Remembering Papa

family Add comments

Papa should have turned 60 today and should have received his Senior Citizens identification card. Well, it’s just that he passed away five years ago. He died before he turned 55 years old. My father like any fathers was not a perfect. My sister Patty even learned from him that “promises are made to be broken”. :P He may not be a perfect husband to our mother and a perfect father to us his children, but I remember him being a loving and sweet father to us and grandfather to Nonet. Nonet being the first grandchild has a very special place in his heart.

My sisters, our mother and I have been talking about papa. In some ways, we feel good about the thought that papa is in a better place now. That we will not feel so worried when he is not home or when he is “wandering” around. :P On the other hand, we felt bad because, he is no longer around when my two younger sisters’ graduated from college. He is not here to see Pauline graduate from college as Magna Cum Laude. He is not here to sing in our videoke with our LCD TV. He was not able to play through our computer. He dreamt of having a computer. He is not here to see Nonet received her second honor medal.  

He may not be physically around now, but we believe that somewhere up there, he can see us and we know that he is happy with what we have achieved. I know that even up to this day, he is still protecting us, especially his beloved grand-daughter. :)

Up to this day, I can still remember the sacrifices and the pain he and our family went through. I remember the day when I told him that he has a stage 4 cancer. I remember the day when we fought, which was 2 days before he died.

Honey always told me that papa has been very proud of me and that he loved me so much, he loved us so much.

We will always miss papa. I believe that you are in God’s care now and you are happy looking on us from up there. Happy and proud.

We love you papa. Happy 60th birthday!

Ciao! :)
