The sudden passing of someone you know provokes all sorts of feelings. Peter Corrigan was not close friend of ours. He was a man we had met on a couple of occasions, but somehow we knew him and were glad that we did. He loved life and it showed. He was a big chap and leaves a hole in many lives that will not be filled. Many will miss him and mourn him, none more than his beloved family.
It seems unfair that he should depart when he had had so short a time to enjoy his retirement. He had any number of dreams to pursue. If it can happen to Peter, it can happen to any of us, and I start to feel very vulnerable.
