With a heaviness in my heart I have to say goodbye to a great friend and mate Ronnie this week.
Many people who were at my previous studio at Wyoming would be aware of Ronnie. He was a regular visitor to the gym, and quite a character. He was a little different, but he was a man with pure love and wisdom and an angels heart that not many knew. I was lucky enough to get to know him well.
As the saying goes, “No man is an island.” We all need to connect with other people to fully give meaning to our lives. Friends do not have to always be together to remain friends. Sadly since the gym relocation to Erina, our visits have been less frequent, but he was never far from heart or thoughts. He will be missed and always be connected in my heart and be remembered forever. It was an honour to be your friend. You touched everyone who came into contact with you as you went about your day. Your own life was heavy with sadness and illness, but yet you never failed to make people smile. Sadly, too many people were quick to judge you on your appearance to get to know your inner beauty. That was there loss.
To be a good friend does not have to mean you have to sacrifice an eye or a limb to prove your loyalty. Being a good friend doesn’t mean you always have ready advice to give. You don’t have to always understand what your friend is going through. You do not have superpowers to make all their problems go away. But what is great about a good friend is that when you need him or her, they come to your side and listen. A good friend is always willing to be there when you need them. And having someone by your side during the lowest points of your life is very important. That is the true value and essence of friendship.
Ronnie was a shining light in a major transition part of my life. RIP my friend. I will miss you.
