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.

I am pleased to see that my instinct was correct.

There are still some funds on its way in and I will hold on to them and arrange for flowers on his grave on his birthday next year, that´s a tradition in many countries here in Europe. Just to show that he may be out of sight, but not forgotten.

Thanks Yoda, I'm glad I could be part of this.
Leaving flowers next year is a good idea, you're a good man indeed.

I have received some more funds lately and I could hold on to them and send flowers for his birthday on October 18th 2017.

It´s a tradition to do so in many countries in Europe and I hope you are with me here, otherwise I am open to suggestions.

Thank you for your efforts Michael.
It would be also a great gesture to the ones he left that he is not forgotten :thumbup:
