Tributes – writing about people the living and the dead is still important as we celebrate their achievements and recognise how people have touched our lives.  So from time to time, i feel the urge to recognise someone whose i have come in contact with and who i am able to applaud.

most who write obituaries tend to undertake some research which is almost always important but at the end of the day if the person is someone that you know then the essence of a tribute is to capture his life in a way that is honest and truthful.  it is also one way in which to appreciate a person and also to let others know that there were different parts of the person.
