Yesterday's TV was very interesting, indeed. On the BBC first of all we had National Treasures Live, featuring H!S Warrior in Portsmouth. This was followed by Who do you think you are, about J.K rowling. it turned out some of her anceztors lived in Alsace and first were French and aftwr 1870-71 they were German. Another ancestor fought in World War I in the French Army at Fort vaux, Verdun in 1916. Fascinating stuff, all in all. So much better than what Dutch TV had on offer!
i am looking forward to what today will bring.
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
