Yes. Thank you guys for representing the forum.

In my busy little hectic world, I find that it's when I'm at my watch/work desk that I find quiet time to find time to be spiritually with him without interruption.

May his legacy live on here for a long long time.

Post Re: Just thinking out loud, for Sjever (Sjef)
First of all I want to thank you all for donating!

I have been thinking a lot, I have put my ear to the ground, opened up my mind to a few close friends, emailed a few HF members and today I made up my mind after a lot of thoughts and searching emails between Sjef and myself.

Sjef cared for the helpless and sick, so here is what I have come up with:

1. The wreath for the funeral, of course.

2. Donated half of the remaining funds to cancer research.

3. Donated the remaining funds to the homeless via Stadsmissionen here, the funds will make it possible for 40 individuals to have a bath, a warm meal, a Christmas present and a warm bed to sleep in and breakfast the morning they leave.

I think we did good here and I am sure that Sjef would have loved this.
