Yesterday Marco Langbroek and I dorve to Dunkerque for the funeral of
Pierre.
There were about 35 people attending the service. Qiute a few from the
Societe Photographique de Dunkerque, of which Pierre was an active member.
The service was short but nice. Hard to understand all that was sais as my
french
is rather rusty.
Shown was a video presentation of phographs taken by Pierre and a diarama of
PierreĀ“s life. Pictures as a child, at high school, in the army, at Slough,
at the
tescope in his garden, at work with his Commodore computers and some
pictures
of Eurosom meetings.

After the service Pierre was brought to the old cementary in Malo-les-bains
where
he was layed to rest in the family grave.
Although it had been raining almost all the way to Dunkerque the clouds
broke as
we were at the cementary.
Afterwards we spoke briefly with his family and gave them our condolences,
also
on behalf of the Belgian Working Group Satellites and Seesat.

Pierre, rest in Peace and watch us from your asteroid 142014 Neirick.

Marco Langbroek and Leo Barhorst
