Goodbye Chris…

Chris GulkerWe lost my very good friend Chris Gulker earlier this evening – some four years after his initial seizure and subsequent diagnosis of brain cancer.

He was such a good man, a wonderful teacher, and a very special friend. Over the last two years that I knew him, we had many great walks together and shared so many things – as best friends do.

Hard to believe he’s already gone – but we know he’s in a better place and, I’m sure, making many more new friends and catching up with old ones. The tributes on his blog speak for the love so many had for Chris. Our love goes out to his dear wife Linda and the family.

[Update: I just came across this post from Chris – our first meeting was breakfast at Ann’s Cafe on September 21, 2007 – just a bit over three years ago.]

  1. Friendship is something, which cannot be easily explained. A common definition of friendship would be a relationship between two individuals, which is neither based on blood relations nor based on needs. It is a relationship, which is based on the compatibility and understanding of two individuals. Though there is much deeper meaning to the term ‘friendship’.
