Raph R.I.P.

Postby The Slider » 06 Oct 2019, 14:21

I just received a text message from Monique, Raph's wife.

He finally lost his fight with oesophageal cancer yesterday evening
He'd not been a well man for a few years now
His funeral is on this coming Friday, which will be a bit short notice for me, but I hope at least one of our Belgian friends can make it.

Good rest, my old friend.
I shall miss you

I always liked him, and I'm sorry I never got to meet him.

Likewise. I'm quite saddened by this news.
RIP Raph.

That is very sad.

I met him a few times and he was a warm, charming, friendly man

RIP Raph - one of the good guys

I am so sorry to hear this. Raph was an absolute pleasure to be around. He had a huge knowledge of music, and always had an informed and insightful contribution to make. I really enjoyed spending time with him at many jolly ups . Rest easy my friend.

That's so sad. A lovely man.

I remember going to Waterloo station with the Slider to meet him off the train for his first Jolly up. I haven't seen him since that day but I never forgot him.

Sueños con los angelitos, Raph.

I was at his wedding, he was at mine.

Lately the contact was a bit less.

I'm sorry for that. Just last Sunday Slider and I talked about him.

Rest easy my friend, you were always fun to be with.
