To my friend X, who I will deeply missed. May your soul RIP

I was reminded by this bible verse the moment I received the passing of my friend's news last Friday noon. The words stuck in my mind so strong that I had to flip through my bible to understand it once more. Recalled such passage was discussed during last week’s life group, never once it crossed to my mind that it’s actually speaking to me on the coming days. 

Everything that reminds of him got us teary. I got a good, long cry yesterday. We miss you my friend. All this came so sudden and it’s hard for us to digest. We all thought you can make it through your sickness. You said you missed hanging out with us, you craved for KFC and durian, and we still have many things want to share with you. We looking forward to the day where you recover and / or this shit corona be gone so we can gather again to have some laughs, teasing or sharing moments like what we always used to do over our usual hangout place. 

But you didn't make it through at the end. 

So many questions running through our mind, but none of them can be answered just because you are no longer in this world. We mourn, sob, cry but nothing can change for the fact that you are gone. If only we can turn back the time, if only we knew this could happen and do even more. Did we gave you strength? Did we make you smile on your last moment? I hope we did. 

Despite covid prevented us from saying one last goodbye to you (enhance lockdown in KL/SEL so no funeral can be held), we are so glad to heard that your body had safely arrived at the hands of your family in your hometown. At least, it gave us a proper closure (virtually) to heard that all is well. You may have gone now but the memories you have given to us will be treasured forever.

Just like what the Ecclesiastes 7 says, the day of death is better than the day of birth and death is destiny of everyone, a fact that we as living being should take this to heart. We both maybe sharing different faiths but knowing that you are now at a better place which free from pain and suffering gave us comfort. It's just a matter of time to get used of everything when you are no longer with us. 

Goodbye my friend. Words can't describe how devastated that you are gone, but I believe God decided to take you away for His very good reason. Thank you for all the wonderful memories you have given to us. Thank you for being such a supportive friend to stick with me through ups and downs for the past 3.5 years. I'm thankful that we met at such unusual path and being able to share lifes and dreams together with the gang. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for everything you did & I will deeply missed you. 

May your soul rest in peace.
