Ashebubu, life is just so unfair! It is so hard to believe you are gone, it is so hard to use past tense for you and so so hard to know for sure that I will not see your beautiful smile again. You were such an Angel, a true example of selflesness and a good friend indeed!
Just like a dear person told me this night, my consolatión should be that you are no more in pain, no more suffering, you are now resting…
I’ll be missing you
