I don't know what to say. I don't know how I feel, apart from numb and tired and weepy and terribly, terribly sad. So for now...
"Goodbye my Dear Old Friend
There during each other's mistakes
There during each other's entrance into adulthood
There at too many weddings to count
There at The Bevvy; there in the pond!
There in the pub,
There up Falkand Hill then there at the Races
There only a few months ago buying me a meal
And there at a funeral, the last time I saw you
And now I will see you for the last time, there at your own.
Afterwards, there in your place will be memories of your laugh, your walk, your temper, our You.
Bye Gary, life won't ever be the same xxx
