On Death

Death is and will always be a part of life. We all know that it is inevitable, yet when we are faced with the death of a loved one, it just is difficult to accept the fact that we can never hear their laughter again or feel the warmth of their embrace or the special way they make us feel despite our imperfections.

And I guess that this is what our ninang, Mama Sara feels. Her father just passed away this morning due to old age, asthma and complications that go with. It saddens us to hear about it.. and I know how much Mama Sara and her sister Ate Bem are grieving right now... grieving and sad and pained by the fact that they were not by their father's side on his last moments here on earth and the fact that they are delayed from coming home due to work commitments and insuffient funds. But I know that God will make a way. I believe that he will make things possible for this two good, dear women to fly back to the Philippines. Ah, if only we have wings so we can fly or have magic brooms.

It is 9pm and raining as of this writing. And we are on the road, on our way to Tokyo where we used to live to extend our condolences to them. It is an hour's drive but it is okay. Thanks to Lucy, we can travel long distances anytime. And thank God for the little conveniences that allow us to help and support people who are like family to us.

And as for tatay, may his soul rest in peace. May the family he left behind be comforted by the fact that he is now with Our Creator.
