The show must go on

With the tragic events that have occurred over the weekend, one can imagine the sombre atmosphere at the office. Family members that came down for Jason’s funeral, as well as Patrick’s mum and dad, also made a stop at the office.

However, through sadness, the fact remains that the show must go on. While succession planning is a usual thing in planning projects, no one expects that something like this would happen. So far I am happy to see that the team has been putting an extra effort in trying to fill the gaps that are left.

I am also in that category, making that effort to keep working, but for the simple reason, it distracts me. Distracts me from the sorrow that I feel and that thought of the horrific circumstances of it all. For the most part it works, but it is still hard to believe it all.

After all this, I am going to make an effort to really enjoy life and to feel alive. Patrick has inspired me, both in life and even in death.

  1. Hi

    To say that I am shocked and saddened by the untimely deaths of Patrick, Jason and Maggie would be an understatement that I am sure is felt by all who knew them.

    I had the privilege of working with both Patrick and Jason for Fujitsu on the DTI account in London. I mentored or ‘buddied’ Patrick when he joined Fujitsu on the graduate scheme. He was and will remain an inspiring and motivating influence; eager to assist and impart knowledge where necessary. Nothing was too much trouble for him. His passions were web development, climbing and music; he was an avid guitarist. I often spoke to him about us doing something musically together.

    My heart goes out to Mikis. She has lost her husband and best friend.

    A few months back Jason called me. He was revelling in the Trini Carnival spirit and teasing me that I was stuck in London whilst he was ‘whining up’ himself in the festivities. My retort to him was ‘get me a sodding job down there’ before the phone cut off! He was trying but for whatever reason it did not come to fruition.

    Jason was one of the hardest working guys I’ve ever encountered in my life. He was a gifted SPM and was meticulous in his work ethic and dealings with his clients and colleagues.

    I’ll never forget the nights out and revelling in the bars and clubs. Both Jason and I would pack away several Jack Daniel’s and Coke, whereas I would pass out and sleep….Jason would just keep going! Those were the good days and these memories will definitely last forever.

    Both Patrick and Jason will forever live on in our memories.

    RIP

    Winston
