My Dearest Lolo
March 8, 2009 2:51pm CST
This is the second day my lolo is no longer with us. Lolo, my grandfather, is the best lolo I've ever known. He's not perfect nor rich. But he's a great husband, loving father and a model LOLO. He would have turned 73 next month. Four years from now, his marriage would turn gold--50 years. Last February 14 was their 46th wedding anniversary. My lolo is a stubborn man. He usually follows what he wants and thinks best for the situation. He is a good debater. I have never won an argument with him. And he is a very strong guy, a daredevil. This is the imperfect side of my lolo. This makes him human. But despite all of these, we love him very much. Lolo has been an inspiration to us. He is the unifying force in the family(clan) he and lola established. They were successful, indeed. Everybody treats everyone a family. And I am happy they made us have that bond. Lolo is one of the people who brag my achievements. He always tell visitors and friends of how proud he was of having me as his grandchild. He even I think memorized almost all the awards I received. I miss him more when I remember those good times. We love our lolo very much. And it pains us so much to say our goodbyes. Everybody wants to look strong. Everyone tries not to show tears. But I know that deep within, everybody grieves. I know. I do, too. I guess the burial would trigger us to reveal what we really feel. I can't be prepared enough. I can no longer hide the pain. That would be the last day I would ever see my lolo physically. Thinking about it makes me cry inside. I love my lolo. We love him very much. He is our inspiration. He will always be. Even he is no longer visible he will always be here in our hearts. I will miss him. We will all do. I know he is much comfortable now where he is. You'll always be remembered, lolo. I love you.
