Vale Stephen Peak, 1972-2006
By jmcp on Jul 03, 2006
We'd been in the same tute group and house throughout highschool, and while we weren't close, I did (and do) regard him as somebody who I could trust my life to.
The cause of death --- after an autopsy --- is apparently unknown. That's more than a little disturbing for me since we were very close in age (< 6 months iirc).
I saw his Dublin mate today at the service, he'd flown over here to say a eulogy..... quite an effort indeed, especially since Des had found Stephen in the morning. (Des --- thankyou).
I caught up with a few people who had also been at school with him, and it was good to see them. It was also good to see Stephen's older brother and his parents, to let them know (show them?) that they weren't alone.
Not that I could possibly have any concept of what it's like to bury a child or brother.
I'm still rattled.
