Goodbye, Cousin...

Just less than two hours ago while I was just about to sit down after having breakfast, Suraya my cousin called.

"Kak Lin, Kak Maria meninggal pagi tadi pukul 7am."

Aku terkedu. Tak tahu nak react macam mana selain dari terjerit, "HAHHH????"

We call her 'Cik Ya' - my cousin who is, maybe, 3,4 years older than I am. Dia tak ada sakit apa-apa pun. Su terkejut, aku terkejut. Su pun kata tak tahu Cik Ya meninggal sebab apa, but jenazah masih di Seremban Columbia Hospital.

Lepas Su call, aku terus call Umi Ayah. Diorang pun terkejut.

My aunt and uncle called, my cousin Abg Zizi who is the president of the AR Family called. Abg Zizi kata he had just spoken to Cik Ya last night about the Family Day this June, and tahu yang Cik Ya has been having the flu since Monday. Itu aje.

Semua tengah terlalu terkejut. Agaknya macam Arwah Rustam pergi last month... too sudden to digest the fact.

Aku tengah tunggu Abang nak ambil aku. Had to skip my site meeting this morning.

Ish. Till now aku macam.... tak boleh swallow lah.

Baru aje dua tiga hari lepas aku teringat dia dengan Abg Mi the landscape-architect husband, sebab diorang ni antara orang kuat yang organize Family Day AR bulan Jun ni which will be held in Morib. Tiba-tiba dah tak da. She has 3 kids - the eldest girl who is 10, 11 years old, and 2 boys. The youngest maybe 7 years old.

Nanti-nanti aje lah aku post about the Parliament trip, ok? It just doesn't feel right at the mo.

In the mean time, do read Abg Rosaini's own experience here in abg Zul Noordin's blog.

Salam, Roti Kacang Merah. I'm one of arwah's classmates in school. I've done a posting on her passing yesterday itself and another one today. Please visit if you have the time and care to reminisce with me and my friends. We feel so horrible. Sad, lost, numb. But Allah knows better and loves her more. Al-Fatihah to yr arwah cousin Cik Ya and our sister, Maria Razak. InsyaAllah we are visiting her family soon. Thanks ya.
