And So September Ends

Last month was quite eventful and exhausting. We had to travel to Manila twice. The first time was when my father was in the ICU. The second was to pay my last respects. After a couple of months of enduring different procedures, my father passed away September 21. It was a painful and enlightening ordeal. But I’m sure he’s happy up there. We love you dad.

Death in the Family

My paternal grandmother passed away early this morning. She’s been bedridden for the past couple of years already so it didn’t really come as unexpected. And my grandfather passed away last year (with a weak heart caused by chemotherapy) so it was just a matter of time before she would follow. I received the news around 3am. Her body is being cremated right now.

I’m sure she’s in a better place now. What really saddens me is I can’t be there for my father and my family.
