Samen met mijn vader op vakantie op Curacao is volstrekt onverwachts mijn moeder Ans overleden.
Ze was de laatste week flink ziek geworden, vermoedelijk griep - tegen longonsteking aan. Ans zeurde nooit ergens over, maar m'n vader overtuigde haar om naar een dokter te gaan, waar ze medicijnen voorgeschreven kreeg en het advies om thuis in Nederland nog eens de huisarts te bezoeken. Niet te ernstig leek het. Ze verslechterde echter behoorlijk, wellicht ook door uitputting. Mijn vader kreeg voor elkaar dat de dokter 's middags langs zou komen, toen hij daarna bij haar ging kijken leek ze te slapen. Een uurtje later kwam hij weer kijken en toen was het duidelijk dat ze dood was.
De schouwarts vertelde dat het een uiteindelijk een hartaanval was, veroorzaakt door de ziekte en zwakte; of dat nu echt griep was of iets anders is mij niet echt duidelijk, maar dat maakt eerlijk gezegd weinig uit.
Mijn vader moest nog twee dagen wachten op de vlucht naar Nederland, maar gelukkig hebben we hem nu hier bij ons, de drie kinderen. We konden hem gelukkig helemaal bij de gate ophalen. Ans wordt vandaag gerepatrieerd. Komende woensdag is de uitvaart. Helemaal in de stijl van Ans en onszelf gebeurt dat op een informele, hartelijke manier.

Ik heb voor jullie hieronder de rouwbrief klaargezet, met een paar stukjes onleesbaar gemaakt - wij en Ans hechten zoals sommigen onder jullie wel weten aan onze privacy. Hopelijk blijft het servertje waarop het staat een beetje draaien. Ze heeft altijd erg genoten van die rare hobby van jullie: we hebben in menig rimboe-dorpje in het buitenland met handen en voeten moeten uitleggen dat we euro's voor euro's wilden wisselen, dus jullie horen er ook een beetje bij.

Bedankt voor de leuke tijd die jullie onze moeder hebben gegeven.

Summary:

Ans (our number3) was with here husband in Curacao, where she suddenly became very ill. The doctor did visit her a few times, but the illness became more serious. It started out as flu, but (probably) due to exhaustion and weakness she died with a cardiac attack. Their three kids had to wait another two days before they could get their father at the airport. Today Ans will be repatriated. The funeral will be next wednesday. Completly in the style of Ans, it will be in informal and warm way.

In attachment there is the obituary. Mind that a few pieces are made unvisible, because she and her family liked their privacy.

They hope the ebt-server will keep on running, because it brought her a real enjoyment in this strange hobby. In many smalltime village in the wilderness, they have tried to explain about changing notes. The family did want to include us in this passing away.

The family also wants to thank us for the fun time we have giving Ans.

OMG, that´s really bad news! :(
May she live on in our memory and through her notes in the database.
It will be a strange feeling, should I ever hit one of her notes again.


From what I gathered over the time, this is not the first well known Tracker and Forum user who passed away. Would it not seem appropriate to install something like a "memorial hall", to remember and honour those fellow users who passed away? Just a idea...

It's not easy to find the right words at this very sad moment. We have missed a great member here.

I am sure that she will remembered by all EBTers everytime someone finds her note.


My condoleances to the family.

Dear ans

I didn't have the pleasure to meet you personally,
but i had the luck to have hits with you.
And there are more than 600.000 notes
who will remember us to a great user!

My condolences to all family and friends of Ans for this great loss.

I had the honour of meeting Ans while preparing the Dutch EBT-Meeting that took place on December 19, 2004 on her own holidaypark De Katjeskelder in Oosterhout, Netherlands. She was an enthousiastic and warm person that is and will be for always an inspiration for many Eurobilltrackers. She was for a very long time the number one of the rankings and she will be an icon for Eurobilltracker forever.

Rest in peace.
