That was probably one of the sadest days of my life. 24th August 2006, hearts were torn and tears aflowing. Thoughts were revolving with tears and laughters but the only sign were welling of the conjuctiva with clear flow stream of tears down those bubbly cheeks of ours. After 34 years together, now she leaves us with her family to what is hopefully greener pastures. I was already missing that cheeky naughty smile of a 5 year old girl called Sara my niece and that cheerful kind hearted boy called Suraj, my nephew, my godson. Oh how will I miss them. A significant part of me was missing.
I wonder how my dad would be feeling! Still holding his feelings strongly despite after having a bypass done. Fathers! Always the macho ones. Must have felt that 1/3 of his life is empty with her migrating to Australia. It has been her dream to migrate to Australia, and now she has done it. I am happy for her. And on the brighter side, maybe one day I can go diving there. She has played her role well as the eldest though occasionally i did not think so, especially during my younger days. I suppose everybody has a good and bad side but for her the bad side was humourous and the good side was heart-felt in such anybody who got to know her would have bled thru their memories with her on that day she left to the land Down Under.
