  1. Dear Frances, Michael, Edward & Families,
    I only by accident found this – My Condolences for you all for the recent loss of both Frank & Helen and of course your mother Josephine earlier. I hope you all remember me, having worked with Frank for many years and a younger Michael too as a teenager at AAA, Frank was a Great Boss, friend and funster, often regaling us with stories about his work antics over the years and the pranks played – I visited your home many times at his insistence as a young man when you were teens and greatly enjoyed his mentoring. Having only recently lost my Mother in August just short of her 90th Birthday, 2020 has been a difficult year for everyone but I’m sure that you will all comfort each other as a family going forward and constantly remember those wonderful & Special times that you all had together.

    My very best to you all – Would love to catch up some time if it ever became possible xxx

  2. Dear Frances, Michael, Astrid, Edward, Penny and grandchildren,

    What a beautiful service this was. Thank you for the wonderful stories you shared with us. I have good memories of uncle Frans. One day when he visit us in Holland we went sailing in the Weerribben. It was a beautiful sunny day and we paddled our feet in the water from a jetty. Uncle Frans could tell wonderful stories which I always enjoyed. Thank you for letting us be parth of the celebration of the life of our beloved uncle.

    Love from Rosalien, Sam, Arthur and Seppe

  3. hartelijk dank,dat we de gelegenheid kregen om deze dienst bij te wonen.voor de familie een beetje triest,ik zeg een beetje, want Frans heeft toch een aardige tijd op deze aardkloot rond gelopen ,en veel genoten ook we kennen hem als een zeer grappige en ook ondeugende man,de dagen als hij bij ons was genoten we erg van hem,en de tijden dat ik zelf in Australie was dito, een keer met mijn Guus,dat was een onvergetelijke tijd geweldig met Frans was het altijd feest.ik geniet nog als ik de foto,s en filmpjes zie. Frans bedank voor je vriendschap,en dat je mijn (onze) zwager was.

    We have just watched your family celebrate of Frank’s life. It was a very special and beautiful event which captured your loving family. Frank was a wonderful man. I can always remember him and Hank arriving at our home on their motorbikes. I was young and Frank was so friendly and funny. I often look at the wedding photos where my sister Martha and I were young bridesmaids. It was a beautiful day. I will always remember Frank and all his family and I am sure you will always feel his presence in your lives.

  5. Such an honour to conduct the funeral today for the lovely Frank, his humour and smile will be sadly missed, love to all the Postma family.

  17. Dear Frances, Michael, Edward, Astrid and Penny

    I do recognise your Dad in your loving words and speeches and memories. He was such a caring and warm (and humerous too) man/ uncle. I have met him twice in Melbourne and several times in Holland.
    Remembering him telling stories while I was driving him from Schiphol to Limburg, we had a funny conversation.
    The service was indeed a warm and thankfull celebration of his life. We, surely, keep good memories about Frank.
    Sending my condolences and those of my sister and brothers too. Hugs, Marian

    Condolences to all the family at this sad time.

  19. Dear Frances, Michael, Astrid, Edward and Penny,

    I have so many beautiful memories of your lovely dad, he made quite an impression on everyone he met. His life was full of love and laughter just as it should be.

    Frank lying on the floor in front of the TV watching the soccer. Moving three Fords in the driveway to get to the fourth Ford. Tinkering in his under the house workshop on a project. Following careful instructions in the garden from Josephine. Playing with his beloved grandchildren. Smoking a cigar on the back porch whilst telling tall tales. Giving his children his undivided attention, love and support. Smiling. Laughing. Loving. A truly good man.

    Your loss is great but fortunately you have such a treasure trove of wonderful memories to keep him alive in your hearts always. Our deepest condolences.

    Big love from Tracey, Joseph, Grant, Alexander and Ethan xxxxx
