I can confirm the findings of Esther and also have to counter some of it. :-)
When I came in, just bringing the newspaper, Frank was watching Babylon 5: The River of Souls, he was not sleepy at all. Together we watched till 22:00 hours. Then he decided to go to sleep. (And I could go.)
He is taking more interest in people around him. Greeting the nurce by name for instance. He said that he had read my entries in the blog and that he liked it. First time he gave comment to me, without me asking, and he was sincere about it.
My writing is pleasing him and I'm not half a writer he is. I'm in heaven. ;-)
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
