Damn it, Chris!

1. We were supposed to spend more facetime together.

2. I was supposed to pay you back for the many times you offered your help, support, advice and expertise.

3. You were supposed to be acknowledged as a legend in this field long before your untimely death. (For this alone, you deserve a bloody statue.)

I’m going to miss you, and I’m always going to be grateful for what you gave to me individually, and this country as a whole.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to indulge myself with a few tears before channelling this sense of loss into something positive.

Cheers mate.

Tim
