Asterix went through a shitty situation with grace and style and I always imagined that if I got into a similar situation that I would want to be able to do things the same way.
He sold his share of the business he had to spend his remaining time with his wife and family and his innermost thoughts.

I am very sorry to hear of his passing. I am however great full for being able to see a glimpse of his vision via some of the pictures he posted. He managed to see some pretty awesome images of the heavens! If I had been able I would have greatfully spent my evenings star gazing with him. If you are a believer, perhaps you can visualized him wondering between those very stars now. Rest in peace my star gazing friend!
