喪中葉書
2013-11-27 11:49

Recently I received a post card which notified me that a friend of mine who I met at an English examination site about 25 years ago, passed away in September. She had never failed to send me a New Year card, so her husband might have thought that he would have to send me a mourning card. I regretted not having contacted her earlier so that I could talk to her more. I knew that she had had uterine cancer about 10 years ago, but I did not know that she was still suffering from it. She was 5 years older than I, but she was beautiful, very active and wanted to do something new all the time. She opened an English school and taught English to her neighbors at her own apartment after her two daughters had grown up. I offered a silent prayer to her, but I still cannot believe the news.(2013.11.27)
英語検定試験の会場で25年前に知り合った友達が子宮ガンで9月に亡くなりました。娘さん2人が大きくなったので、念願かなって英語塾を自宅で初め、その数年後に癌を患いました。毎年年賀状には近況、特に癌治療について知らせてくれたのに…、先日喪中葉書がご主人から届き、今もまだ信じられない気持です。
