30 June 05 - 22:45 (happy) Birthday Willem-Jan!Mixed feelings this day, saying final goodbyes to my grandfather and at the same time my brothers 31st Birthday!
The priest this morning made a nice relation between the two;
You celibrate the day of your birth on your Birthday (obvious in english...in dutch the word for Birthday is actually 'verjaardag' which literally means 'aging'-day, a different meaning...).
The early Christians 'celibrated' the day of someones death as the Birthday in heaven. Another point of view, ah?
So I can say...Happy Birthday both of you!!
