My brother-in-law’s best friend just died at a young age leaving everyone connected to him frozen in shock.
The saddest part for me is that he was largely estranged from his family and that he had put his life on hold. He lived life like he was poor, even though he had plenty of money coming in. It was like he was going to enjoy himself “one day”.
Just before he died he had finally started doing things he enjoyed, buying a motorbike and doing up his house. Still, he seemed to be locked into thinking that now was for working, and later was when he would have time for living.
