Friday morning I was walking in city, emerging with frustrating thoughts about dealing with insurance, flood damage and tradies.
Saw a text telling me that Vanessa is gone.
I didn't even know Vanessa has Brain tumour. We haven't been keeping in touch since Uni time. However Taiwanese society in Sydney is small and we are around the same age so everyone knows everyone. I knew just two years ago she had another baby and I was secretly very happy for her cause I knew she wants another baby.
She left behind two young kids.
Suddenly all my frustration about tradies and house feels so stupid. I couldn't sleep that night. Tuesday I will go to Vanessa's funeral. And this is the first time I have ever been to a friend's funeral.
Have so much to say from my head but no words can express entirely what I want to say. Beyond sadness I realise life is indeed very short. Set your priority and fill it.
Love your smile Vanessa. There is no more tumour and no more suffering.
