Charles Jozef Willem Mioulet, 1963-2009

In among the bills for this week, the news I'd been dreading: Joost passed away peacefully in his sleep on March 18th. He was 45 years old.

It was love that had given him the strength to withstand his illness for the last 10 years, and at the last, it was love that gave him the strength also to let go.

He did that...His strength of character was amazing, and exemplary.

Thank you. Even though his death was not unexpected, it has still come as something of a shock.

There are no words... and yet in this medium words are all we have - so suffice it to say that I realise how much this means to you, and I will be thinking about you and his family.

Thank you. It's hard to lose a friend, but I know he's at peace and free from pain now. He's fought so hard, so long, and so bravely, but in the end he couldn't win.

I'm really sorry to hear about Joost, G. My thoughts and prayers are with you, and with his family. He fought a valiant fight.

Thank you, Jules. It's his funeral tomorrow, which he has planned to the last detail; but when it's over, I'm sure his family will need all the prayers to help them get through the difficult times ahead.

Dankjewel. Joost laat een grote leegte na, maar ook een schat aan herinneringen en een groot reservoir aan vriendschap en liefde. In mijn hart, en dat van zijn gezin, zal hij nooit sterven.

Thank you. Prayers are most welcome, esp. on behalf of his family. I have lost a friend; they have lost the best husband and father.

*hugs* Death sucks. I'm certain, though, that he's movin' on to bigger and better.

Thank you. Joost really did believe that death was not the end, so 'bigger and better things'...I certainly hope so.
