#2 Letters to heaven

I know I have promised for a blog post about my question in the previous blogpost but something happened recently and thus, I will postpone that to future post.

Next, I will be sending another letter to a dear one, who have just gone to heaven.


Dear Uncle Cheng,

Firstly, thank you for the memories in my 18 years of life.
Thank you for always chatting with us. I will miss those times when we talked about education or some experiences in our lives.
I will also miss the times when I shared with you about my volunteering experiences.
Thank you for the jokes and pranks you always play on us since we are young.

I remembered how you used to shout my name from behind and gave a smile.
I remembered how you made a fool out of us when you pulled the loud trigger that scared all of us when we entered the house.
And for the second time, I had myself prepared before you could press the trigger. That moment was pretty much hilarious. :’)
I also remembered when we are playing games, you love to cover our eyes and asked us to guess who you are.

These few days were tough for all of us.
Our feelings cannot even be expressed by words.
These days were unbelievable and everything felt so unreal. Perhaps it was too sudden for all to accept.
I lost a person to chat with, a person to read and give comments about my blog and articles and an awesome person in my life.

Yesterday, the last day of the funeral, it rained heavily, as if the sky was soaking with our tears. That emptiness in our heart was made even more obvious.

Rest in peace, dear uncle.
Thank you for being a great uncle all along.
Thank you for all the great memories you left behind. 

It was blessed to have you as my uncle.

We will miss you.
