Over the Rainbow

Another member of my mother’s immediate family has gone on, this time her older brother, my uncle Eddie. With him and my grandfather no longer with us, this Christmas would have to be the most challenging of all.

But life goes on. I would rather celebrate the 67 years my uncle spent on earth than focus on the sadness of his passing. I will always remember him for his hearty appetite :) and his ability to find joy in the simple things: bargains, chicharon, a good hair cut and massage from his favorite barber, conversations about Philippine politics, reading the morning paper, getting a good night’s sleep…

“Death is no more than passing from one room into another. But there’s a difference for me, you know. Because in that other room I shall be able to see.” – Helen Keller
