The Passing of a Dear Friend

April 23rd, 2018

A dear friend to us, Eva, died on Friday, April 13th 2018. We were Malawi friends. She was tiny, tiny, fierce and funny with an eye for a colourful dress. She also had the eye of a tiger on a mission.. taking care of all her grandchildren.Tough going in the relentlessness grind of poverty… Working as a General Assistant in Ndi Moyo Clinic was very important to Eva. She loved them. They loved her. They were all family.

I never saw her cry, I never heard her shout. Is this the way God made Malawian women or was it just her?

I only went to her house once. To bring her deceased baby granddaughter back home to be buried.

I saw her two weeks ago. Frail and tired but beautiful and still laughing.

I will miss her every time I go back to Ndi Moyo. I miss her now. We will all miss her.

Eva RIP
