The beginning of saying "Good Bye"
Throughout the morning, a number of people came around to Revelations to either lend a hand, give their support, say their goodbye and wishing us a safe voyage. Axel Adelbert a friend and fellow sailor, Colin (the HAM radio guru) and his family .... after returning from testing our new screetcher, it was time to say goodbye to these people who all added and made a difference in our lives.
Then it was time to say goodbye to Brent! This was emotional, tears welling up and burning my eyes, with a lump in my throat - all rendering myself incapable of uttering the words so badly needed to tell and explain what a fantastic friend, great man and sailor, the purpose and meaning he gave to our lives ... what can I say!? You have all been there! You all you know what I'm talking about. It was gut wrenching to see him drive away. I know that this is life, that this is how things evolve and work - but fuckit, I cannot help but feel kind of cheated by all of this! But know that although we might not see you again for a long time, you will continue living on in our minds and hearts. We really love you man and will miss you dearly! We will be in touch!
