In Memoriam – Mum’s Sixth Death Anniversary

Six years. I think I need to move on now, Ma. I know this is what you would want me to do. I am not going to mourn for you anymore. I am going to celebrate life instead – celebrate the life that you had given me. Yes, that is how I will honour the memory of you. I want to have happy thoughts whenever I think of you. This I will do. Six years on, I think I have learnt a little more about death and life, and why we should celebrate life instead of mourning death. Rest in peace Ma. Till we meet again.

  1. Hi Koko,

    It was through your memory of your mum that we met, remember? Remember how I told you you made me cry? Although I never met her, I harbour a soft spot for her. So here’s to her memory. Let us celebrate life in memory of those who taught us to live.
