    farewell to my friend

    It is with a very sad heart that I must say goodbye to my old friend today.He has passed on.The reason I'm writing this here is that he and his wife of over 50 years had been coming to Aruba for 20 consecutive years now and even though he knew that the cancer he had was inoperable and terminal they still had all intentions of coming back to "the happy island" at least one more time this coming May.
    He loved coming to Aruba for many reasons:food,sun,but most of all it was for the friendly people they had encountered over the years.They always stayed at the playa linda(where they have two weeks in a timeshare).They even had their names on towels so they could put them by the pool or beach on a chair.
    I just thought maybe we could all send some thoughts/prayers the families way as kind of a Aruba forum send-off.I don't think he or his wife ever knew about this forum.however we all share a mutual bond to our best place to chill and relax....ARUBA.

    We're going to miss you Bob(R.I.P.)

    P.S if any mods feel this is in need of being moved please do so and inform me of such.I'm really grieving right now and don't have a clear mind.Thanks,Ted

    Without any doubt, we, on the "Forum" are sad that someone who both loved Aruba, and it's friendly people, has passed on. We of faith, all are assured that after enduring a long illness, with suffering, that family and friends that have preceded us by death will be there to greet us with open arms and lots of love. No more suffering, only joy an happiness are now his.

    Of course, we left behind are sad but are happy knowing that we will meet again. May he RIP.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your friend's wife and family. I also stay at Playa Linda and think I may have met them in the past.
