Just heard about the death, earlier this year, of a mate.
Great mate, all-round top bloke, whisky afficionado, advertising genius, dedicated twitcher, WWII tank enthusiast, snowboarder, fisherman, Mustang owner I will miss you.
I hadn’t been in touch for a while. I wish you’d made the trip over here to see our wee farm and I wish we had made the trip back to Sydney to catch up, but “Hey”, you don’t know when it’s the last time you’ll see someone. The photo above is the last time we saw you, back in ‘08.
Thanks for being just the friend I needed back in ’98. Thanks for the fun times in Sydney in ’99. I can’t believe you’re gone. Too bloody soon.
We’ll be having a wee whisky tonight in your memory.
