Friend that pass away have special meaning to us. They are often close in age to us and their death may bring to mind our own mortality.
Life is no longer taken for granted. Someone from our generation has passed away. If the death is unexpected, there may be loose ends in the relationship that have not been dealt with.
It is common that the death of a friend brings upon us the yearn to search for meaning. We may ask ourselves if we are accomplishing the goals that we have set for ourselves.
REST ON DEAR FRIEND HOSA. You were more than a friend, you were more of a big brother.
REST IN PEACE, CAPTAIN HOSA IDAHOSA.
