Bompa: 11/2/19 – 31/5/08

My grandfather passed away last night. After losing his wife 7 years ago, he was well on his way to become a fully independent, self sufficient widower, defying our biggest fears. But cycling on the cobblestones of Bruges proved to be a difficult undertaking, and his fall caused brain damage affecting his speech. More recently, he had difficulties recognising the family.
But luckily, I have a lot of fond memories of the man. Our endless walks around Bruges, cycling to Zeebrugge, his being there after school… we’ve done a lot together.
