Been doing a fair bit of thinking the last few days and the best I can sum it up with is “It is better to have lived and died, than never to have lived at all”
Martin lived life to the full. Whenever he took something new on (Diving / Flying / Riding) - he did it properly. He knew the risks yet he opted to make the most of his time, irrespective. Riding was to cost him his life, but his life was lived to the full.
I was very shocked and sad to hear of the accident of Martin, I hadn’t known him long but it was a pleasure to have known him. He was a very nice geezer and will be missed by all.
My thoughts are with friends and family.
