Today during lunch, we got a phone call.
Mum's nanny passed away in hospital this afternoon.
My bowl of porridge suddenly turned bitter, upon hearing this news.
She was such a nice lady, who took care of my mum during her younger times.
Mum brought me along when i was a kid to visit her house.
And every time we are there, she would make milo, take out the biscuits and starting serving us.
However, due to a fall, few years back, she was being bed ridden and only survived on a tube, transferring milk through her mouth.
Few months back, Mum and i visited her again in the nursing home she was staying in.
As she was not able to talk, all she could do was stare at us. I am sure she still can recognize us, but she just could not talk.
Although we expected such things, but i did not want it to happen so soon.
Death is a debt we all must pay. ~Euripides
Only problem is : when?
Dear Nanny, Thank you for the great memories.
Please take care of yourself in the other world.
Dear Mum, Stay strong. *HUGS*
