A Week of Grieving

Last weekend was full of sad stories. Two of my friends’ mothers were passed away because of cancer.

Wempy is one of my best-est friend since kindy days. We went to the same schools and been in the same classes until high school. Then we chose our own paths to go for, but the friendship stays. Last Saturday, his mother passed away. He had been prepared himself to be ready for the lost, because he knew that his mom wouldn’t be able to bear the pain any longer. Then that sad day came… He was so strong! I was the one who cried for him. He loved his mother very much and he was the one who took care of her. After the funeral, he said, ‘Now, I don’t have a mother anymore’. I was so touched and so sad. So, I looked at my mom, and told him and my mom is his mom too…

Cen, is another friend of mine. She is my friend’s wife. She lost her mom on Monday (last week) and the funeral was done on Sunday. She is the only daughter in the family and she was so close to her mom. I can’t imagine the lost that she felt … She was crying when I hugged her!


I learned a great lesson … love someone that you have now with all your heart, efforts and life! Before they gone forever. They could be your parents, partners, children, relatives, grandparents, friends, neighbors … and many more. Whenever you have time to spare with them, just do it. Never count those precious times with money or your work. Those moments are too precious to be paid with any money …

So, love your loved ones … since you still have the time in your hands!

  1. And I know you’re shining down on me from heaven
    Like so many friends we’ve lost along the way
    And I know eventually we’ll be together
    One sweet day
    And all thatI know is I’ll wait patiently to see you in Heaven

    1. Yes, those people who had gone are the ones who will look after us…
      Well, let’s hold on to the brighter side of ‘death’ … it means that they have ended their suffer on earth and live happily with Jesus in Heaven =)
