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

Making us up for the move to Kalorama

Tomorrow Frank will be transferred to Nursing home Kalorama. So I packed his stuff this afternoon except the moviebox of Sharpe and the TV. He's constantly watching TV and when I stood in his line of vision he made clear that I had to move, giving commands is still intact ;-)
Frank is looking forward to his move and at the same time is a little bit nervous. What will it bring. Although there's clearly positive development in his awareness, the improvements go very gradual.
For all of you once more the address

  1. My last visit to Frank while he is in Magriet.

    He knows that he is going to Kalorama but had forgotten that most of his things were already packed. A bit distressed that his things were missing but could I press the play button to watch the next episode of Sharp?

    That is what we did until the nurse gave me a final call and wanted to prepare Frank for the night. Could I have ten more minutes? "Ten minutes sir but then you have to go". Frank was also clear in his comments. "Andre, sit and watch".

    Twenty minutes later they came back. Wonderfull room, this tardis. I wonder what Kalorama is like.
