Je suis de tout coeur avec Vous et le JSO, après cette triste nouvelles, Ruud Merx est un musicien qui apporte du bonheur et de la joie lors des concerts , vous êtes une grande famille et vous vous soutenez dans les moments difficiles!
Toutes mes pensées vont vers sa famille , Vous André, et les membres du JSO.
Gutted to hear about Ruud hope to hear better news soon.
Thoughts are with Lin his family and Andre + all members of the Orchestra.
Dearest Andre - my caring thoughts sent to you and all of the JSO family as you go through this awful time. Such a shock to have this happen. Ruud is such a vibrant character in the orchestra! Waiting and hoping with Lin, the children and their family.
May I wish you a Peaceful Christmas, Dear Andre, and I look forward to seeing you in Glasgow on 24 March when hopefully your wonderful blue eyes will be sparkling once again.
Take very good care.
With much, much love
Awful news of Ruud and a terrible time for both Lin and all of his family and JSO (his orchestral family). He is an integral part of your orchestra, always doing something humorous, but a wonderful performer. We understand he is dreadfully ill, but will pray that he comes through for his family and for his many fans.
We were both very sad to hear about one of the orchestra family being so poorly praying for all of you particularly the person and their family.
With our love Sue and Frank weymouth United Kingdom
