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

  1. Visited Frank today to look at the possibilities of play of When Lions Sailed. This game from Strategy & Tactics 268 is a simulation of global naval warfare in the second half of the 17th century. It can be played by 2 to 4 players. See Blog Kom of July 10th for more details.

    Today I looked into possibilities for play. The "living room" is a possibility, but others accomodate their guests there as well. A better location seems to be the Cafe, tot the left of the main entrance. Shall we fix starting time at 2 p.m.? If you are early come to Frank's room, otherwise meet us at the Cafe.

    Mathieu mentioned below he wanted to come, so we have 3, and we can accomodate one more player. Rense told me that Andre is interested. Can you confirm this, Andre? Other interested players can say so here.

    I'm almost through my second reading of the rules, so we'll muddle as usual in a first play, but I can talk anyone through.


  2. Nobody else? I guess it is just the three of us then. We'll enjoy it, but a fourth person is still welcome!


    P.S. Frank, Les Downs is ready for play!
