10 Minutes

My friend's wife passed away last week. It was due to heart failure, her two heart arteries were congested.

It was a big surprise as she was fine and dandy the last I met them about a few weeks ago. So, on that night, as I rushed to meet him, I reflected how these moments show us how short and unpredictable life is at times.

As I met him, the first thing he said was " 10 minutes ". " Huh ? " " It took only 10 minutes for her t0 pass away " .. later he elaborated the incident .. suffice to say, it happened to quickly for him and his children to do anything much about it. A post mortem later revealed the problem, with her heart. It seems that the symptoms did not appear till it was too late.

He and his kids miss her terribly, but I am sure the pain will go away slowly ..... but, the thought of her will always be with them.

To my friend, Nasir + family.. my condolences and I hope you will be strong for your children. To Allahyarham Linda, may you rest in peace.

Al-Fatihah. Amin.

Always tell your loved ones, that you love them.
