The bonding that I had with Perepa for the past 1 year was very special and memorable. I thought Perepa was a quite person and doesnt talk much, but I had a chance to see a different Perepa. I and Perepa have had lot of conversations, I am sure, the things he shared with me during those conversations, he would not have shared it with anybody else. I liked the fact that he used to like go walking only with me. He used to listen to whatever I say, like my father would have listened to me. I am feeling blessed that just a month ago Perepa stayed with me at my home, we have had lunch and dinner together most of the days, which I have missed doing it with my appa. I used to feel that I could not do anything for my appa, but all that I missed doing for my appa, I got those fulfilled doing it for Perepa. I was holding up strong but when we dressed him for the last time, I broke down completely when it hit me that I am losing my father once again and not going see him anymore. I am sure he is at better place right now. But I will miss Perepas that smiling face, the walk, the conversations and the love & affection that I felt even though he doesnt say or show. I will miss you a lot Perepa. Thank you Perepa for giving me a memorable 1 year, which I will cherish for my life.
