Losing A Sibling  

  

A couple of months ago, I was asked by Cary to share any memories of Kristine I may have.  What could I say?  I was shocked to say the least.  It was the moment that I actually learnt about Kris’ illness and death.  Death.  What an ugly word.  Uglier when we hear that someone we actually know is no longer with us.  Someone who left us so young.  

  

I remember Kris very well.  Her energy.  Her love of backpacks.  She always seemed to have earphones on blasting Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Nirvana or Guns and Roses.  Kris also had a strong bond to the Kellers, she was absolutely devoted to them.  

   

All of you know Cary and I were in the same year together, we share many memories of school dances, exams, hanging out during breaks and each other’s houses.  You know what else we share?  The pain of losing a sibling. 

  

I still fail to understand the how’s and why’s.  I just trust that God knows best.  We accept what’s happened and life goes on.  We will never forget my brother Mohammed or Kristen.  We love them dearly and will tell our children about their uncle and aunt.  How awesome they were and how much we miss them every day.

  • 從大學開始看這個部落格至今,也好久了,總是想到的時候就來溫習一下Kris的文字
    那讓坐井觀天的我,靈魂彷彿也飄到遠方。
    大二大年我車禍受傷,好幾個月的時間只能躺在床上,看著電腦遊覽世界
    很喜歡Kris用文字抒發她的感受,不羈且自由。
    如今我康復了,也從事一個可到處跑來跑去的工作,但仍然嚮往著Kris筆下的世界,卻只是一步一步邁出。
    從未在此隻字片語,但我想讓Kris的親友知道,Kris的一生雖短卻絢爛,鼓舞了我,也豐富了我的世界,衷心感謝。
    我想我會一直記得這個部落格,希望Kris的精神與文字長存。

  • Hi, I would like to read Kris' blog, if it hasn't been taken down by her family members. Would you happen to have a link to it? Thanks in advance.

  • I'm sorry for the silly question above... I just realized this is her website, in Chinese, though.
