I first met your Dad when we both worked together at Business Objects. Though we were not part of the same team, whenever our paths crossed he was always smiling and up for some banter about anything and nothing. This made me smile in return. Only a small example of your Dad’s positive effect on the people he came into contact with but one that I will remember.
The suddenness of your Dad’s leaving us was a shock. It has reminded me of the importance of my wife, daughters, family and friends in my life. It even prompted me to tell my best friend that ‘I was so pleased he was part of my life’, which I would never have done before.
Your Dad’s passing has also reminded me that ‘carpe diem’ is the best way to live life. RIP Chris. Gone but never to be forgotten.
