Jumat, 17 Agustus 2018, seluruh masyarakat Indonesia merayakan Dirgahayu Kemerdekaan Republik Indonesia yang ke-73. Luapan sukacita dari seluruh penjuru negeri membahana menggetarkan rasa dan asa. Namun, pagi itu kami tidak bisa mengikuti upacara kenaikan bendera. Kami telah dikejutkan oleh kabar yang menyedihkan. Tetangga kami, Bapak Kusnadi, wafat. Padahal, di hari-hari sebelumnya, ia tampak segar. Setiap kali saya melewati rumahnya dan menyapanya, ia membalas sapaan saya dengan lantang.

Friday, August 17, 2018, all Indonesians celebrate the 73rd Indonesian Independence Day. Overflowing joy from all parts of the country sparked a sense of excitement and hope. However, that morning we could not attend the flag raising ceremony. We have been shocked by sad news. Our neighbor, Mr. Kusnadi, died. In fact, in the previous days, he looked fresh. Every time I passed his house and greeted him, he replied my greeting aloud.

 

 

Bahkan, kata istrinya, Kamis sore, 16 Agustus 2018, ia masih tampak ceria dan aktif menerima telepon dari rekan bisnisnya. Namun, setelah mandi pada saat magrib, badannya merasa tidak enak. Ia merasa banyak angin di dalam tubuhnya. Lalu badannya digosok dan dikerok oleh istrinya. Kepalanya pun merasa pusing hingga ia tersungkur dan pingsan. Kamis malam ia dibawa ke Rumah Sakit Umum Daerah Soreang, Kabupaten Bandung, Jawa Barat, Indonesia. Ia dirawat di sana hingga pada hari Jumat, 17 Agustus 2018, jam tujuh pagi, ia wafat. Jenazah Bapak Kusnadi kembali dibawa ke rumahnya, Sanggar Indah Banjaran, Kabupaten Bandung. Jenazahnya diurus oleh banyak warga setempat. Setelah sholat Jumat, jenazahnya dikebumikan di Taman Pemakaman Umum Sanggar Indah Banjaran. Ia meninggalkan satu istri dan tiga anak yang masih kecil-kecil pada usianya yang ke-51 tahun kurang dua minggu.

In fact, he said, Thursday afternoon, August 16, 2018, he still seemed cheerful and actively received calls from his business partners. However, after taking a shower at sunset, the body feels bad. He felt a lot of wind in his body. Then his body was rubbed and scraped by his wife. His head felt dizzy until he fell down and fainted. Thursday night he was taken to the Soreang Regional General Hospital, Bandung Regency, West Java, Indonesia. He was treated there until Friday, August 17, 2018, at seven in the morning, he died. The body of Mr. Kusnadi was brought back to his house, Sanggar Indah Banjaran, Bandung Regency. His body was taken care of by many local residents. After Friday prayers, his body was interred in the Sanggar Indah Banjaran Public Cemetery. He left one wife and three small children at the age of 51 and less than two weeks.

 

 

Selama beberapa tahun terakhir, Bapak Kusnadi yang sehari-harinya berwirausaha sebagai bandar rongsokan ini memang mengidap diabetes. Fungsi jantung dan ginjalnya pun terganggu. Itu sebabnya, seorang terapis menyarankan agar ia tidak mandi selepas magrib. Tapi ia suka melanggarnya. Dan pelanggaran terakhirnya, pada Kamis, 16 Agustus 2018, itu membawanya pada kematian. Hal ini membuat istri dan anak-anaknya yang masih kecil sangat sedih. Kini istrinya telah menjadi janda, dan anak-anaknya telah menjadi anak-anak yatim. Semoga Allah memberikan kebahagiaan bagi jiwa Bapak Kusnadi di alam sana, juga bagi istri dan anak-anaknya di dunia ini. Aamiin.

Over the past few years, Mr. Kusnadi, who is an entrepreneur in his daily life as a wrecker, has diabetes. The function of the heart and kidneys is disturbed. That is why, a therapist suggested that he not take a shower after sunset. But he likes to break it. And his last violation, on Thursday, August 16, 2018, it brought him to death. This made his wife and young children very sad. Now his wife has become a widow, and her children have become orphans. May God give happiness to Father Kusnadi’s soul in the world, also to his wife and children in this world. Aamiin.
