of living and be worthy to receive the gift from his Creator. As he grow

So, I love
you because the entire universe conspired to help me find you.
home. Uncertain of what is beyond the horizon. I'm ready to start things
new as once told by the oracle. I'm moving forward with new hopes and
dreams and never forgetting the people behind me.
When I will
come back, I am renewed, replenished, rejuvenated. I am filled with the
happiness of living because I am loved. Thank you.
it will be Father's Day after two days. My father missed that special
day when his children would celebrate with their father.
Dad, I just
left our home last Monday for Maui. Why didn't you tell me you are leaving
forever? I shed a tear when I bade goodbye and said I'm going back to
Hawaii where I was born. You told me to work hard like what you did when
you were here. Dad, you are someone I look up to. The values you have
instilled in us together with Mom. You nurtured us to become good children
when we were kids, we take a bath together with two brothers. We were
one such happy family. I cried when I saw a videotape of us in the dining
room when we were whole again.
I can feel
your loneliness. When I left for Maui to pursue my career goals. Mom came
with me and she found work. I know it's not easy to cope up with the loneliness.
I wish I didn't come back to America where they say it's teeming with
milk and honey. We should have been one great happy family. But I made
a choice. It's my fault Dad. You should not have let me. It's too late.
It's too late.
thirteen years, you endured. I can feel that longing deep inside your
soul. Life is not that easy, I know. When your wife and son is far, far
away following their Personal Legend. It must have been written in the
Soul of the World and there it will stay forever.
Dad, in everything
I do, I always remember you. I shall name my son after you but not when
I'm 65. I should have asked you why you married at that age. Have you
ever loved someone so bad? When you met my Mom, your eyes were glowing.
Maybe, your heartache was over. You finally met the one. Did you also
believe that the entire universe conspired to help you find her. That's
why Dad, I believe in you. Your love brought forth three adorable boys.
They grew up with your ideals and learned about life. Life is a gift and
we cherish it because we are filled with love by you, by Mom, by our friends,
and by God.
leave us Dad, you just went on a journey and took a long sabbatical that
is overdue. When you come back we'll be whole again. We love you. We will
live by your legacy. God be with you on your journey. You're with us forever.
for your kind words of sympathy, generous offerings, beautiful flowers
and most of all for the warmth and kindness you are showing us in our
Day. I love you Dad. You made me proud of you. For your existence
gave me a reason to live and be filled with love and bliss. I seek my
Personal Legend and every person's life I touch shall be blessed because
I am endowed with life. I know my life's purpose. You gave me the meaning
of life. Life is love. Love makes us live. It is the very essence of this
universe. The universe have conspired to make things happen. I shall live
my life for humanity's ascendance to the Divine. I dedicate this day to
you. You have completed the circle of life. Continue guiding me Father

I are leaving for Manila. So much hopes and dreams to be fulfilled. We
set a new journey in our lives. Strengthened by the very presence of a
husband and a father even after death, life has a new beginning. I understand
our existence. Life is a continuous process--nurtured by love.
in Manila at the NAIA 2. I don't know if I should be glad that I'm back
here again after a week of being home in Maui. Dad is gone. This is the
last time the whole family is seeing him. This is the truth about life,
there is birth and death. Everything in this world is dualistic.
Dad has been
always there for us. He constantly tells me to be strong in my life's
journeys. His adventures in the Hawaiian islands. His fasting lifestyle
which contributed to his longevity. I have understood that the food we
eat is responsible for our diseases as well as our emotions. Dad is not
a cold person. He is loved though some people hated him because they don't
understand him. Dad learns to appreciate people. At his age of 92, when
I was there and I gave him the healing of touch, and offered him a drink,
he always thank me. Appreciating people is love. It imparts to the individual
one's deed is very worthy. Dad, I give you the utmost respect in my own
complete. My brother have also arrived from Europe. We waited for him
and then we went forth to our home in La Union. It was just a house but
now it's a home. The family is complete again.
at 5 a.m. Dad has really gone. He's lying in a casket. I have looked for
his ring. I placed it on top of the casket. It is made out of green plastic.
It has a heart shape. I know he is truly happy. He saw his sons grow as
men and became good kids. He saw his grandchildren grow. Dad, before you
finally go into the depths of the earth and reach the heights of the heavens,
I wish you could bless me with the one. Thanks dad.
is in the state of mourning. Life went on as usual with those traditions
and folklore of Philippine society.
A final day
with my dad and his family. May you rest in peace Dad. I want to extend
my heartfelt thanks to our friends and relatives who joined us in our
bereavement. God's blessings be with you for those present and not present
as we mourned the loss of my father.
O Daddy, itan ta awankan, agtultuloy ka latta nga agbalin nga inspirasyonmi
nga annakkmo ken ti kaputotam. Nadanonmo nga nakita ti itatanor dagiti

humanity. The people are blind but she radiates the truth of living, something
everyone should emulate and this world will never be the same again.
for coming. I really appreciate it. Dad is happy to see you at last. We're
to your heart. It knows all things, because it came from the Soul of the
World, and it will one day return there." - The Alchemist
I woke up
with a smile in my heart thanking God's blessings of strength and wisdom.
People judge thru their five physical senses leaving the spiritual aspect.
This is our human nature. Even I, not exempted. But when we ascend to
the very nature of the Divine we can achieve a world in harmony. Someday
humanity will learn of his divine fate.
