On a brighter note than my last entry click Prev(ious). I finally received my Logitech diNovo Media Desktop keyboard and mouse set back today. As the original model was discontinued, Logitech replaced it with the ‘Laser’ edition which includes the MX1000 optical mouse instead of the original MX900, and a new base station to match. I’m yet to set it back up on our Home Theatre PC here, I need to re-install Windows MCE anyway.
So I’m all ready to go to the funeral on Monday, I’m still not sure whether I should make a speech if given the opportunity, I’ll probably rehearse a few lines regardless. I’m not sure what difference it would make, and I really don’t think that anything I could say would do any sort of justice or otherwise. It really is quiet peculiar that the person I saw almost everyday for nearly three years, suddenly is not there anymore. I had so much to say, so many ideas, and I really looked up to **** for guidance and strength, he gave me so much confidence and helped me to become who I am today. How do you deal with that?
I hate funerals, I’m not really sure why. My ex-boss / business partner passed away yesterday. I found out this morning on my way to work. He’s had on going heart problems for a long time now, although it was ultimately a brain hemerage that took his life. I’m not really to sure on the finer details, other than he was admitted to hospital sometime on Monday night, and that there were complications during surgery. He officially died at around 3.00PM, Tuesday 21st October.
I have to travel down on Monday to attend the funeral, I have the rough details in my e-mail inbox. I’m not sure whether I should make an epitaph speech at the funeral or not, I don’t even know what I should say or if I’ll have the opportunity. It’s weird to think that the person you saw 5/7 days a week for the past 2 years just suddenly isn’t there anymore. I really wish I hadn’t kept putting off going down to catch up with him, you always think there’ll be plenty of time. This has been a tough past few months for me, and everything looks pretty hazy at the moment. We’re all at the mercy of father time.
