I knew the man. Personally. It's so easy to view someone through the media glare, and make a judgement based on what the media desires you to see. Bestie was a wonderful, caring man. He had problems, very well documented, but no more so than thousands of people up and down the country. If he had continued on thirty more years it wouldn't have been long enough.

God bless you Bestie, you gave us a lot of good times. NI will miss you, our favourite son. Rest in peace.

Firstly, My condolences to you Doive having lost somebody you knew personally.

It's something that has drawn so many split opinions over the last 18 months or so. I see both sides, it's difficult to have sympathy with somebody who has flouted what he's been told and as some people would have put it 'wasted' a liver. But what people dont seem to realise is any continued drinking has had NOTHING to do with his death. when you have a transplant, your own bodies immune system detects it as a foreign body and attacks it. To combat this you have to spend the rest of your life taking immuno-suppressants, meaning that you have no immune system. As a result you are vulnerable to the slightest of infections, a common cold can become fatal. People who undergo organ transplants (with the exception of artificial ones) rarely last more than 5 years. Do bare in mind it was an infection of the lungs that killed george best.
I've drunk enough in the last 4 years to sink Aberystwyth, so I'm not going to preach about someone who liked a drink. Alcoholism is a disease, and not something you can just snap your fingers and ocme out of.
when all else fails, rivets, cable ties and bodge tape will see you through
