This afternoon I visited Frank with my husband and sons! Frank enjoyed the company of his nephews; they were constantly in discussion who was going to push Frank in the wheelchair. When leaving the Rondeel, the downhill slope worried me a bit; I was afraid they couldnt keep Frank from flying down in his wheelchair. But Bram (a proud 7 year old) told me all the time: do you see I can keep it right? I'm so strong!
The talking to Frank in the Rondeel was about his trip on friday night. Getting the taste of going out he told me he wanted to attend the club one time... the wheelchair cab is known and discovered! But the pub where Casus Belli meets is a problem: there are no possibilities for wheelchair and handicapped people. So I said I would make a question to the blog: is there a clubhuis/wijkcentrum/kantine van een voetbalclub or something like that where Casus Belli could gather one time in order to give Frank the opportunity to attend the club one time.....?
I hope anyone will be able to help!
Thanks in advance! Love from all of us!
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
