Chp 154. RIP Jimmy my friend

Saturday night was a sad night for me. My ex-roomie and dear friend Amos (Goldmember / Fadenomore) from Bangalore called me up to deliver the sad news that our very close friend Jimmy F.Lalnunzira is no more.

He died after battling a serious “liver dysfunction” for many months…

I still can’t believe he’s no more… all those laughter and fun we used to share back in Bangalore… I really can’t write anything else for now… the more I think about those good old days, the more I am about to break down…

This video says it all about my friend, my brother-in-arms, my loyal companion. Jimmy F.Lalnunzira.



Rest in Peace brother. All those nights we used to head-bang in your little room together listening to Metal music and one of the best guitarists I have ever known, how we used to endlessly debate about Gothic music and your stubborn attitude about us Gothic lovers that we don’t know how to play the lead guitar, those many times you watched my back and I watched yours while failing to “score” for the umpteenth time, having our own code-word for “beer” so that your sister Emily won’t know we were sneaking them into your room without her knowledge, how you would crack up and lighten up the entire room with your unique sense of humor, how I would help you with so many things that you don’t want Emily to find out, and how I would help Emily with so many things that she doesn’t want you to find out, alas how ironic! Those secrets from both sides are now locked forever.

Bro, I will cherish all those memories forever.

My utmost condolences to Emily who is beyond any grief as of now… Back in Bangalore, they were always “Emily and Jim”. I have never known any siblings more inseparable than the two of them. I cannot even imagine the tremendous pain Emily must be going through right now…

Rest in peace, my brother. All my prayers are with you and your family…

OMG... That is so sad... *hugs* to you...
I can totally understand the pain and the loss and the shock... It's almost a month since my friend passed away, but, I'm still coming to terms with it.
God Bless his soul and I pray that his family gets the strength to pass thru these difficult times...

Dearest Kima,

I am so sorry for yours and your friend's family's loss. I will not say I understand you pain because even though i have lost few friends along the way, I dont think jimmy would have said or done the same thing as they would have. I dont know if jimmy would have thought Dr.XXX was the awesomest movie on earth or if he would have liked eating bread with chocolate syrup on it or if he would slap my butt and say "ho ho ho".

But I understand your grief. I understand the loss of a friend. Thinking of all those things my deceased friends would have done and thought makes me hollow and sad. But I hope it consoles you like it does me knowing that atleast we were lucky to have known our friends and build all those wonderful memories.

Kima, even though i am next to you now, i am sharing a tear for a your friend jimmy and all those friends i have lost. I pray that God give everyone the strength to overcome his death.

With deepest regards and Heartfelt condolences,
Warm Hugs
Sowmya

Bro, I have no words about this. God loves good people so much that he takes them away before their time. He loves them so much that he doesn't want them to suffer here anymore.

He's gone to a better place and you should be happy for him :)

One by one
Only the Good die young
They're only flying too close to the sun
And life goes on -
Without you...


No one but you - Queen

my deepest condolences to Jimmy's family and friends.
I too have lost a dear fren in an accident.he was a lively person, always cheerful n his sudden death was almost unacceptable.Think that they must be having a better time up there, after all the world is not the most desirable place to live in.

Sorry to hear about this.

It's hard to believe to hear that you have lost someone so close to you. I remeber when a friend passed away in 2005. I wasn't even shocked when I heard about it...but after a month or two, while going to office, a tought came to me "Rocky is dead". That was when it finally dawned on me.

having to laugh at Jim's unfunny jokes.. good times.
he'd start rambling on about some random guitarist in some death metal band and i used to nod on as i knew everything about that guitarist!
and then when emily didnt wanna give him money to buy a bottle of SAVAWM he'd come to me.. "in 'con' ila"
good times.. RIP Jimmy

Losing someone dear to you, a friend or a family member, is always something that's surreal and hard to believe. One of my brother's friends died almost ten years ago, and to this day I still expect to see him popping into our house everytime I go home, we still talk about him as if we'd seen him just the day before. All of us are travelling towards death, but when it happens to someone we know we still find it hard to accept and believe that yes, he/she is no more, is not coming back, we will never see him/her again, never hear his/her voice again.

Hello Kima,
Thanks for posting this. Jimmy is my nephew and I still find it hard to believe that he has gone. I hardly met him in the past decade since I had studied and worked away from home and he was away too. The picture I have of him is much different from the video. When I heard that he was struggling for survival I called up his dad and Emily. I was sad to hear from Emily that his condition was not improving at all. His condition worsened and very soon I heard the sad news that he passed away. I called up his dad immediately. My spirit lightened when I heard from him that Jimmy left fully prepared to meet his Saviour and He is now in a better place. I praise God for his grace! I'm sure this is a good news for all his friends too! God bless!
