A tearful note

Dear Team,

I learnt about the sad passing of our brother, friend and colleague today.

It is the most painful experience I have had, and I am still honestly too shocked to process it. I can only imagine what his family will be going through.

I am writing you because it is my way of grieving, and remembering him. Whichever way you prefer to grieve, please do.

This experience brings to the fore, the fragility of life, and our responsibility to make sure our actions and words stand true.

Every engagement I had with Matthew always ended with a reassuring statement from him. He lived beyond his years. Sometimes, like today, nothing makes sense. But I am honored to have known him, and I will keep his memory alive, always.

May his gentle soul rest in perfect peace, Amen.
