To my friend
On Thursday I returned to the UK after working abroad for two years.
Yesterday, I got the terrible news that a longtime friend had passed on. This has to say the least left me shell shocked and sad.
Big guy - you were a proper gentleman, fine fellow and wonderful writer. You brought laughter to your pub and were always game for a pint.
It’s hard to think of anyone who had more original, better chat than yourself.
And now you’re gone. It’s not fair, we were supposed to go for a catch up pint at our usual spot.
I miss you big guy. I miss my friend and never got to say goodbye.
Where ever you are buddy, I hope you’re well, merry and smiling.
