I haven't written in ages - a combination of being super busy at work and being super lazy at home.

I keep thinking about the friend we lost last year in a horrible tragic accident - it's one year ago precisely. I wasn't his best friend or in his team, but I can't believe it's already one year gone since we saw his happy smiling face around the building. Even though we weren't super close friends, he was still a great person who always had time to smile or say hi. I just can't even imagine what it must feel like for those closer to him.

People have been posting to his facebook still...his girlfriend, his sister, friends...It's eerie sometimes, like it's this tether to communicating with him, even if he's gone.

I look back on my gran's passing and while that's sad, she'd lived a good life and achieved so much. To pass on at 31, with so much more to do...I still don't understand it. I look at photos of him and I almost can't believe he's really gone forever.

RIP Brian. 1 year already - we all still think of you.

I think it is something you never forget when someone dies tragically so young.
It has been 17 months since Neil's brother died in a car crash. He was only 30 and had 4 sons...
I actually never met Tony but I still think of him all the time

i often think of neil's bro when i think of brian...similar age, so much left to do. i can't imagine what it's like with the kiddies and the wife. i always look at brian's page and his girlfriend changed their relationship status to 'it's complicated' when he passed (and it's been like that since). it breaks my heart every time i see it :(

Wow... 1 year ago. How brief and fleeting life seems :( It's so sad and seems so unfair when someone passes away so young. Have you noticed your perspective has changed since 1 year ago today?

yeah, it's not that i felt immortal but i never really thought about death that much. but in the space of about 2 months, 3 people that i knew passed on.

i also think about things like what would i do if J passed on, which i never really used to. i try and be more grateful for what i have now too - but wow, 31. so incredibly young.
