There is a somber air across the company at the moment, particularly offshore on the respective platforms.
 
It all started 3 weeks ago when one of the lads died while on holiday with his family. He was 51. He was on my shift in for a couple of years (2012/2013) and had also worked with him previously.
 
Yesterday afternoon it was announced that another one of the lads again died while on holiday, he was away with a few of the other lads (not sure of his exact age, but think mid 50's).
 
Yesterday evening it was announced that another colleague had died at home, he was 47. I had worked with him for 20+ years (basically since I started) and again he was on my shift for many years when I went through my technician period, and then I was also his supervisor for a while, and on to be his manager (he was a supervisor by this time). In the early years before having kids, we also spent many a day in the pub and generally just being loons in the way you would imagine young guys with too much money and too much time off would do.
 
So to Dave, Derek and Ade, we are thinking of you....... Cry | :((
