for baba.


followers of hello scarlett may remember this post that i wrote in honour of my baba. at that time, her heart attack had only recently occurred, and she was slowly getting back onto her feet. i wrote it in hopes that we would be able to continue our weekly shopping trips, and because she more than deserved the attention and the surprise of finding herself on the internet.

this last sunday, my baba passed away.

i will never be able to describe what she meant to each and everyone that she knew. i will say that i will never forget our hilarious excursions, watching ‘i love lucy’ in the hospital, or spending weekday afternoons together (i was her home care and she was my entertainment).

my baba was such an amazing woman. she loved her family, and relished any company to come her way. she was funny. she was a fighter. she appreciated life and would not take no for an answer. i can only imagine what sort of trouble she is getting up to in heaven with her late husband, and with everyone who has passed on before her. i do know that our lives here will not be the same without her. 

i love and miss you, baba.
