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

A night at the opera...
This evening I came in and Frank was watching TV. Not in the most lively position and not too much interested in everything. We tried to play "Ace of Aces" but I was lost at the rules. Yeah realy! There is hardly a rule to the game and it has far more to do with strategy and outsmarting your opponent but Frank did not give me the time to look things up. So that went into the corner.Then Rome, the next season, was requested. Frank has several boxes form several series with the word Rome in the title so don't ask me which series this was. Realy, there is so much Rome in Franks room that I'm outclassed (as if that is dificult for Frank on this subject ;-). When the DVD was on Arvid came in. And Frank was visibly running on his last legs for today. Not much later he anounced that he wanted to sleep, not much music left in him. Must have been a busy day. So we said goodby and reposisioned his pillow for him.
