My cousin's husband passed away on Friday afternoon. (7th December 2007) . It was not easy for me as my cousin's mum(my 3rd aunt , my dad's elder sister) is quite close to my family.
My 3rd aunt is one whom my mum used to talked to.She also was there for my mum's emotional support. She is close to me as I used to remember hanging out at her house when I was young.
My cousin's husband was a man full of compassion. He was a selfless man helping out whoever in need. He talked to people in soft voices , he used to help in whatever way he can.Stories of him helping with his own brother is even a great story to tell.
My 3rd aunt's husband passed away not long ago in July. She has got osteoporosis(*spelling check) and needs injection for her bone to strengthen. Seeing her insisting to see her son in law for the last time in the funeral made me felt a lot for her. After the funeral she has got great pain at her back.
I am not a writer so I do not know how to write this out to express the feeling I have this weekend.
It is also not an easy weekend for the rest of my 3rd aunt family as well. I always pray for my relatives who are suffering in health. The prayers have been answered in certain way. That's the best I can do and we have to accept everything that is happening around us.
3Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; 4perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.
