My friend and her husband... then her father... :(

This is related to my post a couple of weeks back regarding my friend Vida who died with her husband while on a trip in Ethiopia. You can find the story on We visited her parents last June 13, a week after their death. They were so grateful that we visited them. We even discussed about seeing each other again when Vida and Issur's bodies will be brought home. Last Saturday, I received a sad news from one of our friends. She told me that Vida's father died last June 17. Moreover, we got the news that the remains of Vida and Issur will be at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport by June 24 and will be in their hometown by June 25. We will be visiting their hometown soon to pay our final respects. For now, we are in the process of asking for financial help from our families and friends. Whatever amount of money collected will be given to Vida's mom (now a widow). “Death ends a life, not a relationship.” ? Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie [i][/i]

That is wonderful that your going to help collect money like that. These are the times when family and friends should come together.
