I don't really know what to say, and I hope the internets won't warp the meaning of what I'm trying to get across, so here goes:
I'll be honest about it. I didn't know him. In fact, I only heard of that person today. I can hardly say his death is going to touch me in any noticeable way.
On the other hand, I can relate to how his relatives feel. Hell, I've lost a couple of loved ones myself.
I won't give you my condolences, because that would be just an awful lie. I'll just say that all of us will die eventually. There's not much we can do about it.
It's best to come to grips with that inevitability sooner than later, before it's too late. Say goodbye. But then, it's best to move on.
I'm still working on that part myself in regards to my grandparents, so it's more of a 'do as I say, not as I do' thing. I really hope they won't die for another couple of years.
I'm not exactly satisfied with how I worded this, but it'll have to do. I do wish all of his relatives the opportunity to properly say goodbye. That is what everyone deserves.
Aw hell. Not good with words, I am.
