A Friend’s Funeral

Yesterday I along with friends, went to the funeral of a mate.

Some of us had done business with him, some of us were childhood friends and others had been out with him over the years to many a party but all of us had been to Le Mans with him on our annual boys trip to the great 24hr race.

He was our age and his partner spoke of her love for him and how she felt robbed she would not be sharing her old age with him and how he would not see his Children live their lives. It certainly was a very sad and emotional funeral and burial, with not a dry eye anywhere; at the wake they served a glass of champagne for a toast to him and boy was that fitting, for he loved his champagne!

The occasion reminded us all just how fragile life is, for all the day-to-day stuff and the crap, at the end of it all not much of that matters, actually its about family, friends and the effect you have on those around you that does matters, now of course we all know that to be true but lets face it we tend to forget in the rush, the deadlines, the emails and pace of life, but we should not.
