RLS (Real Life Syndrome)

I guess life is something you can never understand due to many reasons. Predicting the future would be a nice addition -if you ask me- to make our lives better. On the other hand, most of us, due to our incapability to predict the future, tend to believe that life itself, will last 'forever'; well apparently, it will not.
My dad 'left' for the big trip last week, aged 67. He was that kind of person you could call 'bon vivere', he was very 'alive' very pleasant and had the motto: 'live your life the best way you can'...
Sadly he left early, after 4 months in the hospital due to a heart attack episode, but I can tell you, he loved every one of his moments...
He was the one who told me about the arcade games when I was a kid, and got me there to play 'galaga' back in the '80s. He also loved Ms Pac-Man; I had him fixed a MAME PC last year - he used to spend hours and hours there... His only problem was 'why can't I have more than 5 lives?'...
Well, dad in this one, we only have one; and sadly, we don't get another coin.

I'll miss you...
Your son.
