The last few weeks were very heavy for my family because my dear grandpa passed away two weeks ago. We’re a very close family so this had a huge impact on all of us. We were all together the last night before he died to say goodbye. Although it’s very sad ofcourse, it’s how life goes. My grandpa had a tough but happy life and at the age of 89 his body though it was enough. The funeral was on a lovely, sunny day and they played beautiful music, which my grandpa loved. He used to play the violin and I think he’s the main reason why my family is so into music.

Something I didn’t know was his interest in photography. He made a lot of dia’s, which my uncle recently digitalised. I love old pictures, but looking at old pictures my grandpa took is really amazing.


And last but not least, my granpa himself, playing a really Dutch game called ‘sjoelen’.

    I’m so sorry for your loss. Got the news a few weeks ago about my grandpa’s illness as well, can’t imagine how you must feel.

    I really enjoyed his pictures though 🙂 Love the atmosphere in all of them! Hope the pictures will help you with your loss.

    Zeker mooie foto’s, zo heb je iets dat je bijblijft van je opa. Sjoelen, dat is een spel dat iedereen wel met zijn opa deed 🙂

    My most sincere condolences..
    However, I LOVE that 70s girl’s room with the posters and the curtains. So like my Mum’s 🙂

    Condolences to you and your family. I hope you can cope with his loss.

    Your grandpa reminds me of mine. He was also interested in photography, although, I never got to see any of the photos he took. I hope someday I will.

    Hi Liset,

    Wat moeilijk om afscheid te nemen van iemand van wie je zoveel houdt. Gecondoleerd. De dia’s die je opa maakte zijn echt geweldig 🙂
