Writing this post made me think of 2 years ago, when we first met in 1T5. I still remembered that you were a nice guy back then. Helpful, hardworking, funny, adorable, out-going and energetic
young man. Speaking of energetic, you were the best football player ever. Still remembered the jersey, long socks, and football shoes that you wore during the inter-class competition after the year-end examination. Having you in our class team brought us nearer to victory. Even though we didn't win, but I know everyone had gave their best shot, including you.
When we were in Form 2, we were in different classes. Then i we kinda lost contact. However, your name is still well-known throughout the Form as you excel in Rubik's cube-solving. The Rubik's cube had been quite popular among the students at that time. And you held the best record in solving the Rubik's cube. You were great. And UNBEATABLE.
Form 3. We were in the same class again. Shockingly, you became a Maths pro. That took me by surprise, because your Maths weren't that good 2 years before. Well, that's good. You became the Maths reference book in class. Yeah, and i still remembered that you were doing Olympiad Maths during Mathematics period, and the Ms. Tharm had nothing to say about your pro-ness. Before every Math test, I would ask you about some of the topics that i was quite weak in, and you would explain it to me with much patience and clarity. I understood well and was relieved because I knew that whenever I had Math problems I had YOU to refer to. But now that you're gone, I lost another friend to solve my problems in my studies. Anyway, thank you for helping me every single time i turned to you.

Now that you were gone, i hope it's not too late to let you know, that
YOU ARE MY BEST FRIEND NO MATTER WHERE YOU ARE
YOU ARE A PART OF MY LIFE,THAT I WILL NEVER FORGET
YOU ARE ALWAYS A BROTHER IN OUR BIG FAMILY
WE LOVE YOU
I never wanted to say goodbye to you, my friend. I hate goodbyes, and I hate more to lose a good friend, a brother, a person that had played a very important role in my life. But now i had no choice, because you are already gone. Goodbyes are always hard to say, i guess.
So, my dear friend.....
GOODBYE for now. and DO come back and see us.
WE MISS YOU
best buddies forever
