John, thank you so much for the pictures.  You got no idea how grateful we are.  :)

Yes! I'm in Belgium where Heath's death is a non event  :(. I need these pictures so much...

Thank you John.  :-*

'Non-event' - yes, it's the same in Germany.  :(


Thank you so much, Meryl, Amanda, Anke!

Really, I NEED to do this right now. It doesn't make it any better, exactly, but--

You know.


Yes, we know.

Your camera is just fine John.
(And BTW, I'm Chrissi, not Anke. But no worries  :))

Sorry, Chrissi--my brains are scrambled, but good--and that's no joke!

Thank you for liking the documentation--but the photograpy is--oh well, well-meaning.

 ;D

John, the pictures - and the captions - mean so much to me.  Honestly, it feels like the realest thing I can find on the web for Heath.

Kelly, thank you too for writing about your visit.

The Aero is the place I was physically close to Heath.  Memory plays tricks, but I think maybe 12 feet away, max.  For an hour.  Of me trying not to make him uncomfortable - he seemed to totally notice when I was intently doing my best to absorb all I could with my eyes, so I would look away when he glanced over.  Gave me a chance to absorb Rodrigo, Gustavo, Diana, Jake, Michelle a bit too.  But it was Heath I had in my tractor beams.  Banner Hill reminded me the other night that Heath's parking ticket was clearly visible through his shirt pocket.  Aero.  He and Michelle both had that "so tired because we have a newborn" look.  Jake had a cold and kept coughing, sunk down in his hoody.

Fabienne and Chrissi, same here in Holland. On the one hand I got angry this morning because the free newspapers you get on the train are not running any news on it anymore. On the other hand I'm glad because I cry every time I see Heath's sweet face.... Crying on the train in front of total strangers = not good.

In Spain the press is not making a big deal about Heath's death either, but then again there's nothing new to report. However,  El PaŪs newspaper ran a story -I believe it was on Thursday- saying their news about Heath passing away was the most read and commented on Wednesday. I took a look at the comments and many, many people here were shocked and sad. I saw beautiful poems and messages dedicated to Heath.
