Dear listmates,

By courtesy of Gosia and Iris from the PT-list, here are some details for those who can manage to attend the funerals (in Germany), or who wish to do something more private : (Note : the funerals being in Germany, let me also copy the German version of the details, to avoid any mistake about the rendez-vous).

1) Funerals :

the funeral is scheduled for

> monday 23.12 02

> in Wassenberg-Orsberg

> in the chapel of the cemetery

> at 10.00 a.m.


> Iris has talked to the secretary of David\'s office , she said that she

> would like to know how many people want to come (if possible) I think the

> chapel is rather small. David lives in the country.


> Here is the information in German:


> Die Beerdigung findet am Montag, 23.12.2002 um 10:00 Uhr in der

> Friedhofskapelle in Wassenberg-Orsbeck statt. Wer mochte, kann gerne kommen,

> allerdings kann es sein, dass man draussen bleiben muss (ich nehme an, die

> Kapelle ist recht klein. Au?erdem kommen ja auch nicht nur wir). Sie wurde

> vorab gerne wissen, wie viele kommen werden. Ich mochte Euch also bitten,

> mir kurz Bescheid zu geben, damit ich es ihr mitteilen kann (wie immer auch

> gerne privat)

2) Flowers - they are accepted - the address is (except for them who can manage to have them delivered to the chapel) :

Familie Orpin

Pletschmühlenstr. 16

41849 Wassenberg


3) Another possibility :

It seems that David had scheduled to make a donation to a charity. So, those who want to associate themselves to his memory can also make a donation to the S O S children\'s villages

here is a link to the foundation to which David said he intended to make a donation in one of his last posts to his friends.

Thank you.

Thank you.

Thank you so much Catherine for posting this information.

I just went to the website and made a donation online. It is extremely quick & easy to do - all you need is your credit card.

These are wonderful projects.

David gave so much to us all, this is the least I could do in his memory...

Thank you Catherine for having given me this opportunity to further give my respects in memory of David.
