In Loving Memory Of...

...Zewt's mom who passed on a few hours ago.
With deepest sympathies, Zewt...
Picture nicked from here.

Yesterday, his mom fainted, was sent to the hospital, doc confirmed it was stroke. She was put on the machine, having 2-3 days "left". And he wrote, "Ya’ know, so many times my mom said we took her for granted, and we never appreciate her, and that when the day comes when we want to take her out and make her happy, she might be gone. She was right. And it will be the biggest regret of my life."

How often do we take our loved ones for granted? Only you will know the answer... Just a reminder to Myself and whoever needed...

A few of us were lucky enough to have met Zewt (for just a brief moment) during the Together Gather Bloggers' Party 2007. Eventhough we do not really know him that well, but reading what went through his mind yesterday was really... really heart wrenching... and he just wrote this, "Life has indeed changed. As I walked around my house, I can finally see the gigantic effort of hers to put the whole house in order. From all the cleaning she has done… to the little decorations here and there. I realised my mom is a very artistic person."

Really can sob reading those two entries! And I just had to blog about it. Yesterday was like a day of "bad news". Kat twittered that her friend's husband died in a car accident. And then Will posted about his friend who met with a fatal accident. Next, was Zewt's mom. This is like too much for a day...

And Life goes on...

I hope there's a beautiful garden in heaven...

Deepest condolences to zewt.

I know well of the grief of losing a mother, the unconditional love lost forever, the dizziness..

angel said...

Dear kyh,...
Sometimes, in the course of our hectic lives, we fail to remember to appreciate the people closest to us... It's not something that we want to do but...... so, must constantly be aware to remind ourselves, hor?

This is a stage everyone will have to go thru..

Just keep in mind not to let regret get back at you when its too late..

Dear zewt,...
No, thank YOU for sharing and reminding us of the way we treat our loved ones... we can only offer our thoughts & words but you have to go through it with your loved ones... and I'm very sure Momma Zewt will rest in peace... take care, yeah? Hey, how's dad taking it? Hope he's as strong as you...

Daily durian? It's either someone hacked his blog or he deleted it... but I have a feeling it's the latter...

You know, very often blogs are not really only blogs... they can affect our lives too... *revelation* :)
