I'm just going to come out and say it; I'm not sure you doing it entirely right.
You've let someone amazing go and left a lot of people heartbroken. A man who gave the greatest hugs who, would hug you and you'd instantly feel better even if he didn't know you need that bear like embrace. Someone who was always pleased to see you; for a cup of tea in the morning, an afternoon chat or a drink or two in the pub on a Friday night. A man who had as much as enthusiasm as I did at 5 years old to play pooh sticks and termites for hours. A man with so much knowledge that you'd always learn something new when you spoke to him.
He was a man that touched everyone and will be missed by all. I could go on for days but for now sorrow has taken over. It will get better but for now it's taking those extra moments to be kind to each other, laugh, cry, hug and enjoy the birds singing and those bright sunny evenings because that's what he would have wanted.
