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. Typing isn't going well today, is it?

    Don't judge so quickly, Frank. Being a nurse is hard work. Cleaning up shit, making transfers, listening to people who don't make any sense any more and calming people who hallucinate. And doing piles of pointless paperwork on top of that.
    If being a nurse was a relaxed cruise, it wouldn't be so difficult to find staff for the job.
    And assuming that they all watch Oprah and read Privé? really Frank? You know that's non-sense, you're better than that.

    a condescending Rense (pot meet kettle)

  2. and moreover I learned today that there's a daily nursing staff of three people on 23 patients. it's hard work in the care business these days. don't be to harsh on them.

  3. See it as a positive thing. The right incentive to organise your own improvement and rehab sceme. ;-)
