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

Hi Frank

Today we visited Frank. I brought my husband and 2 sons with me. My sons, the youngest nephews of Frank, brought the hat with them that Frank bought for them in South Africa. He recognized the hats, i was sure of that, but he was very silent. He was in his chair in the central room where the tv was on. I wasn't sure what his mood was. To me it looked as if he was not in the mood for company. He wanted to go to bed, and when i brought him to his room we waited for the nurse to take him to bed. Waiting for the nurse, i noticed 2 unopened letters. My youngest son helped to open up the enveloppes and Frank enjoyed that there were 2 nice cards. So I support Andre's call for best wishes.
Good thoughts and best wishes, good energy, anything that will help him to keep up with us is welcome. From a small distance (i live in amsterdam) the only thing that i can say is that i experience all the warmth and strength for Frank. I hope so firmly that he can benefit of all your support. Thank you very much for all you kind support and energy!
Love, Marieke
