It is with heavy heart that I write this for, our lovely friend - Gav Fern - was found on the weekend. A body was found on Saturday in Fife and police confirmed that it is Gav. I was informed on Sunday night but out of respect for all of his friends and family, didn't post anything. I've also been in a shock of sorts, I suppose.
Gav truly was loved and admired by all that knew him - he was bitingly funny, incredibly clever, and generous.
In May, Gav came to my 31st birthday party wearing a salmon pink sweater. I remember it clearly because I thought he looked quite dashing. Of course, he got some stick from some of the other guys but that's the thing about Gav: he was his own man; he liked what he liked.
Gav also had an incredible laugh that could fill a room; I loved his laugh and it's painfully sad that we'll never hear it again. He'll be loved and missed by all that knew him.
