Requescat i pacem

A co-worker I knew, albeit not that well, passed away this past weekend. He died doing what he loved more than most things in this world. His fellow hobbyists have posted a picture of him in his element as a form of memorial. More images of them cavorting are available.

I'm not sure how I feel about it; I didn't know Chema all that well, as I said. Worse, I was used to seeing him for a few days at a time in between long, random-length absences as he traveled (he had just moved to Boston, but still considered Mexico 'home' and was in Europe often for work). As a result, it sort of just feels like he's still 'away.' We're going to have a bit of a wake/gathering this week to try to create some closure. I think we'll go for a party atmosphere, and find some of his skydiving videos to play.
