What'd You Done, My Friend?
What had you been doing to YOURSELF, My Little Friend?

"Oh, nothing, I am fine. I am doing OK ..." you would had said so, as cheerfully as you'd always giving impression to people around you. Oh, but you're not doing OK, you had a heart-attack. Heart Attacked, my Little Friend, my dear Mav.

.

What had you been doing to yourself, My Friend?
My Little Friend.

(Although, you're the person called me your "Little Friend" but no longer, never ever I would have heard you call me the special title you owned, any more.)

.

Life is not fair; and, it is So Not Fair for Some.
Not Fair, my dear friend! Not fair at all.
Heart attaced and passed away at the age just a little over 60.

Right after you'd found another job, much closer to your place (and left me be in this sunk, distasteful job) that you don't need to get up before 4am to prepare yourself and took care of your sick mother, and to catch early bus for hours and hours' commute and then took train to come to work; again, went thru all the reversed way to get back home after a whole day's stressed work to get back home by, 8 or 9pm ... and took care of your mother for the night.

Day after days, you'd worked so hard, for so long ... you couldn't bear the sudden release of all the stress, of your mother's passed away; and, you followed in such a short time after.

.

For years, I have noticed you a sole caretaker of your aging and sick parents; how you'd survived from all the pain, all the hardship, all the difficulties ... Heart-attack, what had you been doing to yourself, My Friend?

You're the only person who kept telling me to be cautious at work, not to overdo myself, not to damage my health. Were you kidding me? Look what had you done to yourself?

.

My Friend, oh, my little friend.
I still need your advisory, always.
You're the Wind beneath my wings, remember?

前文參看: 寫一封關於友誼的信

.

Tonight, I made my last phone call to you.
No one answered the phone (unusually), so, I left this message on your voicemail, you don't need to call me back. It's not urgent but you know what I mean:

Hi, Mav:

I was told the news this morning. It's a shock. Every one who heard the news of yours was shocked. You didn't call me, how could you deliever this news of yours to me? No, of course you couldn't.

All I wanted to say is "what'd you done to yourself?"
You, the person who kept telling me to take care of myself.

I want you to stay at where you are and keep a spot for me, ok? We'll meet one day, and, I want you to tell me all the juicy gossip you'd loved to share with me as before.

Dog will meet you (he told me so, said he saw you but you're in stage of fitting yourself into such a new place of yours that you did not see him), he will approach you when you're ready; please pat him for me, ok? You know he loves you, dog knows who is good to love as I do.

Now, Take Good Care of Yourself, you listen to me. We will meet. Until then, my friend, my dearest Mav, my wind.

FLY, ...

Love
Forever

Mavis, My Dear Little Friend,

it is time, for you, for me, to let you go. I know you've had peace now. You've had your holy grail, you've earned it。

I missed you when I told Chuck that day, he said he missed you too. The words of "you'll be missed" had never been so meaningful to me. But, it is the time. Let me said this once more: Thank You Being My Friend, my Little Friend.

Yours Forever,

Passenger - Let Her Go

離離騷騷

濃秋漸入,您勤走戶外之餘最近讀了些什麼小說?寫點故事小品來分享。

微笑  微笑 

離離騷騷?!! 哈;正是秋葉枯黃離樹、離枝時分。滿山滿谷的楓紅,招喚~ ~

歷經數月的趕工,more, more, more、、、達進度已不是要求,超進度是正常,永遠地more, more, more ... 疲憊不堪,走路已是不可、不能的目標。

逼自己休假,正盤算著,密北從東四輪走到西的,悠閒的走它三、五天,好美阿、、、人算不如x算,閣樓天花板上好像有vicious animal進駐 (是準備過冬吧?) 不僅在天花板上跳tango,車庫也成了它的遊戲場、、、next few days的休假,沒有楓紅是"你死我活"的 Battle of Racoon Project。Sir Norton您知道,這vicious racoon不堵住,當它"愛"上本宅後,不但會誕生無數的小racoon(一點都不可愛),並且會介紹它所有的親朋好友,天天開它的里民大會、、、

好個racoon project。That's all, folks。
(這個小品,好嗎?  怒吼 )

A life well spent brings happy death

朋友的謝世,總會令我們溫柔顧念

好嗎?有段時間沒來探詢,這才讀到此篇傷逝文

想念的淚水滴不回逝去的生命,
所剩的只有回憶。

我與同事提及這些好友們,都只有Life is too short之感,
"somrthing is not worth for" something 可以是很多詞替置的, 
反省我給自己製造了多少這些things是我近日的課題,
還未能有結語。

除此,一切如常。
感謝。

It's me, it's mw ...

Hey, Mav:

It's me, again; I just want to tell you this news regarding B.B. you probably already sensed her landing with you, in the other world.

Bryan P. gathered us all  this morning to inform us B's passed away this morning, officially. Since you two had been communicated recently and you did mention your concern of B's rehab progress, I want to tell you her situation to you so that you and B may continue the acquantance there. Please give her our condolence and feeling to her, will you? Thanks.

I don't know how Carol will take this sad news, you know she and B are close friends. It's one stike after one another, WHY? What Is Going On?

I really wish you could help me to understand, like before.

The music below is to dedicate to you two, good friends,

Say Something ... I'm giving up on you

https://youtu.be/NFKMNtd6E2g

M, my little friend:

You came to see me; but, you probabaly forgot it is Saturday morning that you used to sleep thru the morning to make up your weekdays' lost sleeping hours, or you remember I am such a routine person that my body wakes up at its regular hour?

 I have done mission you wnated me to do for you, were you having more message to me? Did you come to tell me you like the music I played for you? You're Very Welcome, I know you'd like this "STAY" from Rihanna.

Friendship Forever,

Love

This is another hard-to-digest one just like the dog story. 

Inevitably, we will all end up going to be that way. 

"Sorrows are not the end of life, but an instrument of life."

I believe in eternity.

True, so true.

This is so touching NS!  You brought tears to my eyes. . .

Please continue to take good care of yourself as your friend Mav would've wanted you to.

I wrote down what jumpped in mind; it is inapproprite to say 'thk u' for such an occassion but I know what you want to say, I appreciate.

My friend, my only friend who was the only person I shared my phone number with, who I talked to of all my troubles and doubts, who is the only friend gave me support emotionally. There will have only silence on the other end of the line,  from now on.
