In December my Embah pass away and yesterday received another sad phone call. My bibi’ called me up saying her husband “dah takde”. Paman passed away due to heart attack. It was certainly a shocking news to all of us. It was a very short phone call “hAnim, paman Sumari dah takde, bagitau bapak. kalau bapak balik tolong amiq annuar ek”. Her son is studying in Rembau , so if we all balik Pontian, to fetch the son on the way.
I feel really sorry for the family. Arwah’s eldest daughter (my cousin) is getting married in 2 weeks time! I really can’t imagine myself in such situation. While busy preparing for the wedding, her dad passed away. I’m sure it is very tough for the whole family.
Alfatihah to Paman Sumari
p/s: ye kami orang jawa. My dad is javanese. and i still feel it is such a waste i wasn’t thought the language. if not bile maid bergossip bagai on the phone kan senang bleh paham ape their conversation. if ade plan nak lari ke..ha bleh lah tau. my dad and siblings still speaks 100% javanese bile kat kampung.
