This is definitely the toughest entry to write. I’ve got no idea where to start this entry.
In summary, my Dad passed away suddenly during his holiday trip. It’s very hard to believe it because he was perfectly okay on the very day before heart attack strike suddenly. No last words nothing… Everything was too sudden.
The last time I saw him was on my birthday (1 week before he left us) over family dinner.
It was difficult for my family and I to accept the fact that he left us so suddenly.
My siblings and I went through 8 nights of minimal sleep, handled paperwork with various embassies and etc, claimed dad’s body back, set up funeral wake and much more to ensure that everything falls in place during the wake. All of us were exhausted and at the same time… worried about our finance and many other factors.
As the eldest at home, dad came over to Singapore at the age of 13 to work and support his family. He started off with nothing, took up 2-3 jobs a day… he was a very thrifty man, always save $$$ on himself. 50 years of handwork for his family without any complain.
To be honest, I didn’t spend much time with family because I’m always not home, busy with studies, working and etc.
There are so many things that I wanna do for him and say to him, it’s a pity that I didn’t get to deliver them.
I feel really bad. I’m sorry dad.
We wish that we have more time with him so repay everything he has gave us.
My heart aches whenever i think of him, he will always be the man i love and respect. Its very painful to lose the one who loves us unconditionally.
Papa, it has been a month, we hope you that you are well.
We miss you very much.
We will take care of Ma, RIP
Please cherish the time you have with your love ones. You will never know how much time you have with them.
