Goodbye Frans

On Friday the 12th of April at 15:18 my father in law said his last goodbyes to his loved ones. We were all there when the doctor relieved him from his life, thanks to modern thinking.

Blog life and work is on standby until he’s cremated on Saturday.

Lots of love,

Yvonne xox

    I have missed so many of my blogs over the past few months as this flu bug keeps reappearing in our home. I just wanted to offer my condolences to you and your family. It’s never an easy journey loosing a loved one. When my father passed it was a LOOONG 2 year journey for him. It is a wonderful thing that you got to spend his last days with him. P.S. Your Snug Room turned out beautifully !! May God Bless you & your family !!

    Wat een verdrietig nieuws, gecondoleerd!Dat vind ik zo’n nadeel van ‘ouder’ en ‘volwassen’ worden. De mensen die je vanaf nu zult gaan moeten missen. Mijn schoonvader is helaas afgelopen november overleden en onlangs mijn opa (wat een heel ander verhaal is, hij koos ervoor en was er aan toe, 87jr maar toch mis ik hem vreselijk en is het verdrietig).
    Sterkte en veel geluk met elkaar en de lieve mensen om je heen..
