is the eve of Papa's 11th year of bliss with the Lord,
and though that night is relatively a distant memory
now, the ache of separation is still felt by everyone in
was the youngest then, and I don't know how much he
remembers about Papa as he was only 2 years old at that
time. I wrote a personal letter to Papa a few
years back, and I'd been telling Jian stories about Papa
since, but I can still sense that, like how I feel about
my Grandmother, he will forever be just a story for
her. She will never feel the separation, the lump
in the throat feeling called love.
she can't be blamed for that. Papa was not part of
her world. But because of where he is now, she is
very much a part of his, and it'll have to do.
love you, Papa. Thanks for looking out for us
still. . .
September 8 will now be doubly important to both sides
of my family, as not only is it Papa's anniversary, it
is now also the birthday of the youngest Saulan kid,
Mary Grace, born early in the morning while the
Villanueva family was praying for our Papa. Her
father, Johnny, or more commonly known as Intsik,
informed us that afternoon of the great news.
September 8 is also the birthday of the Blessed Virgin
Mary, the whole family is hoping that Mary Grace will be
the catalyst of change for the whole family, bringing us
luck and blessings from up high.
to the family, Mary Grace!!!!
