No one was there. Mak was running around outside trying to sort things and figure things (Good Man) others were yet to know that you have gone. You were a star that left our universe too soon. This world is cruel and every year i learn more. I am sorry i wasn’t there when you needed. Yes you never asked for help but this world is a little like that even when help is asked no one comes forward. We see signs but we avoid them. I really hope you are in a better place. May you rest in peace. Will always remember you even if it’s on the day you left. Thankyou for touching my life ?? Thankyou for always making me realise and remind me the reality we live in. Love you loads.’

But before that i want u to know that there will be a piece of you in me always and i m grateful for that… whatever someone u become wherever u are in the world i m sending you love! You are my friend till the end…… Goodbye!!!.’
