"The one with the lost of a dear friend..."

Today, I woke up with a deep, cold sigh.

I offer all dear friends and family of Veronieta Antau Stephen, my deepest condolences. May her soul rest in peace, and her sins forgiven for a better place among the heavens above.

She passed away yesterday evening, in an accident near Kundasang.

I've always known Vero as a kindred spirit, most kind and always so lively. She's touched so many of our hearts and carved smiles onto a lot of faces - I personally feel that, to lose someone as her, is to have lost a big part of your life.

I was totally overwhelmed by this morbid news when Jo told me about it; and I'm still coming into terms of dealing with it. But, in consolation - I'd like to very much believe that she's in a far better place now....and that what happened is because God loves her so much.

You can't replace someone, who in Fifah's words, as vibrant as Vero. She might no longer be with us, but all the memories that we've shared with her, will be with us, and in our prayers forever.

hi anonymous!

Vero was a good friend of mine back in UMS. I know, I'm still shocked as it is. We're going to really miss her, and there won't be one as cheerful as Vero to be replaced.

I hope her soul rests in peace.

Thanks for everyone's tear of endearment for our dear friend Vero. Against all the gloom and sadness of the tragedy, her departure reminds us that our lives are too short and we should cherish every breathing moment we still have in it.
