Bereft

Silenti etc mos usquequaque exsisto memor.
The dead will always be remembered.


My friend succumbed his life to illness today 3.30 AM. I have a huge, huge, huge hole in my life suddenly.

This morning I had two surreal shopping experiences. I was at a grocery store at 5 am to buy Basil (tulsi) to put on his mouth where his last breath came from. I also went shopping for a brand new suit for him to wear for his funeral tomorrow. He looks shrunken inside it already.

I'm so sorry Kiran. I lost one of my best friends to AIDS about ten years ago, and it hurt a lot. I still miss him too. I found this quote comforting: "Death is but a horizon, and a horizon is nothing but the limit of our sight."

Take care of yourself. You were a good friend to him.

He was a lucky man to have someone like you to care for him in his last days. He went in peace. "Prarabdhha" asta. And for you, it was an honor to be there. Take a deep breath. You have your loved ones around you. Every winter in followed by a spring. This time too....

my condolences...

Oh, thats sad. Very sad. :( A warm hug out to you. If he was in pain, then at least he's not anymore. I know its not a reasonable reason, but sometimes it helps to think that way.
