Sigh...

I just received news from a friend saying that Collin's grandma passed away today...
I've known Collin for a decade. We've been thru Ups and Downs. Happy, Sad, Angry, every emotion there is, we've gone thru it. But I'm glad to say that after all these years, we are now very good friends.
Anyway, that's not the point. I'm not the type who knows how to console a friend who's lost someone significant in his/her life. I don't know what are the words to say, how to make someone feel better... Do you know how to do it?
But what I know is, I need to be there for/with him...
*Liuuu...*
Did-You-Know that when I was a little girl, there was one point of time in my life where I was so afraid of Death that I'd spend many days and nights thinking/imagining how death is and I'd cry to myself when the thought of me dead came to mind... Sheesh...what was I thinking??

Maybe some things are better left unsaid, u thinks?

I can just imagine how the senario would be afterwards. I'll see him, give him a hug, ask him how he is... like as though I donno... and then... ??

Simple American said...

Just be there. Listen when he speaks. Talk when he wants to hear a human voice. Provide a shoulder when he needs to cry. And have a hug when he needs comfort.

Sorry to hear about Collin's grandma.

Take it easy. It'll all be ok.

ducky said...

death is always painful for those that are left behind. no amount of words can bring that smile back to their faces. only time & support from good friends will make this unhappy period bearable. god bless and good night.

Fantasy "Sticky" Flier said...

well....
you know in new orleans and someparts of the world they celebrate a death rather than mourn one.It meeans the person has gone on to a better place. Life is usually not fair. But it is the way it is.

Simple American said...

So why you liuliuliuliu (stay up all night) leh?

angel said...

Dear Flyboy...

Yeah... I think in Chinese culture, (not sure if it's practised here) if one died after the age of 100, it'd be a celebration instead of mourning.

*nod nod*

Life ain't fair... always...

Thanks for the note...

angel said...

vina said...

hi angel. like you, i'm also not good with consoling and condoling...but that does not make us less of a friend, does it? just being there and offering our shoulder and an ear to listen i think is more important than finding words to say.

angel said...

Dear winnliuliu...

Hoho...i liu lah... your liuday was on 18th May, betul tak?? :D

Aiya...u dun so shy lar... if u shy, u bring Liucas... u can hide behind Liucas... then, i won't see u loh... :P liuliuliu!!!

angel said...

Dear vina...

Hello hello... What a pleasant surprise! :)

Yeah, u are right... The other night, I could see that Collin was happy to see me. Well, he told me he was happy to see me bcos he didn't expect me to turn up.

I just wish I had a wand and can just take away the pain... *sigh*

But hey, thanks for sharing! :)
