The sun sets on another day…
Sunset was, well, it was beautiful, but my mind wandered a little as I though about a friend.
A few years ago I was in charge of a large project that covered a really large scope. I needed good people and found a few that were focused and could make things work. AS I did I found Mark. Mark was a network engineer with a lot of skills in a great many areas. His advantage was that he did not limit himself, and was constantly pushing for more. Over time a few of us developer a close rapport, then a good friendship.
Mark was one of the easiest going people I knew. As an ex marine some expected different, but Mark was patient and kind always, and worked hard to help people see a positive way through most. He was a good husband and father, he was just a person who made the world a better place just by being there, and we had some great fun together.
This week Mark passed away at 63. His legacy will remain and so will my good memories of our time together. I am sorry I was not there, but glad he was in my life.
So as the sun sets on another day, find people who make your day better. Make the world better as you can. Thanks for being a friend Mark.
Sleep sweet, love life, and farewell my friend…
