It was 11 years ago; 11 years ago when I first gave condolence flowers to a friend. My friend was just 13 years old and she was lying in the coffin while I stood there, not wanting to believe what was before me.
Till this day, I still hold vivid memories of Daisy who passed away back in 2009. I was 13 then, and as a young teenager, my mind just could not comprehend what had just happened. I had pontang (pretended to be sick to miss school) school that day, when about 2.30pm after school hours I received a phone call from a school mate I was never really close to. It was odd. The moment I picked up the call, all I could hear was my friend crying as she struggled to tell me that Daisy had died. “What do you mean Daisy died?”, I asked, simply completely confounded. She just kept repeating, through her tears, that Daisy had died and that I should come to school now. As I lived just opposite the school, I ran as fast as I could and reached pretty soon. It was then that the school had gathered all students in our cohort to announce the death of my dear friend, Daisy. I was extremely shocked, and at the same overwhelmed by this sense of unbearable heaviness. There were so many words unspoken, there were so many regrets that I had.

This Sunday 17 June 2012 is Father’s Day. Being a Dad myself, father is often the forgotten ‘lot’, in some quiet small way, father’s do want to feel important too and what’s most important to Dads today is knowing that their children are still thinking of them. Yes, it is the thought that matters most. What better way to remind Dad that you are still thinking of him by sending him something this father’s day.
