So are we allowed to be sad NOW, Wim?
Every time I’ve seen you since you knew that your brain tumour was terminal, you’d say
“Stop looking sad. You’ll have plenty of time to be sad later! I’m fine”
and we’d all cheer up and laugh and you’d say “We’ll be seeing each other again, anyway”
So your funeral’s tomorrow and I’ve missed you ever since Pim mailed me on Friday and I’ll admit to shedding a tear, because you were SUCH a cool guy.
I said to Ria a while back “I think Wim’s probably the neatest guy I’ve ever met” and she said with a big grin “Yep, I’d have to agree with you”.
That’s probably why she married you.
But we’ll be seeing each other again, anyway, so I can tell you then…..
PS Did you know that when Ria told the kids that you might act “a bit strange” after your first seizure and op, they said:
“What? Even stranger than NORMAL…?”
I love that line…..
