“You can see it’s now congested. In front there (points to the shop front), the pedestrian walkway was removed for road works.
We both like this pork noodles, though my wife stopped eating this noodle since she turned pescatarian.
My wife, Evelyn, is no longer here with me. And I don’t have my wife for company for breakfast, lunch, dinner and the many times for all the things we share together. She was a victim of a hit-and-run accident.
There are moments I wish, and feel like she’s just gone on a long trip… I wished that she can be back soon.
It’s her birthday next month and I really don’t know how to cope on her birthday.
I cry every time I think of her and what I would do without her… I miss her smiles, her laughter, her grins, cheekiness….
I miss having her around the house. Shalom & Shiloh misses her. I miss our trips… the short drives, long drives, impromptu journeys… We spent every moment together and I always drove her to the places she needed to go…
My family misses her a lot, my nephews loves her chew-ma, I know that. I know her parents misses her a lot. I kept her mobile phone. The other day there was a missed call from her parents to her phone. I think they were hoping Evelyn would answer.
I also plan to spend time with them on Evelyn’s birthday on 13 April.” – Dennis
