Just recently, I saw a very familiar face in my town’s newspaper’s obituary section. It was quite a shock for me to see her face since I never had imagined that her life would end so quickly. She was only in her mid-50’s. The obituary stated that no viewing will take place and in lieu of flowers, to donate to a charity in her memory. Her death was reported as sudden with no known given reason.
Since I never informed her family that I will be writing a blog about her, for privacy purposes, I’ll call her Rona in this blog.
I’m really at a loss for the exact words as to what to say but I guess, I’ll write from my heart instead.
Rona was a very funny,vivacious ,smart and kind lady who always sees the optimistic side of life. I used to work with her during my volunteer work in a downtown agency for the municipal government.
Having her as a working colleague was a treasure and made the whole volunteer experience quite enjoyable for me.
Life can be fleeting at times like in this case. It’s so surreal. It seemed like only yesterday that I was chatting with her and now today,she’s gone!
As I had always said time and time again, make the most of everyday ‘coz we don’t know when our life will exactly end.
She was also quite a tech whiz, always up -to-date with the latest technology news.
I’ll really miss her. Godspeed, Rona!
My thoughts and prayers go out to her family.
Au revoir, mon ami!
