This isn’t going to be a proper blog post, more just a thought that has been on my mind these past few days. A couple of days ago I lost someone close to me in a motorcycle accident which tragically killed him. For the past two days I have spent a lot of time with the family that he has left behind and the gap that is left could never be filled.
When something like this happens, nothing in the world can prepare you for what you feel, and you feel yourself asking a lot of questions which will have no answers.
I have personally been able to take some comfort in that the way this person was taken from us, was fitting to them. They went instantly feeling no pain, doing what he loved with one of the people he loved more than anything. He was living life to the fullest and enjoying his time here. Sadly this does nothing to ease the pain for the loved ones he left behind. But when you put yourself in that situation. Not many people can say they have done the same, many fade away over a period of time, spending months in hospital and agonising treatments. Like I said, I take some comfort knowing there was no pain and that his last moments were spent doing what he loved.
For purely selfish reasons I hope that when my time is up, I go the same way.
We’ll all miss you mate
