I lost a friend yesterday. He passed away peacefully in the early hours of Friday, 7th September in Terengganu in the presence of family.
I have to say he was not my best friend. Nor was he a very close friend. But he certainly was a good friend. We work in the same company and he mainly manages the Administration of our division. It’s one of those friendships which you tend to take for granted, not because you don’t care but really because your paths don’t always cross. A recent event in our company had us working closely together to meet the dateline and that was when I really got to know him. A passionate, friendly, patient person with an ever ready smile in the face of adversity. That’s the best way I can think of to describe him.
He passed away at an age where life has only started to begin. Where most of us usually think of our careers, relationships and the pleasures of life. Leaving our mortal coil in our early 30’s is not something most of us give much thought to. It’s too early. The more I think about it, it’s clear our mortality is such a fragile thing. Life seems so short and unpredictable.
Mazariwan, our thoughts and prayers are with you. You will be sorely missed.
