A SAD Weekend

We had a very sad weekend. Last August 22, 2009 was the funeral of my father-in-law.

It was so disheartening and distressing to bid goodbye to the person who had molded and took good care of my husband. The man though not perfect but the best father to my husband and to my husband's 2 siblings. It was a hard time for my daughter too. Although she cannot fully understand her feelings but I saw the sadness in my daughter's eyes as she said "Bye bye Lolo" (grandfather). My mother-in-law was greatly heartbroken. I know that it was the hardest and the most difficult thing to happen to be apart from someone whom you spent your life with for more than 31 years. I also saw the same expression as the expression my mother once have when we lost our father through death 6 years ago.

During the funeral I told my husband to cry but he insisted that he will not cry because he told me that he needs to be strong for his mother and for his sister and brother. I told him that he will feel better if he just cry but he was headstrong. He was able to say thank you to all those present and to those who extended their respective condolences and expression of sympathy. But when the casket was placed inside the vault and started to low down, my husband could no longer hide his feelings, he cried so hard...

I know that we will be okey, as of now we are still mourning and adjusting to this new chapter of our life.

It is really hard to lose someone we love. It takes time to accept it. But we all just have to pray and trust God that everything happens for the best. God Bless.
