In fond memory...

Most new beginnings start with an ending.  This one was more dramatic then we expected.  On day 2 of our stay in in Bulgaria my cousin Bart, the inimitable 'Conspiracy Cousin', suddenly died of a heart attack.  He had lived with us for the last 2 1/2 years, worked with us, laughed with us, cooked for us, joked with us, admonished and adviced us, he became like a brother to me.

On the days that followed his death, as we struggled through the bureaucratic mess of having him cremated he kept sending us little messages.  I'll leave you with a couple of them:

At least I'm sure he would have agreed with our choice of funeral director:

R.I.P. Bart

Oh! What a terrible shock for you!
But I suspect the perfect way to go for Bart....suddenly, without illness or gradual loss of vitality.
Thoughts are with you,

I'm so sorry,Heiko. So sudden, so shocking, so difficult. I know it will take time to sink in,let alone to get used to living without him. We've had similar losses, and we send you our love.
