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

Yesterday, tomybgreat joy, Esther brought me some of my favourite things. Th DVD set o Charles II, the poer and the passion, a dramatized biography of king CharlesIi and his ladies. The interestinf thing is that the actors and actresses look renarkably like the hidtorical countrrparts, or their portraits, anyway. Anither thing I am enjoying at the moment is Simon Schama's A History of Britain, the complete sereies, a set of six DVD's. The last thing Esther brought me was a wargame, Imperium Romanum II. This is a very intersting game to study and play, and i intend to do a Newsletter article on it.

  1. I agree. simon Schama is very good to watch.


  2. Do you often talk to yourself? (grin) Interesting tip about the Charles II film, I love historical costume dramas. As for Simon Schaamhaar, er Schama, he may be a good historian but he's so fidgety on TV that he gets on my nerves.

    Oh, and see you Saturday!
