We had a bad news. My father was calling me in the early morning while I slept. He called with the news that my cousin Shinta died. I have known that she was sick a month ago which I still have not briefly information about what kind of sickness she had.All I know was, for some months ago, she just lied in her bed. They lived far away from us,still in our big family area, but the area where my aunt live is difficult to reach( Giriwawo village). It is up on the hill. I have not yet reached the area, but my mother & father went there before, yupp fortunately, my father they visited her once before she died. I was glad, when my mom said that they just visited my aunt's family in Giriwawo village. I wish one day, I can come visit them. I always force my mother and father to go there for visiting my aunt. She is my father's sister, she has lived far away from town since married. We meet rarely.
When I was nine or ten, I don't really remember. I have known Shinta as a stubborn girl who didn't want to go to junior high school and live with my family. So if we met, we would talk about her attitude those days, so she just stay calm and smile. She helped us when my last brother born, she was calm and quietly while helping us. Then I heard that she married, I her nice husband recently with her children when we had San's church ceremonial in 2013. She gave birth to two nice girls. They still need a mother but God has another plan for the family. All I do is just pray for them and hope that my aunt's family will success and have a great future.
This is sad but also the end of the pain she had through. May God always bless the girls who just being a motherless child.
Good bye, ka Shinta, your shyly smile & good work will always in our hearts.
Someone's Life means we are born, have a life with its stories then died. Someone's Life.
