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

After long nightsleeping, Ihave awakened. I also seem to have a cold, snif, snif, i am curious to see what the coming week will bring. I will find out in due timr. The nurseshere in the S MK keep treating me very well;they even help me to get on the toilet when neccessary. I am impressed with them.

Signing off

  2. A typo which makes the title "Wakker" read as "Kakker" and you talk about nurses helping you on the toilet... Frank that is a Freudian slip of a little more information than we need :-D

    By the way, I'll be in Nijmegen today, but way too early for visiting hours. I will try and visit you this or the coming week, though.

  3. Making transfers to the toilet now? Another very useful skill! There is no stopping Frank the Tank!

    Brinkie: it might be worth it to call the Maartenskliniek and see if you can visit around lunchtime or between therapy sessions. Or if you're close by, just walk in and ask, they often let you visit for a short time.
