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

Warm wishes from England

Nadat ik het Guild of British Battlefieldguids had geinformeerd over de ziekenhuisopname van Frank en over zijn beroerte ontving ik enkele warme berichten. Ik citeer uit de emails die ik ontving: Mike Scott schreef : "...My prayers and thoughts are with Frank and his family..." en Father Lt Col Ian Evans schreef : "Thank you for passing on the news about Frank's condition. I was so very sorry tot hear about his CVA and the result of the damage. As chaplain to the Guild I assure you and the family of my prayers during this difficult time. I pray that Frank remains comfortable and that your family are able to remain strong both for Frank and for each other. Celia Lee wrote: "My cousin Father John Breen who is a priest in Rome has sent the following message: I will celebrate mass for Frank van den Bergh. It will be on Wednesday at 7.00 am in St Paul's Basilica. It is the Lenten station mass for that day in Rome." Thank you very much for all your warm wishes and good thoughts for Frank. We wish you (all his friends and comrads) all also a lot of strength and thank you for your warm thoughts and prayers!

  2. Beste Jurrien,

    Bedankt voor het op de hoogte brengen van Frank's vrienden in Delft en Engeland. Zou je me door kunnen geven wie je hebt ingelicht? ik hou een lijst bij van personen die geinformeerd zijn om zeker te zijn dat we niemand vergeten.
