I Miss My Best Friend Eric

6 years ago Eric came in to my life true yahoo chat.

We where both member's of the serial.clan in one of the thousands chat rooms yahoo provided.

We have been chatting like crazy, crying and laughing together.

We been there true thick and thin for better en for worse till dead did us part...

Yes dead did part us but will never take away the joy and laughter we shared.

Eric and i where both scrabble players he is married with Gigi his wife and have 2 kids,

Me I'm married with Oliver and have 5 kids.

Eric always boosted me up when i was down when i was mad when i was upset or whatever he would always say cheer up and do for the better.

Thousand mistakes i had made and Eric never put me down or blamed me no he was always at my side.

Today march 11 would have been Eric's 38Th birthday i would have song him the Happy Happy birthday song and make a toast to him,

Yet plans had changed God had another will for him.

Eric became very ill last year after having lymph node on the left side of his neck Th doctor give him 7 day's of antibiotics after that was finish nothing has changed so he went back to the hospital and they give him another doses of antibiotics good for 7 days. the last week of may was hard for he had sever diarrhea.

So he went back to the hospital and demanded that they would check his blood, so did they. The next day the result came available and he got the shock of his life the doctor could not believed what they saw as the white blood cell count was so high. They did another blood test and the day after his white blood cell count was even more higher..;he was then diagnosed with leukemia.

A couple day's later they had to do a bone marrow test to determine what kind of leukemia he got he had  CMML Chronic Myelomonocyctic Leukemia.

They started the chemo and after a sometime his white blood cell got better and Eric went back to work... it went up an off till the time he decided it would be better to return to Philippines to complete his chemo there and be with his wife, 2 sons and family...

Best told me he would be fine and he would be back after his cancer was gone...

Every now and then we chatted but i didn't want to play because i was afraid he would get to tired...

Christmas came and go and so did New year, Eric and i keep chatting and laughing about the past how i use to get mad at him because he always steal the 3w score at scrabble...he told me he had so much joy with me... In January i didn't heard much about him and then there was on January 25 a last offline message on my yahoo who went like this:

him : Where are you besttttttttttt

Him: Are you ok there best?

him: Miss you

Him: Kiss

On January 28 i wrote him back: Hi best sorry i was super busy, we are fine how are you there are you okay? i miss you so much best

I guess he never readed my last message anmore...

On feb .27 i received a message from his wife...it was with a text telling that My best Friend had past away already January 31 at 8 am i was the last to know. For a min when i opend my phone and saw 1 message from BEST my heart jumped with joy all i knew was that he txted me finally.

My best friend has lost his battle against cancer he lost the fight on the birthday of my son...I miss him everyday. Yet everyday i'm in disbelieve i still leave him messages at yahoo i still leave him messages at his face book... Just like today i wanted the world to know how much i loved my best friend today is his 38 Th birthday and i'm at lost.

There will never be a best friend like him again...I miss you Eric and i wish your happy there at the other side. Wait me because someday i will be there playing scrabble just like the way we use to be.

Love and care your Best friend from the other side!!!
