A Tearful Farewell........!!!!!
25th May 2010 will go down in my book of memories as a day that I would never like to remember and yet like all things that you would like to forget and can't , this day will always be on my mind. A phone call was all that was needed to turn my otherwise normal routine day , topsy turvy. I was told my very close childhood friend, June was taken to the ICU. I rushed to the hospital and saw her on life support, struggling with life. Minutes turned to hours. I was told by the doctors all her vital organs were affected, the kidneys were the worst. Her body system was shutting down. Nothing could be done any more. She suffered from a rare connective tissue problem. They brought her home. I checked her pulse and blood pressure. I could be feel none. She was sinking and the same night June breadth her last. She left me standing there alone in front of her mother , children and relatives, asking me to tell them she was gone. "Not fair June for asking me to do this ....." I was talking to myself.Holding back my emotions and as professionally as I could, I told them.....She was no more.
I stand and watch as they lift her coffin for the last journey that she was going to make in this world till she is laid to rest. My parting gift to her was a Cross of Yellow Lilium flowers . May her soul rest in peace, I pray silently as my tears roll down . I have lost an elder sister....a friend....a neighbour forever.
