It’s been almost two and half years I am working with Paul Penders Company and during that time I got close to several of our distributors in Asian and European countries alike. With some of them it feels to me like they have become even personal friends. As with all friendships there are up and down, and emotional issues of all kinds; both good and sad. Today I wish to sharing about two friends; people with families that we do business with, or through our several charity programs we are involved in, or just contact with them otherwise.
Tafzeel Ajmal Moosbally is one of our good friends and a distributor all the way in the small and beautiful island of Mauritius. Those who follow the Paul Penders blog may remember the story about Tafzeel and his great enthusiasm for Paul Penders products. Once he flew into Langkawi to visit us without us even preparing anything and while still in the plane he asked me to pick him up at the airport! It was the first time he came to Langkawi and first time meeting him. He persuaded us about his true commitment for the products in Mauritius and enthusiasm for the Paul Penders team with the promise to deliver the best possible representation for us in Mauritius.
But recently, his beloved wife became ill due a serious infection. It happened very sudden and the illness got quickly worst; then it took the life of this young mother and wife. I called Tafzeel few days ago and of course he was totally heartbroken. They had plans to come to Malaysia to visit us after delivering of their 2nd child. I myself got heartbroken too.
- Dear Tafzeel and family:
I just wanted to let you know how sorry I was to hear about the sudden loss of your dear wife Rizwana. I know how much you loved each other. Although I never met Rizwana personally yet know she is a cheerful, positive & very kind person. May God blesses and comforts you, Tafzeel and your family at this great loss.
From Faye and all at Paul Penders Company
Then a written letter was received this week all the way from Salt Lake City, Utah, USA from Sherry Zebra. She was a student in a professional beauty course and at that time wished to open up her own beauty centre.
Toward the final semester, she needed to pick a product brand to give full presentation as if she was representing the brand. She chose Paul Penders products as she strongly believes in our values and product qualities and contacted us for more information. I was impressed with her and Paul decided to send her free products for her presentation.
It was so exciting for me to assist Sherry in getting what she needed while she worked so hard and got an “A” for her assignment what made us extremely proud of her. For more insight read the blog story at that time http://paulpenders.com/ppblog/?p=10409
And she did start her own beauty salon but then I received a letter with the shocking news that her beloved husband Daniel suddenly passed away. Due to the sudden death of her husband she start more and more to appreciate the value of gratitude, which I am myself also still try to develop too. Those who always have sense of appreciation and gratitude never seem to reach an impasse in life.
Here is the letter received from Sherry actually addressed to Paul:
The experience of losing a loved does force us toward a deeper understanding of life. Everyone fears death and is saddened by death; that is natural. But by struggling to overcome the pain and sadness that accompanies death, we become sharply aware of the dignity and preciousness of life and develop the compassion to share the sufferings of others as our own.
Paul Penders Company wishes Sherry the best in life and surely, because she is such a strong and wonderful person, I believe there are still lots of beautiful things waiting for her.
