Ibu Toi Meninggal Dunia, 24 April 2010

Innalillahi wa inna illahi rajiun....dan sekali lagi hati merasa hiba dan sebak melihat wajah-wajah yang kehilangan ibunda tercinta. Kepayahan, kepedihan, kehilangan jelas kelihatan dari mata yang layu dan bergenangan air mata. Perjalanan sejauh 300km 4 hari yang lalu terlalu berbeza, dan matlamat cuma satu, moga sampai dengan selamat dan sempat melihat wajah ibunya buat kali yang terakhir. Almarhumah Hasnah menghempuskan nafas terakhir pada pagi 24 April 2010. Al Faatihah, semoga Allah mengampuni segala dosanya, menerima amal kebajikannya dan menempatkan Almarhumah di tempat yang terbaik disisiNYA. Tahziah untuk Toi sekeluarga.
