Lieve Hélène

I have many occasions when I know your nearby. Its music, its laughter, its little things that people do that remind me of you. Time has taken time for us to learn to live on with our lives. Its never takes away our love for you ever.
My morning at Tauranga Bay was sad, as I remembered the happiness we had in taking people there. It will be forever a beautiful place moving constantly with the changing tides, the force of the weather and the seals living nearby.
Take care of us, we know your watching.

Ik Hou Van Jou,

Good morning

And Hey Helen!! Good to read from you again

Just a short note, I am traveling down to Netherlands and will be staying in Eindhoven in the first week of December, just a question, are trains packed during 3rd/4th and 5th of December from Eindhoven to Amsterdam?

Was just thinking about you

Peter 30-06-2010 11:58

I wish you were with us. We are all struggling without you so very very much. I know you are watching out for us everyday now, and we certainly need looking after too.
Ik hou van jou.

Had a lovely time celebrating your birthday in Perth, was laughing, was sad, and we certainly drank a lot. Balloons went to heaven with messages on them.
Ik hou van jou.

Dear Hélène,

I miss you so terribly much. We all do. My family, our friends and collegues here in Westport. The lovely people at your work. It is so tragic.
I am trying to stay busy and I have but two days to go before reaching the last entry you made in my outlook diary. After that I really only have my memories. I know you were being careful. Because I asked you too.
My life with you was an absolutely dream, a wonderful time for both of us. We each had found our reason to love. Our life here was going to be perfect and our plans were good.
Take care where ever you are travelling.
I will love yu forever.

Ik hou van jou.

Vandaag kreeg ik pas mee dat je niet meer tussen ons bent. Ben best wel ondersteboven van dit bericht, ook al hebben we elkaar al jaaaaaren niet meer gezien.

Toen je geboren werd was ik dik bevriend met Helma en we kwamen vaak bij jullie thuis in de Papenbeek. We hebben ook vaker bij jullie opgepast. Als ik het me goed herinneren ging je pas heel laat lopen. Je schoof overal heen op je billetjes, hahaha.
De reisverslagen doorbladerend, ben je toch wel zo'n beetje overal gekomen. Wanneer ik je foto's bekijk en ze goed intrepeteer, denk ik dat je heel gelukkig bent geweest.

Voor de familie en iedereen die haar lief heeft gehad: Sterkte!!

Lieve Hélène

The sea was rough, it was raining, the wind was gusty, but still your corner near the ocean was beautiful.

Ik Hou Van Jou,
Your LVML xxx

Lieve Hélène,

Ik kende je als de vrolijke collega die ons altijd met veel enthousiasme omringde.
Met ongeloof en verslagenheid hoorde ik dat je was verongelukt tijdens je rondreis.
Rust zacht.

Heel veel sterkte aan familie en vrienden,

Irene 14-11-2009 21:56

Lieve Hélène,

Het is al een tijd geleden dat we contact hadden, maar toch zit ik vandaag geregeld wezenloos voor me uit te kijken.

Ik herinner me vooral de uren samen werken aan projecten en dat waren uren samen lachen en gezelligheid.Wat heb ik een bewondering voor je lef, positiviteit en kwaliteit om overal met iedereen goed contact te hebben. Hélène , je bent een kanjer!

Liefs en sterkte voor iedereen,

Paulien 14-11-2009 14:49

Beste familie en vrienden,

Woorden schieten te kort voor dit grote verlies. Ik heb samen met het Hélène zo'n 3 maanden door Australië gereisd en haar leren kennen als vrolijke, positief ingestelde meid met een enorme portie humor. Ik ben blij dat ik haar heb mogen kennen.
Heel veel sterkte voor jullie allemaal.

Liefs Paulien

Dear Peter, I am so very sorry your Angel had to go to heaven so soon. You and all of Helene's loved ones are in my thoughts. The excruciating
pain will never go away but you learn to live with it as time passes. In your hearts you will always be together! Take care and bless you.

Peter 13-11-2009 13:11

liefde van mijn leven, you are soon to be on your way home to your family. Ik Hou Van Jou, Peter xxxx

helen 13-11-2009 09:44

Helene - I feel so sad that I cannot get to know you better. I feel so glad to have met you. It is better to have loved and lost than not to have loved at all.

Nikki Roche 13-11-2009 06:01

I was so looking forward to getting to know you better and running the Buller Gorge Marathon with you. We had so much in common Marketing and events, travel, working in pubs, a love of partying and a lust for life. I was sure we were going to be great friends. RIP you will be much missed x

Kim 12-11-2009 15:42

Wow wat een heftig nieuws. Lees net het bericht op Op de havo heb ik altijd erg veel lol beleefd met Hélène. Familie, vrienden en bekenden heel veel sterkte met dit enorme verlies van deze vrolijke en levensgenietende meid.

Herman 12-11-2009 15:31

Heel veel sterkte toegewenst

Marielle 12-11-2009 14:34

Ook ik las het trieste bericht op en dan kom je op de site van een meid die vol in het leven staat en nog zoveel plannen heeft.. ik kan iedereen die haar kent en haar familie alleen maar ontzettend veel sterkte wensen de komende tijd.


Ricardo 12-11-2009 14:04
