June 4, 2014 – Gone but not forgotten… You were and will always be a beautiful soul Bryan Jacobson.
I just couldn’t get rid of you from my mind all afternoon, yesterday. I lost, enough loved ones; I got used to live without them. I know what’s the meaning of farewell, and that’s why I don’t like to say more goodbyes.
He was a celebrity event planner. He had organized the wedding of Robert De Niro’s son. It’s been four years, he is gone.
We were business related friends for around two years, till you decided to go. We were talking numerous times every week, work related.
How could I know you were not feeling well? That year, you were spent some time in Europe, and while in Europe too we were in contact. Then I went to Istanbul, I remember very well that we were talking while I was at the airport.
Since then, whenever you cross my mind; thinking that If I have any, tiny bit share in his last decision… I remember one of his friends saying after him that “sorry I didn’t reply your text one before day”, another one was saying “I canceled on him last minute to visit at home” etc… I was one of them, last 2 weeks I didn’t return his calls or texts. I was dealing with some other things at that time. Who could guess such a thing? I replied him 2 weeks later, in September 29th, 2010 with his bill… and he decided to go on October 4th, 2010.
I didn’t get response from him, but I didn’t mind at the beginning, I though that ‘it’s okay, he offended because I was late, or maybe he didn’t want to pay these days so why he didn’t back to me’… after sent bills I don’t disturb my clients, because I know when they are ready, they will be back. But a month later something poked me, not for the bill, but something. I looked for him and shocked and saddened by the news! He was jumped to his death from his posh high-rise in Mercer Street, Manhattan.
He was planning to open a new business in the Hamptons and that was the last thing we were working on with him.
Age 37 is risky as age 27 …so try to pass smoothly!
I see, some of your friends celebrating your 40th birthday… No you dumb, he will never be 40!! He was 37 when he left, and he will always stay at that young…
If me, he, she, they and/or any other person didn’t reply your emails, texts, respond your calls etc. this does not mean we don’t care about you… We care about you! But this is life, not giving us that permission always to act, how we would like to do perfectly… so you, who feel down, don’t decide to go anywhere sometime soon.
Stay strong and stay with us!
Yes this society sucks, financial system, health care system all sucks, yes this world is full of jerks but if we all gone so soon; it means, we left the world to that jerks… don’t do that, we don’t have to make millions of dollars to be happy, we don’t need fame or name to be happy… just supporting each other, if not today, but tomorrow is enough.
