Was drowning in spreadsheets at work when I heard a buzz in my mobile. A message from a dear friend stating “It has been 5 years. Time goes by fast”.
And indeed it does. Five years ago, this same day, October 10th, around the time I got that message today, I was listening “She just passed away”.
I remember that day as a bad dream. The absence of news. The phone calls to everyone to try and find out what happened. The rush to the hospital when we finally knew where she was and the sad news upon our arrival. Then breaking the bad news to our friends. The next day friends coming from all over the country to be with you in your last moments on earth.
How was it possible? We had seen Mamma Mia just 4 days before. we were laughing and singing. We had so many plans. So many things to do together. And then… then you were gone. No more movies, no more laughter, no more singing, no more traveling.
You are still in my friends list, your number is still on my mobile, you’ll always be in my heart.
Five years have passed and it seems like yesterday.
You went for tea and never came back.
Miss you girl!
