I went to a very good friends birthday party last weekend. Several people were there that were mine and Ian’s dearest friends, and four of the lads were Ian’s closest mates over in the UAE. I was not prepared for the full impact of Ian being missing from that party. Every time I looked at one of those lads I was looking to the left or right of them for Ian to pop up. It felt so wrong to have them all together and have one piece of that jigsaw missing. That piece is gone forever and no matter how much I scramble about on the floor looking, I ain’t going to find it! It was a wonderful party and I was glad to celebrate it with friends, but wow did it hurt too.
