It is one week today that Titien died. The sadness comes and goes in waves. Thank you very much for all the comments, memories, and words of support. I am overwhelmed. Titien touched everybody she interacted with and she was the love of my life.
Her funeral will be next Saturday, September 5th at 11 am German time. Maybe you can remember her then. Titien will be buried in a forest, her ashes will be under our family tree next to my mum and dad. The birds will sing for her every day. My best friend from high school is a priest and he will hold the service.
Some of you might know that Titien and me supported charitable projects in Indonesia where we help poor kids in remote areas with their education, for example by providing money to schools or by buying shoes for the pupils.
Here are the links to the articles Titien wrote about this. Rainbow project I is finished and for Rainbow project II, some but not all shoes have been delivered. The project is currently on hold because of travel restrictions in Indonesia due to the coronavirus pandemic, but will resume as soon as possible.
I was talking to Ernest today, our “man on the ground” who takes care that the projects are carried out successfully. He would be happy to help us with a third rainbow project to support poor children in rural Indonesia.
Should you consider donating in Titien’s name, I suggest to support the next Rainbow project we are planning. You can either transfer funds to Titien’s and my account with comdirect bank in Germany by SEPA bank transfer:
IBAN: DE53 2004 1144 0429 5515 00
or by PayPal to: [email protected]
I will select a suitable project together with Ernest and Titien’s family and will keep you updated here on the progress in regular intervals.
At her funeral, Two friends of mine will play the violin and accordion. Below a YouTube Video of a song I requested for her. Lacchrimae from John Dowland.
