Dear friends and family,

please find a new message about the sad news you received earlier.
On tuesday the 3rd, we went to Ft Lauderdale by plane. We arrived late in
the evening.
On wednesday the 4th, we went to the Prinsendam. Chief Engineer Jaap Wisse
explained to us what had happened. We did speak with the doctor involved.

She stated that it was not possible to get Marcelines heart rhythm back to
normal. That night, Marceline passed away at 05:16 am.
After meeting the captain, we went to the medical department, where we have
seen Marcelines body.
The chief engineer showed us the ship, including Marcelines' cabin.
The result of the autopsy which has been carried out, is that she has died
in a natural way.
Her body will be transported to the Netherlands. However, the exact date is
not known yet. Because of this, it is not possible to say when the funeral
will take place.
We hope to fly back to the Netherlands on saturday.

Kind regards,
Family Goedegebuure.
