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's T?v.

Yesterday I watched some Dutch TV. On Net 2they had part of a series of documentaries on the history of all honesty, the makers spent a lot of time reading up on their subject and it shows! Meticulously researched, th junior version was about the importance of sugar.when I was un Suriname in the early'70's, I saw a lot of it, including decaying plantatoon houses along the Commewijne river.all those memories came flooding back yesterday evening.

Greetings from melancholic frank

  1. OK, from now on we'll have no more whining about how bad Dutch TV is, okay?


  2. Oi Walter,

    een zwaluw maakt nog geen zomer, or to put it in other words: this one program is an exeption, not the rule, so e can whine on if he wants, because he's right.
