047. Saying goodbye to a friend

Last Saturday, I received a text from a friend that Noel has succumbed to cancer. I was shocked since I thought he already won the battle a few years back. The first thought that came to mind was, oh no. not again. Last year, I lost 5 friends. I don't want to count deaths again this year. T_T

Today, we finally laid him to rest. You know what hurt me the most and made me cry the hardest during the funeral rites? His tear-stricken father said, "children bury their parents, not the other way around. I never imagined that I will bury my son today." It was the same thing my parents said when we buried my brother 15 years ago.

Noel and I had a lot of wonderful moments together which I will forever cherish until it's my time to die.

Rest in peace, Noel. I love you.

PS. Noel was my first boyfriend and my first love.
