.... I never took up his open invitation to call for tea, after all I'm a busy man. He died yesterday and I really wish I'd taken the time.

"Rich, my oldest friend is a Dutch Liberal Catholic priest,"

That's a sentence very few people could truthfully string together.

But I deeply regret not seeing my friend before he slipped away to the great velodrome in the sky.  He was sometimes a naughty man, and a terribly naughty man the rest of the time, but therein lay his appeal.  How we did laugh.

Rich, my oldest friend is a Dutch Liberal Catholic priest, whereas I am a devout atheist, but he held a 90th birthday party for his father where everyone present told him how much they loved him, rather than rueing him passing before hearing how loved he was. It's a lesson I always try to put into practice with my nearest and dearest (even if they sometimes get right on my threepennys!)
