(L-R): Gav, Paul, and Jamie

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.

That's very sad to hear. May he rest in peace. And hope you and all his family and friends overcome the sorrow soon.
