Bjørn Nimand


Det har været en smuk dag i dag. Og en vemodig dag.
Vi måtte sige farvel til vores kære ven gennem 45 år.
Bjørn trådte forkert, faldt og endte brat sit liv alt for tidligt. I dag ville Bjørn have fyldt 59 år.
De musikalske brødre, venner og kolleger, samt ikke mindst familien, mødtes i kapellet og gjorde Bjørns afsked smuk og rørende.
Efterfølgende samvær i hjemmet med musik og nærvær afsluttede højtidelighederne.
Bjørn efterlader sig tre brave kvinder. Sin hustru og to store døtre.
Æret være dit minde Bjørn.

It was a beautiful day today. And a melancholy day.
We had to say goodbye to our dear friend through 45 years.
Bjørn took a wrong step and fell. Abruptly ending his life far too early. Today would have been Bjørns 59 years birthday.
His musical brothers, friends and colleagues, and especially the family, met in the chapel and made Bjørns farewell beautiful and touching.
Subsequent togetherness at his home with music and intimacy completed the ceremonies.
Bjørn is survived by his three brave women. His wife and two great daughters.
We honor your memory Bjørn.

8 tanker om “Bjørn Nimand”

  1. Carsten, I arrived via Gerry’s blog and wanted to read your thoughts on Bjørn Nimand.
    Then I remembered that Google allows you to translate fairly easily; I used that to read your eulogy to your friend and was quite moved by it.

    Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your celebration of the life of a dear friend.

    1. Thanks for your advice. It seems as if Google Translate does a reasonable job.
      However it doesn’t completely fit how I’d like to express myself. But with some changes this is the result.
      Thanks for visiting and commenting.

  2. How sad that your longtime friend left so abruptly ! I send you my deepest sympathy, dear Carsten. Sharing such moments together as you did today help supporting one another. May Bjorn Nimand’s presence and memory be with you always.

  3. Thanks to all of you. It is really nice of you sending these comments.
    We met when we were 14. Bjørn was in the class I came to when I changed school. We had so much fun – and learned a little too. We were ‘best friends’ for a long time. I have learned that the bonds you make at that stage in life are very strong.
    I was looking for pictures of Bjørn. Suprisingly I have very few. Maybe it was not important to take photos of him, because he newer changed and I could always take a picture next time.
    Suddenly there is no next time.
