Today my best friend died from cancer. It was a rare form of lung cancer .He called me up at July 2012 to meet me with three other best friends of me
to tell us that he had not long to live anymore, It was devastating and we all were stunned and beaten by it ...
He was the center of our relationship , that is I mean me and my two other friends, we were the so called four musketeers of the computer age and we
all grow up with de commodore computer age and the commodore Amiga age.. day and night we had spend together with lots of [snipped] and lots of fun
... playing games and expanding our knowledge about computers until the sun would rise . But he was the Jedi in our mids, the Arthos of the musketeers
. We played Elite in the late hours and tested our first novel network on thirty meter cable on parallel ports run under Dos 3.11..
We landed Apollo on the moon on new years-eve with a soldering gun and joystick connected together , because the soldering gun had dip switches that
could easily manage the throttle so that he could steer and I could throttle Apollo down....when the clock struck twelve we set foot on the moon, I
don't remember the game anymore but we had lots of fun.. it was the best new-years eve of my life...it hurt writing about it ,because of the
memories...But hes just that guy that deserves to write about.
A gentle mind that always puts others in front of him always helping others to solve things .. always married problem types with border line, and to
stubborn to take advice from his friends.. But that was just him...
The last days and weeks were grievously , and the cancer took control over him , never knew that cancer could grow so fast and that irradiate cancer
could speed up the growth .. The worst thing was he had to settle in new place on the last days of his life... we all helped to paint his new house
and move the al the furnitures to the new location .. it was his last chance to live out to this day..
you will be missed ........and I will miss you my dearest friend of all times .. we will meet again someday, somewhere, in some place...and do it all
