The Way He Was

October 20, 2008 at 11:27 am 4 comments

I am glad i didn’t postpone the visit last weekend, as I did the previous week. Because this morning, just 2 days after the visit, Mom told me he passed away peacefully.

Remember I wrote about Dad’s old friend who had the patience almost like a saint? Well to me at least. Who always managed to joke about his illness, while I would always wince in pain even for a small cut on my finger.

He’s the one.

Hubster said he learnt something new every time we pay him a visit. Patience was one of them.

And last 2 days, he had difficulty telling him wife something. He was very ill, can’t sit up, can’t speak, and was on the oxygen most of the time. After several attempts, the wife guessed,

Nak amek wudhu’?

And he nodded.

He puts me (and maybe most of us) to shame, really.
