The sudden demise of Canadian ice hockey player Colby Cave came as a big blow to his team and his loved ones. The lively and talented player breathed his last on April 11, 2020, leaving all of us at a very young age of 25, suffering from brain bleeding.
The occasion reminds some lines from Mary Elizabeth Frye’s famous poem ‘Do not stand at my grave and weep’;
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
As said, it is not the number of years you live that matters, but what does, is what you do during your tenure. Colby has proved the saying by achieving more than his years in a brief period. He will continue to live with all of us through his prestigious achievements.
