Goodbye Daisy

This is my friend Daisy. She was suppose to turn 37 in December. She is my kumare, her eldest (now in grade 3 – i think) is my godson. She has 3 boys all together. Youngest is just a year and a bit old. Her husband sent me an alarming text message the other day that Daisy was taken by the Lord due to multiple organ failure from Dengue fever. What a shock. I called him and did not know what to say. I just listened. I guess, it helps him to be able to talk about the event/tragedy.

I am very sad. I wish I can be there to comfort her loved ones, my “inaanak” especially. But i guess, I am better off to remember her beautiful lively face.

I write about this to ask for your prayers for her soul and for those she has left behind.

Death is indeed a thief in the night. We never know when it will come unexpectedly. It is inevitable. To some it just comes too early in life. But I guess it is not how long we lived, it is how we lived our life.



  1. My condolences to you ate… May God strengthen her family and give peace to her soul.

  2. my prayers to your dear friend and her family….chin up, Leah, i’m almost certain she’s in a better place right now.

  3. Tsk! kakagulat naman ang news na yan, di ba siya yung workmate mo sa computer school dati? kawawa naman yung family niya, she’s too young to die.

  4. really it is…we pray too for the family she leaves behind…

    we were both victims of dengue fever more than 7 years ago and were lucky to survive it…i hope and pray that this deadly virus will not take away more lives, especially the mothers from whom the rest of the family depends on….

  5. I’m very sorry to hear about your friend… she seems so young too… life can be unfair sometimes….
    My sincerest condolences to her family

  8. dear leah;
    i don’t know what to say about that as I have same problem.i can offer my condolences to you and your friend’s family and may god bless her soul and help these kids left behind without mother.My cousin and best friend since childhood passed away last sunday from a brain cancer.he was 41 and had 3 kids .the eldest is11yrs.he struggled 3 yrs withthat disease but finally was brain dead for the last 3 months and never woke up is so tragic and alarming that these days very young people die from cancer.But what can we say God created us and God can take us back and so life goes on.

    she still have the “hope”,Jesus did it to Lazarus, in God’s time, she will be back to her family, no sickness, no pain no death,no crying, anymore.

  10. Thank you all for your comments and prayers. They are comforting.
