A thousand people have gathered in the crematorium of Wilrijk to say goodbye to Dries Meirsman. SuperDries, as everyone had since called. Because of his positivity. To his humor and his persistence. Superdries because of its relativeringskracht despite the terrible illness that put him in his power. After five years of fighting had Dries his battle on Easter Monday strike.
‘The World's Greatest’
all The best dear Dries. Finally you have your freedom, and you finally have your peace. That miracle where we can work as hoped, is not come. But you will always be there. Now, you're that angel that to go his own wayMama Karlien
On the song the World's Greatest wore brothers Stijn and Wout to the urn of their brother in the hall inside, followed by parents Eric and Karlien. In the meantime, photos of Dries with his family and friends projected. Mama Karlien loved a hug in her one hand. The other entwined in the hand of daddy, Eric. Karen Damen had specially the song ‘Beautiful’ by Marco Borsato completed. A song that Dries every evening listened. It was also a beautiful message of Hej to everyone: “How beautiful can life be?”
