It began with 4 missed calls and 2 messaged from my best friend in Thailand.
I saw them a few minutes later and called her back right away to hear the shocking news.
“Jiw passed away”
A part of me wanted to yell at my friend for this fucking horrid joke, but another part of me knew that this was not something we’d ever joke about. Never.
I could not believe it.
Jiw went to school with me for 16 years, from 1st grade all the way through college. She’s one of my very best friends.
Last November, I went back home and got a chance to get together with her. She was happy with life, everything seemed to be going well for her.
And that was the last time I saw her.
Jiw, I will not say goodbye as I know we will meet again some day.
Rest in peace, my dear friend. I love you.
