Many thanks Jerome, it would have been hard to accomplish without you!

I was thinking, there are no children mentioned and we are not aware of the situation his wife may be in now.

So, I have asked a close friend of the family about this and if it turns out that we have more funds than we need for the wreath and so on, then we could do something for her. Just a thought and I think she would welcome the gesture, big or small. Time will tell what we can do, let me know if you have an idea when we get that far.

With your permisson I will present the balance and hold on to the remaining funds and wait for an answer from the friend.

Let me know your thoughts.

Thanks guys!

I have the funeral card, we will also have pictures of the wreath to share with you all, I have already arranged my own private farewell to Sjef earlier this week and if it is ok with the community that picture will be shared too.
I will have to ask a seasoned member for help with the uploading here in this thread - or in a new one so the thread will be kept clean and easy accessible. I haven´t decided yet and suggestions are most welcome, here or to my private email already written in the first post of this thread.
It is easy to be blinded in situations like this, so please feel free to speak up.

All set then, I think we have thought of everything we could right now. I thank you all for your words and efforts today.

I have received news from their close friend, from the funeral card I suspected this and he confirmed that there are no kids and it isn´t something they have ever talked about. It just never happened and we can let that part rest and concentrate on Nellie.

We will wait and see what can be done for her, but after the funeral as she will go through a hard time now and she will be better equipped to answer that down the road.

Think of Sjef on Monday, 11:00.

Sjef Verhoeven, ⋆18-10-1954 - † 08-12-2016

I asked a couple of members and the general opinion is to leave the donation possibility open without a deadline, the funds we have left after Monday will be used for his wife, how is to be decided by the community down the road.

I had been wondering how Sjef was doing since I hadn't seen him on the forum for a while. I haven't been around as much lately either, and I'm sad to hear that he has left us. He was one of the good ones.
