we lost our grandpa last friday, mum informed over the phone. she also said that grandpa passed away in his sleep in the early friday morning which i was glad to hear. its the best way to pass away. painless.
i was not surprised as grandpa is over 80 years old and had been senile in the recent years. when i last visited him on the first day of lunar new year, we were not able to have a proper conversation. i wonder if he still remembered me. but he did grabbed my fingers for a few seconds before i pulled his hands away so that i could leave the room for the helper to help him get changed so that he is dressed up to meet his daughters and sons and grandchildren. still feel sad when i think of the scene.
the wake was a 5 days affair which ended yesterday. i am sure grandpa will rest in peace knowing that his descendants has him remembered and loved in our hearts..
