Loss Of Very Dear Friend

....Sorry to post this here, but if FE feels it's inappropriate then please remove it.

My dearest and closest friend passed away 2 hours ago after a battle with cancer. I have made the usual phone calls, but e-mails going crazy at the moment.

He lived alone, and I will be organising the funeral according to his wishes as past to me a year or so ago.

He was the kindest, most talented person I have ever known, and even when in hospital for the last time, and heavily sedated, he asked "Shall we take our cameras out today"

A fitting tribute.

Sorry all.....Sometimes it helps Jeff

"We call that person who has lost his father, an orphan; and a widower that man who has lost his wife. But that man who has known the immense unhappiness of losing a friend, by what name do we call him? Here every language is silent and holds its peace in impotence." Joseph Roux.

Deepest sympathy old pal, I also know how you feel.
