......

Last sunday, I went to Temerloh to visit my aunty who is in the final stages of her terminal disease. I was sad to see her so emaciated and weakened by the disease. I haven't seen her in ages and it was awkward to be near a sick person. She couldn't speak much, but recognized both me and my sister. I was paralyzed, didn't know what to do, or say the right things to comfort her. How do you comfort a dying person?! It's as if I was feeling her imminent death...
All I can do is pray for her, for her to be placed among those blessed by God.....Amin.....

I am NEVER good at condolences, or when visiting sick people, I, Ms.Motormouth, for once do not have ANYTHING to say.I've been to funerals, deathbeds etc yet I still have NOTHING to say.Even if the person who passed away is my closest relative, I'd just be part of the mourners, preparing what I could for the jenazah, and stare around...LOST.But in my head, I've a lot of things to think about like what if it is ME in that kain kafan?Or my mother?Or my sister?Or my husband?

Death is a good reminder of how to live by, kan?

And after this comments, I'm still no good at funerals/visiting sick people.I hate to sound funny at such grim situations.Clown DNA said the hubby.

Take care, lebiuuuu{{{mwahs}}}

Yeah, me thinks better say nothing if you got nothing to say. You presence there is for moral support to the sick person and his/her family.
