When I knocked on the door of Harlekijn Holland in 1983, Franka was literally the first person to open it for me. I was invited but nothing was prepared, she organized everything on the spot. She was the person to call me a few weeks later to invite me to join the tour. It wasn't hard to find out, that, as Herman puts it in his epitaph, she was the soul of the company. I'm very sad to hear that Franka has passed on this week . She'll always have a special place in my memory, ...a hug and a kiss and I too hope to see her again. Tot ziens, Franka.
