ANOTHER year on, another sad news of the death of a friend, EC. She left on 31 August 2016 (I didn’t know about it till two weeks later today). She was only 49.
EC left 45 days after she first discovered her illness. She recorded her wish not to have a funeral, and was cremated. Her daughter posted a video of EC’s last days. Watching it was heart-wrenching and tearful; EC put up a brave front till the end.
EC was my sister’s classmate; while her sister was my classmate. To me, EC will forever be remembered fondly as the Emperor, when I was the Nightingale, back in 1979.
