Sad days, bitter days…..un-consolable .
That night dad called me at midnight past 10. He said “Angay is no more”. She left this bitterly unfair world of miseries to some place better. But then she left us behind. I sighed deeply but emotions ran high and fast. Tears fell down, I was crying like a beaten child; helpless and crestfallen. This life event was something anew in my life. I had experienced births, attended births at maternity units, attended the birth of dear daughter few months ago and more so I had seen deaths. But this event was a death of someone so close to my heart, to my soul.
She was a lady of elegance and caring heart. Her dedication for care and commitment to her life was unmatchable. If it wasn’t for her I wouldn’t have known much about life that I know right now. The struggles, the losses and the values of hard work for one’s living are the lesson she taught in numerous ways possible in everyday of our stay together.
I cried celebrating your life. A life that I will always look up to with gratitude.
You have been so much to us and your life’s dedication to our family will be fondly cherished. This life has been a great gift to us because we had you. I remember that you had cared for us everyday of your life. Your concerns were deep and vast. It can’t be just measured, it has to remembered and prayed for.
As you enter your next life of bliss, our sincere prayers and unfathomable love will always remain for you.
I write to you today lest you don’t forget us. Sometimes I miss you so much. Please forgive me Angay.
With much love.
