A Memorial For You Dear Friend
The time has unfortunately come for me to write the words that should never have to be written. Your long, hard fight is over and despite your tremendous effort, you faced an unbeatable foe. You mean so much to all of us and we will all miss you greatly.
While my pain is true, I can know nothing of those who lost a mother, an auntie, a friend and a colleague. I send my deepest condolences and warmest thoughts to your parent, your siblings, your sons, your colleagues and your husband. Their pain is great only because great was their love for you.
May you rest in peace, my dear Asab.
ps-Today is Asab’s funeral and according to her mom during my last respect visit to her crib earlier on, her last word before she totally couldn’t speak at all during her lung complication treatment was ‘I miss my friends and I can’t wait to go back to work’.
