Only if you mean it...
I don't think i will anymore. Not after 2008.
Jan 2nd started with the sudden death of a really close friend of mine. He was in his late 30s, successful, loves life and armed with a sense of humor thats one of a kind. I had dinner with him few weeks ago. We were supposed to have breakfast in my place when he comes back home from his travels. I never thought that that would be our last dinner ever.
I will miss him.
I was still in shock by the loss of my friend when few hours ago, my brother SMSed me saying that my grandfather passed away in his sleep today. I haven't seen Jeddo since 2002. This year, I saw him for a few hours. He met my wife and daughter for the first time. He was a wonderful wonderful man.
I don't know what to say really... One thing i know for sure, if you are wishing me a happy new year, i hope you mean it.
Rest in peace Sofian
Rest in peace Jeddo
