That morning...2nd of August...I sat in my office, dumbfounded...after I received a call from a friend, Evelyn regarding Nancy's news. Sigh.....
Life is too short......
It had been 16 years. ONLY 16 years!!!!
Days when we started counting 123 and days when we started to learn about ABC.
To the times when we played "Jadi" and "Culup" at school.
Times when we walked all the way from school to Tun Jugah just to buy a cup of ice blended chocolate.
Times when we walked further to Star Cineplex for movie.
Times when we moved to Form 1 and got separated even further away.
Times when we got back closer during Form 4. Chit chat around when teacher isn't teaching during Moral lessons.
Times when we go tuition together.
Times when we sat for exam together.
Times when we left school for our future. Separated far far away doing our own stuff and going into different colleges and universities.
Times when I called all of you back for our first primary school reunion 7 months ago.
Times when I called up all of you again for our second reunion during Chinese New Year.
Times when I made another meet up for Chester's homecoming just last month. It was only 3 weeks ago.....
And now I had to say....my dear friend, may your soul rest in peace now that you're with God. I asked for His words to take good care of you. I asked for Him to take away your pain and give you full happiness. I asked for Him to keep you smiling. Your smile that we can never forget. Your laughter that rings around all the time.
Although you have left us, but we all know clearly that you will remain in our hearts forever. We will never forget you. Like I always said, "Once a friend, always a friend til the end".
This was the last picture captured of me and you. Rest in peace......
