Gerry…

It is not easy to write about people like him. It is not easy because one of the few things he hated was being the center of attention. At the moment he is probably critically peering through his glasses into the display of my laptop.
Life brought us together in high school. We were reading the same books, listening to the same music. Both of us were equally keen on not staying for too long in one place as well as on being out somewhere in nature. He was tempted by the mountains. He was not the kind of people who live to work. On the contrary–he worked to live. And life for him was travelling. Life was a series of journeys which he carefully prepared and during which he met mountains and people–mountains that had given birth to different deities and people who spoke different languages. He got on well with both, mountains and people, and they got on well with him and accepted him.
I accompanied him on two of his journeys. Both of them were in the Himalayas–a geographical term meaning much more than “mountain” despite being the largest one. I think it was his favourite.
We were passing through villages and monasteries. We were passing by peaks, surmounting ridges and overcoming dangers. Some of them were serious, but I knew that as long as Gerry was walking in front of me everything would be all right. And it was.
Recently he embarked on the most important journey of his life–the one to the life beyond. He had been carefully preparing for it for a long time. I have no fears for him. I know that he’ll cope–I see him walking forward…
Good luck, Gerry…
