In honor to Arelis.

It is a sad day for a number of people that I know and for myself. When a hard situation almost non-understandable event happen we tend to ask God the reason of it as if ignoring that He knows what´s best for us and that He does no wrong when he decide to call someone to his presence. Of course we all tend to get sad and we cry and we feel a deep emptiness in our hearts just to know that we no longer will see that person alive and living among us. Arelis was only 24 or so, we studied together in college and her life seemed to be a long way to walk, however a few months ago, she was diagnosed with leuquemia (blood´s cancer). One of our common friends told me about her, while I was still abroad and one of the first things I did when I came back to Panama, was to pay her a visit. So me and my friends went to her place and it was nice to see her smiling and with a positive attitude. She was better and under chemiotherapy. We talked about things proper of old friends and though I wasn´t very close to her we shared a pleasent evening. A few days back, a friend told me that she is in the hospital´ unit of intensive care and yesterday I learned that she died. I believe she is in a better place at this moment and all suffering is history. Not anymore ever. We get sad and cry but we go on living this life given by God, knowing that one day it´ll be us.

Good Bye Arelis

i think, u treasure all of ur friends very much.
it is sad for us if we see someone who is sick, specially, if the sickness is very difficult to cure... hoping that the person will be able to survive but.. what im trying to say right now is "it is more important that we've spend our time and love(expressing it) with a healthy or sick friend or relative... we do not know really what time we r scheduled to be called by our father in heaven....
U did great job in being a friend to Arnelis.
In the way, u talked about her i think, she is a great person and a fighter.
She definitely spread her character to all of u and all the people who will be able to know her story.
I have more something in my mind but how come i cannot put it on writing?....
maybe next time, i will read more about ur webpage.
thanks, Josh.Take care always.
