rememberin Daddy

today marks the 40th day of Dad — time flew so fast…..June 26, 2006.

I was on leave today to be of help to my Mom and Brother to prepare food for the ones who are having a vigil and also the visitors who will be with us to remember Dad’s 40th day.

At around 12noon, we have prayed for Dad and mommy’s officemates were there to pray with us including some of Mommy’s relatives.

It was fun to reminisce how good Daddy was and how bubbly he is………….he was a jolly person though strict……

I miss Dad and we’re happy that He’s happy with God.

happy father’s day, dad!

this is not just an ordinary day for us….this is one among the special days of our lives in our family.

today marks the 30th day of dad in heaven….and today is father’s day.

We used to celebrate this special day by giving daddy a present in the past years when he was still here with us… i would usually give him something to add up on his polo collection to be used during his get up in his workplace.

my Mom would then buy him also pants or any special gift , then my brother would cook at home his favorite menu, my sister would buy him perfume too…which is one among the passion of dad…or we might go mall hopping and eat dinner at our favorite resto.

Since Dad is not with us anymore, we just prayed for him instead and had our bonding moments.

Since i now live independently with my husband, i had to meet Mommy, my sister, my brother, cousins and my aunt at Alabang Town Center to celebrate DAd’s 30th day and Father’s Day.

Celebrating this day without Dad is lonely but indeed a good bonding moment with my family again. After the last Mass, i immediately followed them at GOOD EARTH, wherein we ate all the favorite food of Daddy.

We know how happy Dad is right now.

we miss you Dad, happy father’s day again!

post for dad

I just miss him so much! During weekends, i will go to Mom’s house and lie down on their bed and will say, “DAddy, nandito na po ako!” That’s what I usually say whenever I go and visit them…then he would ask, “Where’s Christian?” that’s how he also treasured my husband.

huhuhu! I miss my dad terribly.

the picture was taken inside Santuario de San Antonio during our wedding last October 14, 2005

I was so happy Dad was able to make it. Six months prior to our wedding date was a critical stage wherein he was also hospitalized.

Then 7 months after our wedding, he did join our Creator.

Before he did, i remembered him asking for grandchildren…but we were not able to even give him one.

I love you Dad, hope i can hug you tight!

saddest day of our lives

my dad has been sick, a couple of years back. He has myocardial infarction which initially attacked him december of 2004. we were so nervous then, that he couldn’t make it on our wedding. i reminded him that he should get well that he had to walk me down the aisle with all smiles and being a proud dad.

but just today, marked the saddest part of our lives….my very own dad passed away. i was saddened by the news that he was comatosed when i receive the news from my brother.

at around 3:40am, we got several missed calls on my phone. it was my brother and sister…..when i saw those missed calls, i got a bad feeling that something bad arised….and its true, my dad was in coma…..

they told me that i need to go to the hospital because we need to bring him to the ICU of a bigger hospital with complete facilities. i asked them if everything is being monitored for daddy…and they said that doctor told them that he’s in coma.

they were waiting for me to arrive at the hospital so i and my husband drove all the way to pacita to check on daddy….the E.R. and the Cadaver room is situated next to each other…i was hoping i will be able to catch dad at the E.R….I was surprised to see them already at the Cadaver room with dad covered with hospital linen…..i felt so guilty that i didn’t hurry up that soon….

I saw my dad still in hot temperature which my mom claimed that he just passed away a few minutes before i arrived. He was not able to wait for me anymore….

I just realized how life should have been so unfair that i was not able to express my love to him fully….he was even so excited to see our new pad because he was about to visit us then…he was so happy that we have our own homey.

we reminisced how thoughtful he was, no matter how tired he is coming from his work, once he knew that someone is confined at the hospital, he will definitely be there…he was there when my mom in law had stroke and when my husband was confined last month.

i know i have some bitterness for my dad’s selfish acts when i was still young, but i know, he is my dad that he has showed that he loved me in his own simple ways.

we will miss our daddy… that father’s day is nearing, we should have expressed our love even more for him.

i was just so happy that before he got comatosed, he shouted ” LORD, PATAWAD!…….. I know Dad is now in heaven…!!! and that’s the parting words that kept us happier that he asked forgiveness before his last breath.

Lesson learned : Show your love to the people dear to you…you will never know what comes after tomorrow.

We love you Dad and we will miss you!!! How I wish, i should have shown you the love you deserve….
