Since last week I have been unrooted. I have no parents anymore. Last Monday my mother passed away peacefully surrounded by her loved-ones. Cancer forced her to succumb. She is pain-free now. Her passing changes everything in my family.
It is a strange feeling to be an orphan. This is a new situation I yet need to adjust to. Death is extremely palpable and final to those who are left behind. There will be no more calls or texts to mother just because or simply asking for recipes.
I won’t write an extensive tribute to her as the loss is so present and tangible. I am not even sure if I am able to dedicate a post to her. I just want to remember her just as how she was. She surely had lived her life to the max.
There she was, enjoying the sunset at Empuriabrava, Catalunia, Spain during our summer holiday in July last year.
Farewell mama. I will be seeing you again on the other side.
