Farewell, my love..

"I lost a part of my heart when you left us. It will forever be scarred and the wounds will not heal completely. It will get better but the emptiness will always be felt. I know it was difficult for you to leave your mommy and daddy behind but aunty will always be there to look out for them. They're the strongest people I know... they'll be the one that'll end up consoling me.. I am not surprised they passed that part of them to you, for you were the strongest and bravest little warrior ever..

You smiled through it all, everyday.. making us (and especially the doctors!) feel baffled as seeing how at ease you were. Sometimes I felt like the doctors misdiagnosed you because you looked and seemed so healthy. When you were in pain, you didn't want to look at anyone.. but you could never resist ending up playing peek-a-boo, didn't you?

Thank you Danial for staying around for your daddy's birthday on the 14th. You seemed so healthy and so full of life these past weeks that no one would think you'd go so soon.
I thank God that he didn't take away your health and you still had energy to smile and play and laugh every single day. Even yesterday.

Our heart is crying out for you Danial, but it would be selfish for us to hold you back when you could move on with your life to a place where there is no pain, no sorrow, no tears.

We will forever be missing you.. I love you with all my heart.. you were my baby too, you know..



So go be with Atuk, he'll be there to hold your hand.. and If you do decide to take a nap right there in heaven and you miss daddy's snoring, don't worry, Atuk has the exact same snore. I know you're doing great there but just know that we miss you so much. We love you...

Till we meet again one day.. "


Out of respect for privacy to my brother and sister-in-law, I have never discussed my nephew Danial's condition. I just asked for everyone's prayer for him to get well when he was hospitalized some time back in June.

However, God decided it was time for Danial to return to Him. Yesterday, September 15, my nephew, Danial passed away due to complications from leukemia. Just a day after he celebrated his daddy's birthday. He was almost 3 years old.

To all my dear friends out there, thank you for your prayers. My family are deeply grateful for all your kind words, thoughts and prayers.

*hugs* I know it's really hard for all of you guys... but like Buddy said... he's finally able to accompany and play with his grandpa. :)

Think of it that way and hopefully it will help make things at least a tiny bit better...

And at least he doesn't have to suffer anymore right?

May Danial rest in peace in the palms of his Creator...

It made me teary eye reading your post about your nephew bec I could relate the feeling of losing someone dear to us.
He is so young... my deepest condolence to you and your Bro-Sis in law.

Farah Deen September 19, 2008 at 6:21 PM  

Shemah,

Innalillah....

Reading this entry, I couldn't control the tears from flowing down my cheeks. I could almost feel the lost of Danial. Why him? He's still a baby, but Allah knows best and that's the only console I can say to your family and to myself.

I hope he is smiling happily in heaven, and he will be praying for his devoted and ever loving parents from Heaven.

He's still a baby, almost 3 years old, and I bet he must have been struggling with his disease long enough before he passed. I really felt sorry for his lost, and please pass my condolence to your family.

Danial darling, everyone love you here and everyone will be always thinking of you everyday. I bet your family are already missing your cheeky smiles and especially now, whenever I play peek-a-boo with my children, I will remember you.

Rest in peace sweetheart....
