Jean-Lou ooit was je mijn supervisor bij PanAm in Brussel. Werden vrienden, Lizzy en ik samen zwanger van ons eerste kindje, veel gelachen samen, aankoop eerste hondje van jou en Lizzy die ons appartement meteen doopte, samen streken uitgehaald op de luchthaven, …. Enkel jouw naam alleen al brengt een "smile" in mijn hart. We zullen je nooit vergeten. Veel sterkte aan de familie en kinderen. Reply to this comment
