a long time ago about the 82nd.

3 opmerkingen:

  1. Did Frank mention those WWII details? It would be just like him.


  2. No he did not.

    He did explain it to me, about a few years ago, when we were playing Hells Highway.

  3. Oh what a pity. I thought he had mentioned it while you were visiting.
