Al-Fatihah untuk mak, bapak. Passed away today, 5 July 1976. semoga roh mereka dicucuri rahmat dan ditempatkan di kalangan mereka yang soleh dan solehah.
Agaknya...how old wd they be if they were alive today? Mak was 46 and bapak was 50...kot, not sure. So they wd be 83 for mak and 87 for bapak. perhaps our lives wd also be different if they did not die on that fateful day. perhaps they wd come back 3 days after sending kak chik to ITM. Kak chik wd continue to study interior design, graduate and be working 3 or 4 years after that. how old wd she be? she wd be 55...wow! retirement age already... mak will continue with her business. she was a tailor and business was picking up then and was doing quite well. Bapak will continue to teach. he was a primary school teacher. i wd go to school the next day and all of us will go on with our lives...
but that did not happen. we lost mak and bapak and a few days after, we lost kak chik too.
the rest of us tried to survive without them. we survived in our own way. all of us are now with families. mak dan bapak ada 15 cucu sekarang tau.....and 1 cicit. Not bad kan?
"Alhamdulillah, kami semua ok, mak...bapak....kak chik. Jangan risau apa-apa. Kakak ada dan masih jaga kami walaupun dah tua macam ni...sama macam pesan mak masa mak nak pergi KL hantar Kak Chik hari tu....Biasala Mak, kakak tu garang juga kadang-kadang...apa orang kata...'tegas'. tapi kami tau dia sayang kami semua. walau susah macam mana pun, dia tetap ada dengan kami. Kami tak tau macam mana nak balas semua budi dia kat kami adik-adik...tapi kami cuba tak mau bagi dia marah. Mak, kakak masak mee goreng mamak paling best dalam dunia. Anak-anak pun suka. Dia dah ada cucu sekarang, ye la cicit mak le tu."
Semoga mak, bapak dan kak chik tenang di sana. Al-Fatihah.
