She's like the girl with the smile in the hospital ward...

So, this is gonna be a brief one.

My friend died on Sunday. He was called Colin. He was 37. He leaves behind three children and a wife (Kelly). We don't know what caused it, but a catalogue of awful events all contributed. Flu type thing, seizure, cardiac arrest, no oxygen for 15 mins, life support machine, brain dead. I went to see him Friday night to talk to him, to try to make him laugh, tried to see if he would react to anything at all, but he didn't. Not even Marrillion could wake him up. They switched off the machine Sunday night. His wife said he wasn't scared of dying so that is a comfort to me in a strange way.

Rest in Peace.

Here is a list of my favourite songs at the moment:

Rose' - The Feeling

To Build a Home - Cinematic Orchestra

A Bad Dream - Keane

Cover my Eyes - Marrilion
