Bidden Adieu

... joy and sorrow are inseparable. . . together they come and when one sits alone with you . . . remember that the other is asleep upon your bed.
-Kahlil Gibran-

Just went to Lampung last week to seeing through funeral of my uncle in law. About 7 hours drives from Jakarta across Sunda Strait to Sumatera island. The funeral ceremony goes on Bataknese traditional manner 3 days after he passed away. Families, homefolks and friends came to attend the burial service.
The late uncle was a doctor, father of 4 sons (either one also has a passed away 9 years ago), and a grandfather of 3 grandniece. Passed away in 65 years old because of heart disease.
We all families would like to say bidden in peace.
