A lost friend

Postby Ireneb » Thu Jan 30, 2014 7:54 am

A good friend of ours died yesterday morning. I was with Angela, his wife, at his bedside when it happened, in hospital, after four weeks in intensive care. Feeling very sad, he was a very kind and generous man and we never expected this to happen to him. They had no children so we're all doing our best to support Angela as much as possible.

I don't want to tweet about this, too public, but wanted to mark somewhere that Malcolm would be very missed.

I'm sorry. That's an awful, devastating feeling. :(
True?

I'm sorry. He sounds like a wonderful person. I always wish they could stick around longer.
Lots of hugs to your friend and you.

Thank you. It's hit me quite hard. Having lost most of my relatives years ago, friends become very precious. :wah:

I'm so sorry Irene. And I know what you mean about friends becoming precious

Let me know if there's anything I can do
