Today's edition of De Telegraaf (Dutch most-read newspaper) features a short article about José's sadness after the recent death of her best friend Ad van Genechten. Years before Luv's glory era, José and Ad sang together in a folk group (see news posted on Luv's blog on April 18th, 2015). Ad later formed another band called "Dommelvolk" (popular in the Dutch folk circuit). He was a great comfort to the ex-Luv' singer after the passing of her husband in 2012 when she was obliged to leave her appartment in Lommel, Belgium. She later moved to Hilversum and became Ad's neighbour.
Sometimes, José made guest appearances at the concerts of Dommelvolk (see news posted on Januray 17th, 2015).
