A Sad Loss

On Saturday morning, exactly on Naomi's one-month old anniversary day, I received a truly sad news from Indonesia. My sister broke the news that our family had just lost our uncle who had been battling cancer for the past year. We've lost the artistic, friendly and kind soul in the family, forever.

In loving memory: My husband receiving the horse painting from my uncle.
Farewell, Encek. Earth has lost a beautiful soul but Heaven has gained an angel. 

The last time I saw my uncle, he gave my husband and I three of the paintings that he painted when he felt healthier. I thought my husband and I could see him again when we go to Indonesia some time early next year because when we met him at his house during my last visit to Indonesia, he himself told us that he was getting better and may not need to go to China so often for his cancer treatments again.

Who knew that cancer didn't spare him any mercy and finally took him away last weekend? Gosh.. I still vividly remember his voice and smiles when he talked to us.... I am just saddened beyond belief to learn that he is no longer with us.

I hope that he is now given the best place in Heaven and may God provide his wife and children the mighty strength they need to cope with my uncle's demise.

RIP, Encek. You are sorely missed.
