Saw one of my neighbour's house setting up a canopy at their house and I was just thinking... oh another function going on... but on a weekday? Anyway I just let the thought go by.
Later in the afternoon, I saw a Nirvana truck parked just outside the house. Then it occured to me, oh shit, it's a funeral, someone passed away :-(
Apparently, it's a man named Ronald whom I've said hi and bye to for several occasions. I never knew his name till that day :-( He was also a famous artist, according to his friends who came to the funeral.
I always see him dressed nicely in a shirt and pants, and instead of driving, he will take a walk to the shops, very nice man, humble and quiet.
Life is so short and fragile, he actually had chest pains that afternoon, went to GP and doc said he had a mild heart attack. So he drove to UH emergency to quickly seek help. At this juncture, you would also wonder why drive himself right??? I was thinking the same too. When he reached there, he had another heart attack and passed away there :-(
Just the thought of him driving himself alone in discomfort is enough to make me all teary eyed and distraught! Why didn't he call anyone for help??? Or maybe he did? Time wasn't on his side?
Anyway, although I didn't get to know you Uncle Ronald, I pray for your soul to rest in peace and may God bless you always.
Always treasure your loved ones and tell them you love them... life is short and fragile!
