Death in the family

In family on February 16, 2016 at 19:16

It is always a loss when someone in your family departs from this world.

It makes you think about if you have seen what you really like before it is too late.

In a quiet moment, I sat down and gave my thoughts.

Do I miss to see something?

Yes, of course I would like to see grandchildren being born before it is too late.

As for places on the earth, there is nothing more for me to see. I have been to Germany once. I do not need to see anything else abroad. For me Denmark is the world. It has everything I want to see.

It was my cousin who checked out. According to his wife and children, he also got a full life to live before he passed away. 39 he became. It was cancer, which claimed him. I visited him a couple of months ago in Ringsted where he lived. It is a small cold town in the center of Sealand. Difficult to drive to. You have to pass Fyen, which is just something you have to get over with.

He was a peace with himself. Looking back at what he considered a full life. His only regret was that he did not get to see his kids grow into adults and of course – no grandchildren. He had known that there was nothing to do for some while and they prepared by moving into something smaller which was one of the reasons I were over there as I helped carrying stuff to their new place.

Besides the issue with the children and possible grandchildren, he did not mind checking out now because he was a highly specialized Navision XAL person, which was a program Navision no longer sells. From being a specialist, he became an untrained worker, as it is too expensive to train an old man like him for a new system. 80,000 DKK was the price he had to put on the table to get the courses. It would not be fair for any firm considering the few years he had left in the workforce.

So he reached the end at age 39. At least he died as a satisfied and comforted man. We will now gather in the family so we can support the relatives left behind as much as possible. The world is changing and life kicks many people to the side roads these years where they are left behind because big companies move to new software and technologies without considering that the old things were something people lived off.

Even I fail to keep up pace.
