Samuel Yarling was my colleague while at the Airtel Customer Care Centre. He was a jovial jolly good fellow.

We kept in touch even after ‘retiring’ from the call center we chatted and often joked about life and marriage.

Recently his pre-wedding pictures sprung up and i was super happy for him. I teased him and we laughed after which i wished him well.

Today was meant to be one of his happiest days but as fate would have it, he slummed and died today while getting ready for the great event.

Its been a day of sober reflection. Life is empty. Life is full of mysteries. May God heal and console all those grieving around the world.

May he grant us the wisdom to number our days and be straight in our dealings. Indeed this is not our home.
