Omar Ahmad - Dear friend, valued colleague and wonderful human being

Omar loved life with a passion so great that you couldn’t help but be swept up along with him.  No news about Omar was surprising - Climbing Mt Kilimanjaro?   Sure!    Another new start up? Of course.   Running for political office?  Makes sense!!   Speaking at Ted?  What took you so long?   New Eric Clapton guitar?   You paid how much?!

What was terribly unexpected, unnerving and tremendously sad is that I will never again have the pleasure of those surprises.  That loss hangs heavy on my heart.   Good bye old friend.
