Hope

When he hugged me and said he had something to tell me, I knew whatever he would say was not very good.
The change was so sudden it caught me off guard. First he doesn't cook as he used to, anymore. One of our sons requested him to cook for our grandson's birthday but although he didn't say no, he told me to just buy from the restaurant that sells food-to-go. Which was so unusual considering that he didn't like store-bought dishes. He loved cooking for his sons and grandsons. Then I noticed he was starting to appear sluggish and would fall asleep at any time of the day. Every time I ask him if he's OK, he will just smile and assure me he is.
And then, two nights ago.
I didn't know what to say. I didn't know how to react. I simply hoped it won't be too soon.

Is this a friend of yours? a relative? have you written of him before?

I don't know the background .. but there i said one for him, whoever he is.

I know losses are sad though someone called them 'necessary.'
