‘If you can’t say something nice about someone, say nothing,’ his mother was fond of saying.
He had no idea his comments would be overheard, least of all by the people he cared about most.
He could look for excuses, say he was goaded, misled, trapped into voicing an opinion, but at the end of the day, the consequences were the same. Not only had he lost his best friend, but also his brother.
