I just heard today that Freddy, who posted here for several years as Sobieski died several days ago. He hadn't posted here for some time due to serious illness resulting from a bad accident.
His funeral is tomorrow in his native Belgium and there will be a requiem mass here in Warsaw at a date to be arranged. He left behind a wife and young children, also both his parents have survived him. He was a thoroughly decent person who did a lot for the community here in his adopted home, worked here in television production and was for a long time connected with the palace museum at Wilanów.
