My dearest Dennett,

My deepest condolences for your loss. I don’t know how to express this feeling I have after reading this. I just want to say thank you so much for opening up and sharing this story with me. It couldn’t have been easy but you shared and it really matters. A lot.

I was really shocked last year. I was thousands of miles away (I was in Qatar and my mother was in Indonesia) when I got a phone call telling me that my mother was in a coma from brain aneurysm. I went home the next day after the phone call. She was in coma for a little more than a week before she finally left.

I just… really I don’t know how to express it except to say that I never saw it coming. She was a really health-conscious person. But I guess when it’s the time, it’s the time and no one can escape.

I guess all we can do now is to make sure that every second, every minute, everyday counts.

Because as you said, we never know.

Thank you again for sharing your story. It really means a lot and I really appreciate it.
