Six Month Anniversary Of My Father’s Sudden Demise

Papa and Grandson

My father and his grandson.

Today is the six month anniversary of my father’s sudden demise and I still can’t believe he’s no longer with us. I know we all die, but losing a parent is one of the most difficult things in the world. I’m learning it’s not as easy as people make it seem to be. It doesn’t matter how old you or your parents are when they die, their passing is one of the most difficult things in the world to deal with.

So does it get any easier six months on? Not really. Not for me. I had a couple of good months where I felt the pain was easing a bit. Most significantly, hindi ko na madalas naiisip si Papa as often as the dead man lying on the hospital bed. That was one of the most difficult and devastating phase.

But just because I might not be grieving as intensely now as I were right after the loss, doesn’t mean that the days get any easier…I miss my father every single day!

To My Beloved Papa
If tears could build a stairway, and memories a lane. I’d walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

Missing You Terribly Papa

Missing you terribly Pa!

Missing you terribly Pa!

Pa, I am deeply sorry nga wala na matuman ang akong saad nimo nga mo uli karong bulana kauban unta si Gillian. I can imagine kung unsa kadako ang imong kalipay kung natuman pa unta kini. Pero wala naman ka, so hangtud nalang ko sa pag imagine ug pag dumdum nimo.

Ika lima ka bulan na karong adlawa nga wala naka aning kalibutana. You know, my tears flow often with the pain of missing you! I wish time could be rewound to bring you back again!

4th Death Anniversary

Remembering my father.

Today is the anniversary of the day that I lost you, and for a time it felt as though my life has ended too. But loss has taught me many things, and now I face each day with hope and happy memories to help me on my way. And though I’m full of sadness that you’re no longer here, your influence still guide me and I still feel you near.

Pa, you are loved beyond words and missed beyond measure…
