Default Will be absent for a while

As you will have noticed, I haven't been around much, lately. My dad's condition deteriorated very rapidly over the past months, and he passed away this afternoon. We have been able to say bgoodbye to him, and he to us, and we were there when he passed away. For him it was a blessing, but we will miss him very much...

Thank you all so much!!
It is a busy time, my husband and I have to make all the arrangements for the funeral, choose the music, etc.. And Easter monday being a national holiday, we have one day less to get everything in order. The big blow will come when the funeral is over, I expect....

But it really was time for him to go, he had nothing more to live for, his body was shutting down, and even mentally, he was slipping away. But he kept his sense of humor till the very end. One of the nurses told me that they played a game a few weeks ago. Everyone had to mention something that could be found on the beach. So one person said: seashells, another seaweed, another sand..... guess what my father said?


Sophia Loren on a bathing towel......

That's my dad as I have known him all my life. His sense of humor never left him.

Mijn condoleances. Veel sterkte in deze moeilijke tijd. Geloof me als ik zeg, dat de goede herrinneringen veel waard zijn! ik stuur je een "virtual hug" en een gebedje.
