Earlier today I told a couple of friends through text/SMS that I feel heavy in the inside. And later today, the feeling became heavier when we were told that our friend, known to us as Pak Eddy passed away because of liver failure.
I’ve known him quite briefly but in that short time, I’ll always remember Pak Eddy as a gentle, very kind, very friendly and thoughtful person. His face was so quiet and always flashes you a smile that you’ll be ashamed not to feel happy and not to smile back.
I have been holding back my tears since this morning. As I write this now, I couldn’t hold it any longer. His death is quite fast and I feel that something was taken away unjustly. He’s too young too die. He doesn’t deserve it. Naiinis ako. But we can’t bring back Pak Eddy anymore 😦
Right now, I feel blessed that somehow I was given a chance to know a person as good and kind as Pak Eddy even for just awhile. He’s an angel now, looking over at us. Smiling.
Thank you, Pak Eddy. We’ll miss you :_(
