After the ceremony vistors could condole the family and bring a last salute to Viktor. That was of course a long queue. In the mean time at the exit of the church there were lots of encounters and talks.
Many people went after the ceremony to Restaurant Houtrust in Hooglanderveen for a cosy gathering. An excellent meal was served. After 18:00 hours some musicans sat together and played Papua-music. The gathering was officially finished at 19:00 hours but it lasted until 20:00 hours before everyone was really gone.
