JONATHAN CHRISTOPHER KENDALL (1962-2013)
With the greatest of sorrow I, +su ann lim
, have to inform you that Jonathan Christopher Kendall, my fiancé and love of my life, died suddenly last night on 15 June 2013. Despite the incredible efforts of our friends +Suzanne Jacob +Gaynal Brierley
, paramedics and ambulance personnel he could not be revived.
Jonathan lived as he believed, telling it like it is, with wit and humour, enjoying life to the hilt, with honour, directness and compassion. I was incredibly blessed to be the recipient of his immense love, and as each other's beloved, to share unbelievable happiness for too short a time. Jonathan, I LOVE YOU with all my heart and miss you desperately.
One of the favourite activities in his life was to engage with all you here on Google Plus. He thrived on the intellectual challenges, soaked up a vast amount of emerging knowledge, sparred with the best, and indulged in posts/streams/hangouts also for fun. Thank you all for your part in making his life more meaningful and worthwhile.
Jonathan would be pleased if we spent a little time reflecting together the words of Krishnamurti used to introduce his profile:
*"You must understand the whole of life, not just one little part of it. That is why you must read, that is why you must look at the skies, that is why you must sing and dance, and write poems and suffer and understand, for all that is life."
-- Jiddu Krishnamurti*
