Last night....

There was a memorial service held in the driveway where he passed away. It was nice. Low key. Friends and relatives from around the globe were there, along with most of the residents from our block of flats and some from the neighbouring block. Flowers were laid. Two short speeches given. One minutes silence held. Light conversation with a commemorative drink. Richard will be missed and remembered.

Thanks, Coz.

What really sucks is that he was such a top-shelf bloke. Rememebered everyone's name. Was really friendly. Always smiling and outgoing. Made everyone feel instantly welcome to the block of flats. One of those social glue types.

What also sucks is how he died. Very freak accident. He was leaning against his balcony, drinking a beer, and nodded off. Shittay. Still find it hard to believe.

sounds like a fitting commemoration.

What, he fell off his balcony?
How dumb is that...scary how easily these things can happen.

Sounds like it would have been beautiful and appropriate.
