Some days were necessary to accept this deepest sadness, but I feel so lucky to know you and sharing a part of my life.
From Gatwick to Mortlake office we spent hours together sharing site difficulties/solutions, life experiences, jokes, English meanings, typical British or French meals…
I know it was not easy for you to accept me as a coffee drinker without milk, also not eating mince pies or porridge… From my side, I struggled to understand the first time I’ve heard your best site saying, “If you can piss you can paint!” …
Looking back, I should thank EasyJet to let us 24 hours stuck in Jersey after an epic carpark site visit. We’ve learned a lot from each other, and we finally became good friend. I will never forget our good times in your favorite “London’s boozers” telling me how it’s important to enjoy our life afterwork and taking care of the loved ones.
Our last moment together was pictured at the end of the Three Peaks Challenge and as always you let us your famous grin.
We can’t share a last drink with you, but for my next visit in London I will have a chance to raise my glass from a corner of your Covent garden balcony with a powerful « for you Gary ».
We will miss you, Gary.
Charlotte and me sending our love to You and Lyn.
