What shall we say, how can we describe your sudden and untimely death, like a blow?

"To Halima, Adam, Naomi and Michael, we send love and appreciation for a life well lived. Robert was a generous, gracious friend, welcoming us to Nigeria and sharing his enthusiasm for sports with Peter over 20 yrs. There must be some spirited squash games being played in heaven right now. It matters not how a man dies, but how he lives;the act of dying is not of importance. He lived fully."
