the last goodbye  
it was one of the most crowded wakes i've ever been to - like the way it was in the icu, packed out with friends and family there to accompany him on his final journey.

two heart-breaking moments.

edmund: "are you okay?"
yvonne: "i am now, but i won't be tomorrow morning" (cremation at 9am)

i looked across the crowded hall to see alex's mother standing with a vacant look on her gaunt face. suddenly her legs gave way. it was a good thing an aunt was nearby and caught her before she fell over. relatives all around rushed up to take care of her. her face was so blank, yet so full of unspoken sorrow...

he looked so peaceful lying there. we can only imagine the pain he has been through in those 35 days. it was such a beautiful portrait of him they'd chosen to frame up... he looked so healthy and happy.

goodbye, alex.

it's so heart wrenching, yet i felt a sense of relief for him.

farewell alex.

I'm really sorry to read the news of this. I was out of town for a few days and am just catching up now. I hope you're doing alright.

Hi there,

Stumbled upon your blog through Smoot's link on her blog (am a reader of her blog but don't know her personally).

My mum and I reacted with horror, shock and anger when we read about Alex's incident with the cab. We do not know him personally but cannot fathom how one stupid act took the life of a man. It is utterly senseless and all we could hope for is for the bastard to get his just desserts.

I now read that he is a friend of yours and we send our deepest condolences to his family and friends. Take care and keep well.
