    This verse says it better than I could…

    They say there is a reason,
    “They say that time will heal,
    But neither time nor reason,
    Will change the way we feel.
    For no-one knows the heartache,
    That lies behind our smiles,
    No-one knows how many times,
    We have broken down and cried.
    Gone from home that smiling face,
    Those cheerful, happy ways,
    The heart that won so many friends,
    In bygone, Happy days.
    We want to tell you something,
    So there won’t be any doubt,
    You’re so wonderful to think of,
    But so hard to be without.
    We cannot bring the old days back.
    When we were all together,
    The family chain is broken now,
    But memories live forever.”

  • To the best person I’ve met,
    I’ll cherish the memories of you all my live. You are and will be alive in all of us you cared for, when any of those thoughts are recollected over and over. I love you my friend

  • My condolences to the O’Brien family.
    I had the pleasure of working with Damo at Intel for the past 12 years or so.
    For the past 4 years or so, my cube was right across the aisle from his. We talked regularly. It was great to be able to have random conversations with Damo about all kinds of topics.
    We went to lunches here and there and had regular walks around the Intel campus.
    He was a great friend. He will truly be missed.

  • So shocked and saddened to hear of Damo’s untimely passing. He was a real gent and always the first person to come say Hi and welcome me on my visits to Chandler. We enjoyed some nice green pints on an extended St. Patrick’s lunch on my last visit 🙂 Sincere condolences to Damo’s wife, kids and wider family at this difficult time. May he RIP.
