Final Story of My Mother 媽媽最後的故事


這是我在復活節期間所發生的事:

20/3/2008 (聖周四)

爸爸媽媽從詩巫(家鄉)駕車到了三瑪拉漢(我念書的地方),為探望我外公外婆(在古晉)。

21/3/2008 (受難節)

爸爸媽媽與我約好在教堂參與受難節禮儀。

22/3/2008 (聖周六)

爸爸媽媽與我約好,和親戚一起吃午餐(肉骨茶)。

23/3/2008 (復活節)

爸爸媽媽要駕車回家,因為星期一開工,於是……

7.30am

與我在教堂見面,參與主日彌撒。

9點多

吃早餐。

11點多

到我住的地方拿些東西,便啟程。
因為一個人在家(住的地方),所以就玩電腦。

3點多

開始下雨。

5點多

我想爸爸媽媽應該到家了,就繼續等電話。
結果電話來了,是我不知道的電話號碼。
醫院打來,說我爸爸車禍重傷,叫我快到泗里街(詩巫與古晉之間的小鎮)。
我便問媽媽傷勢如何。
醫生跟我說抱歉……
於是我叫醫生幫忙通知哥哥(在詩巫)。
因為我交通不方便,便致電給舅舅(在古晉),叫他載我。
接著,我便哀號痛哭。
哥哥致電給我,告訴我說:“一定要幫阿爸祈禱,已經失去一個了,一定要救回一個,知道嗎?
我便傳送短訊給我所有認識的朋友(同一個教會的),要求他們為我父親祈禱。
姐姐也致電給我……

8點多

舅舅等人到我家載我。
於是我們便啟程。

9點多

哥哥便傳短訊給我,告訴我直接回詩巫。
於是我們便改變行程。訂翌日最早班機的機票。
我便去姨姨家過夜。

24/3/2008 (星期一)

到詩巫。

早上

哥哥載我去緊急病房探望爸爸。
當我到時,爸爸開始有點清醒。
於是,哥哥對爸爸說:“阿爸,要堅強,知道嗎?一定要度過這一關。
之後便回家。
辦理很多的事情。

11.00am

姐姐到詩巫。

7.30pm

很多教堂認識的朋友到我家為媽媽祈禱。

9點多

叔叔嬸嬸從吉隆坡來到我家。

25/3/2008 (星期二)

送殯。

凌晨4點多

啟程去泗里街。

凌晨6點多

蓋棺。啟程回詩巫。

8.00am

到了教堂,葬禮彌撒。
神父說了很多。然我落淚的就是:“本來,有一個人現在應該在這個葬禮彌撒。可惜他不能來。他現在在醫院緊急病房裡。

看到媽媽的親戚朋友同事,我不僅流淚。
彌撒完畢,便啟程去墓園。

10點左右

到達墓園,下葬。
媽媽的人生寫下了句號。她將自己的人生道理留給了自己的子女。

This is what was happened to me during the Easter season:

20/3/2008 (Holy Thursday)

7.30am

Then a incoming call, which the phone number I don’t know.
A call from hospital, tell me that my father has an accident, in a critical state, ask me to go to Sarikei (a small town between Sibu and Kuching) immediately.
Then I ask how is my mother.

The doctor say “sorry”…

Then I ask the doctor to inform my brother (in Sibu).

Because of transport problem, I call my uncle (in Kuching) to bring me.
Then, I cry loudly.

Brother call me and say, “You must pray for father, already lost one, we must save at least one, okay?
I then send SMS to all my friends (who are in the same church), ask them to pray for my father.
Then sister call me…

8.00pm plus

Uncle and others arrive my house to bring me.

Arrive at Sibu.

Morning

Brother bring me to see father in ICU.
When I arrived, father start feeling conscious a little bit.
Then brother say to father, “Father, must be tough, okay? Must pass this stage.
Then we go home.
Manage a lot of things.

The priest say a lot of things. Which touches me is, “Actually, there is a person should attend this funeral mass. Unfortunately, he cannot come. He is in the hospital ICU now.
I see my mother’s relatives, friends, colleagues, then I tear.

Mass is finished, we then go to the cemetery.

About 10.00am

Arrive at cemetery, buried.
Mother’s life is written with a full stop. She gives her principles of life for her own children.
