I didn't know Asim as well as I would have liked to but...well, I had always assumed I'd meet up with him some time in the future. My most recent contact with him was last year, in the months after I blogged about him, but I did try to keep up with everything he was up to.
I don't know what led to his decision. Indeed, we may never know. It's just incredibly sad that it had to come to this.
That's about all I can say right now.
