The 4 of November 2008 my life changed when I witnessed my grandfather pass away. It was one of those moments I will remember for the rest of my life because It was at the same time beautiful and tragic at the same time. I have had a really close relationship with my grandfather – more then I actually thought. He has been an inspiration for me and I truly hope that I can live out some of the same qualities as a human being. Yesterday I buried him together with the rest of my family and even though it was a moment of grief I also felt proud of being a part of his living legacy. I feel stronger and also relief that it is over now. I will be back in The Netherlands in the coming week.
