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

This afternoon I was visited by Mathieu de Hingh and Walter Zaagman. i gave Walter two books and about a dozen brochures on various obscure subjects of military history. Strange as it soundsmay sound, I felt really good to give all that feels good to give away what I have collected. it is not worth much if I can not share it with good friends I care deeply for.

Frank in a generous mood

  1. It was fun receiving the stuff, though not as much fun as plundering without your consent would have been. Oh well, mustn't look a pile of gift-loot in the mouth, so to speak.
