When you marry someone, you marry their life and your partner’s family become your family much like your partner’s friends become your friends. Well, today we lost a very dear friend, a very kind, loyal, friendly, ever helpful friend that is loved by many. People always have nice and good things to say about Fik and he is well-respected in his field of work as well.
Our Unifi was down yesterday so we slept early. Around 1am thereabout, Azwaj’s phone starting ringing followed by numerous text messages. He finally got up and check his message and was stunned when we got word that Fik was in the ICU and was in critical situation. We knew Fik was ill but we also knew that he was seeking help and that his condition was improving. Anyway around 3am, Azwaj received word that we were able to visit him in the ICU anytime because of his condition. It seems he was already on life support and the outcome was grim. As such the doctor was opening up visiting hours for people to say their goodbyes. We immediately got ready and rushed to the hospital.
Fik was already in a coma. He was on all sorts of machines and tubes was everywhere. We prayed for him, stayed a while to talk to and consoled his mother and sister and left around dawn as there was nothing we can do anyway. Once Azwaj arrived home, he sms their mutual friends and updated them on Fik’s condition.
Around 8am, another friend called to let us know that Fik was no longer with us. It felt so unreal. There was simply no words to explained how both of us felt that precise moment.
Zul Fikhri bin Ismail was laid to rest in the Kajang Cemetery today, 17th May 2011. May he rest in peace, leaving behind all pain and suffering as he meets our maker. Al-Fatihah..
You will be missed dear friend…
I am going to miss your muffled words that I used to love to tease you about.
I’m gonna miss your laughter
I’m gonna miss your love for the kitties when you come over…
I’m gonna miss you..
Thank you for your comments.
