relationships

I spoke to this person over the phone one month ago. I reminded her that life is short and that she should make an effort to visit her grandmother who stays a few hours away from her.Her grandmother is already in her 80's. I doubt she paid heed to my advice.
Last night,I received a call from this person. She said that her grandmother has passed away. She had a fall in the bathroom and went into a coma, succumbing to death two days later. I felt sad when I heard that. I don't know when was the last time this gal saw her grannny. Anyway, I did not detect any sign of regret from her tone over the phone.
In my last telephone conversation with this person, I told her that relationships are what matters in life, not the mere pursuit of money. What do you all say? Ultimately, what really matters in life?

  • Oh well..if she feels no loss..then..God bless her. Can't help ppl who don't want to be helped, sometimes.

  • to some, a loss may even take time to sink in. so they may appear cool or nonchalant. but when the full blown realisation sinks in, they can succumb emotionally big time.

  • Regret is a very hard thing to swallow. It doesn't go down easily and nobody can swallow it for you.
