....a wish


first of all let me warned you that i do love my dad and posting some pictures of him has nothing to do with disrespect...i just want to share his only wish-a lifetime wish that he always mentioned everytime he got a chance on that topic.i grew up with my dad's idea that  having a lot of grandson and granddaughters are good.i didn't know what is really the point of wanting for so much of big family,i thought it's because he was born politician so he wants it that way but,as years gone by we learned that having a big family is really his long time dream not only because he wants his name to be carried with all his grandsons but,its the wish and dream that one day if its already his time he wants his  body to be carry by all of them.... when i heard about it,i just smiled because at that time he was still strong and healthy...only after 2009 christmas he got seriously ill and as you all know he didn't make it till his 80th birthday which is today.....he passed away at the age of 79,and everytime he will say something at the time he was ill he never forget mentioning his wish.... he asked everyone of us that if he dies  we let our nephews to carry him form our home to his resting place....that is really something and for sure not much of people will do this not even in my country especially if they live very far from the cemetery.... it's good thing we have our own in the  town and a bit nearer  than before.he is really so lucky co'z he can have his lifetime wish. i hope he is happy now because as far as im concerned we did everything to give him the best we can,maybe not so perfect but atleast we tried our best and we followed what he said.... so wherever he is now i hope he is resting in PEACE.... i love you dad and i missed you.... happy birthday too....

What a sweet tribute..very different and perfect in mono- I haven't seen one like this!
My brother never lived to see his 22nd birthday. He died on Valentines day back in 1972. Anyway, his birthday was the 21st actually.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

What a lovely post. It's so good to be able to give our loved ones their final wishes, and at least you knew exactly what your father wanted.
Your photos are perfect.

Dear Blue,
allow me to express my deepest respect upon this entry of yours, which did leave me indeed wordless.

Love does negate all time and distance. You for sure are connected.

A nice Sunday for you.

Very touching ang post mo sis....waaaa naiyak nanaman ako. Actually kahapon napadaan na ako dito ng sumaglit akong makisingit sa anak ko na gumagamit ng lappy ko, eh kahapon nahuli nya akong malapit ng tumulo ang luha kaya sabay talikod ko at hindi na ako nakabalik pa. So ngayon, tilog na sila, kaya ok na akong umiyak at mag emote kasi naalala ko nanaman ang tatay ko.


Nice tribute para sa popsie mo sis.

Lucy said...

Just stopped in to say I hope you are ok. I am sure you are but want you to know I am thinking of you.
