Anyone speak Dutch? Need an obituary translated
Just found out a friend of a friend passed away. There is an obituary on her website but it's in Dutch. This is the link.

1. I know people who do
but they're not online at the moment.

I could send one of them an email...and probably have a translation for you by tomorrow if you want.

8. Dear visitor
On the 5 of March, Peronne died unexpectedly from pneumonia.

The funeral will be on March 12. Following is the obituary from the Telegraaf of Friday, March the 9th.

The Ros Boddaert loses the Amazone.
Peronne.

Returning from an ecumenical conference in Talinn (Estonia), she died from pneumonia. Deeply saddened, but very thankful for all that Peronne has been able to mean to other people, we remember our dear child and our loving sister;

Minister Peronne Pauline Boddaert
August 19, 1969-March 5, 2007
Protestant Preacher in Lunteren

(Credentials follow, no need to translate)

The visitation and memorial service will be held at Salons Monuta, Jacques Dutilhweg 333, Rotterdam-Prinsenland on Friday, March 9 from 7 to 8:30 pm. (Directions for getting there are given)

Prayer service will be held Monday, March 12 at the meeting hall of the Old Kralingen cemetery (directions are given but time is not). There will be fellowship at the hall after the service.

We will remember Peronne in silence so there will be no speeches.

2. Well, I am part Dutch, and I know how to use this...
http://www.freetranslation.com

...but for some perverse reason, "de Webmaster" put up a picture with the obit rather than actual text. You're on your own as far as typing it in.

5. If you use eBay, maybe you could ask for help in one of the International chat rooms
The chat rooms there are just chat...not for buy, sell discussions
