A Personal Message
Philippe was a man of the world but a true Belgian at heart. He was kind, funny, extremely generous and would light up a room with his captivating personality. He was loved by everyone who knew him and was just one of life’s good guys! We were so lucky to have had 31 wonderful years of marriage. Philippe was the best husband , always there for me. Looking back I will remember with sheer happiness our younger years living in Brussels, Paris & London – we had the time of our lives! He was also an amazing papa to our two daughters Ashima & Kaya. He gave them a childhood that most people could only dream of and they will cherish those memories forever. He gave the best advice, helping navigate them through life’s ups and downs. I have no doubt they will make him the proudest papa in heaven and have faith that he is guiding them each step of the way. Philippe was my world!
