A last question

Helen Hintjens

I rang Jean in early June. Sometimes he would call me. Why then did he not tell me when he got sick and went into hospital? Now I will never see him again. This is incomprehensible.


Another request please

Dear Family of Jean If you have not destroyed my many, many letters to Jean could you please return them to me at this address: Helen Hintjens, 33/3 North Meggetland, Edinburgh EH14 1XG, Scotland, UK. This is my mother's place, but I am between addresses right now. Thanks Helen Hintjens


Friend of Jean since 1978!

Dear Family of Jean Houbert Je me presente - jétais létudiante de Jean en 1978-82 et puis jái fais mon doctorat avec lui. Je ládmirais beaucoup, et je lái aime aussi, pendant des annees, sans quíl le savait. En meme temps, il m'a aime sans que je le savais. Cela a dure une decennie sans que láutre sache. On n'a jamais vecu ensemble mais je l'ai visite souvent le long des annees. J'ai refait son jardin une belle ete. Je suis trop triste car avec le COVID je nái pas pu le voir depuis 2019. J'ai fait mon mieux pour l'aider mais j'habite entre les Pays Bas (Holland) et le Pays de Galles (Wales). Je voulais venir le voir a Aberdeen en septembre 2020 mais Jean má dit de ne pas venir, encore a cause du COVID. Je vous salue - si vous voulez m'ecrire un mot je serais tres contente, car je pleure toute la journee a cause du fait que je ne lái pas vu avant sa mort. Pauvre Jean, mais il a eu une vie isolee, certe, mais beau en meme temps. Il aimait tant la mer. Il aimait tant se promener. On blaguait depuis tres longtemps - lui en disant qu'il etait tres vieux (il a dit cela depuis mon age actuel de 60!) I am so sad today that I just found out that one of the best friends I ever had has gone. Lots of love Helen Hintjens hintjens@iss.nl or hintjens@gmail.com Please write to me! Thanks
