"Tokmek tadok doh… baru meninggal sat ni". I received the sms that morning and honestly I didn’t know how to react. It is my first death as an adult. There was no sadness rushing to my heart as we see in the movie, but it was just a blankness of feeling. I just felt that I need to look at her pictures again.

Opening up my brother’s album, I saw her standing beside my brother’s wedding bed, in the most elegance way of people at her age, filled with modesty in her smile and a lifetime of memories in her eyes.

The thought that I would never see her again brought up tears in my eyes.

Before I go anywhere far from her, she always said that she don’t know whether she could see me again or not . And I always said, of course you could. It has always been true for years.

But not this time.

I will always remember you in my doa. May Allah bless you forever.

    My first death as an adult was my grandfather. I could not attend his funeral as I was far away from my town for college. He was a very great person to me…I always remember how he carried me to arround his house and singing his favorite song everytime I visited him…Left by our beloved is always a sadness, but I believe that they go to a better place.
