Pierre Bormans: 30-07-1943 – 30-07-2020: 77 years
With Walter ten Brink (left) Pierre (right) and I (photographer) had a festive outside luncheon at the Gastendonk in Horst. Chief Joep Verstappen was also chief at the Michelin star restaurant “Valuas” in Venlo. The restaurant uses most vegetables and spices from their own plantations.
Lunch and a niece afternoon on the terrace at Hannie and Walter ten Brink. Walter was -at the time that I met Pierre in 1978- managing director of the Horst local hospital. He was internist. Later, when the local hospital closed down, he was internist in a hospital of the neighboring village Venraij. I met Hannie and Walter also in 1978 🙂 🙂 🙂 .
Now that it is about 14 years ago, that Pierre finished his practice as a GP in the village of Horst (Limbourg), thare remain social duties towards former patients, collegues and friends. Today we visited a 77 year old lady, who suffered from lung cancer at the time that Pierre left the practice (July 31, 2003) and a collegue GP of 92 years, with whom we were both involved: Pierre as a direct collegue GP and I as guest parent for a grandson in Amsterdam: Pierre Alain, son of Joost, who is a professor in bio-micrology in Osnabrück (Germany). With the collegue GP we had lunch in GEMBER
Afterwards we went to the GP’s house, next to Pierre’s former practice. The house is immense for a man alone (his wife died about 5 years ago and all 5 children live abroad or in the Netherlands).
