She'll Be Missed



Dear Diary,

I was a bit hesitant to share this news here at first. But after a thorough reflection, I decided to pen it down here for my kids’ remembrance. I want them to remember their dear aunt.

A few days ago, my biras Iffah (Dan’s wife) succumbed to cancer. She had been fighting it for years. She underwent surgery and chemo but Allah loves her more. She left behind a husband (Dan, my brother in law) and a very young son. Ilyas, is not even 1 year old yet.

Though, I’ve only known Iffah for a short period of time (she and Dan got married in April 2011) but she’s one kind young lady. I blogged about their wedding. She warmed up to my children naturally. Zarra likes to practice her English with Iffah.

She’ll be missed dearly. May she rest in peace, Al-Fatihah.

Al fatihah to your biras and salam takziah to your BIL and his young son. Allah surely loves her more. Such a sad news when you hear a very young baby losing his Mum.

Lemongrass - Thanks. Every time I think about Ilyas, my eyes well up with tears. Tak tau la bila tengok dia nanti mcm mana (my PIL, BIL and Ilyas are still in Scottland - Iffah's parents' house).

Al-fatihah... Sedih mengenangkan nasib Ilyas yang masih kecil :(

Unaizah said...

Nur - Thanks. Sedih sangat bila kenangkan arwah Mummy dia sempat pesan Ilyas je harta yg dia ada yg dia tinggalkan utk Dan.
