Our First Farewell

Sham & I lost a family member 2 weeks ago.
His maternal granddad died of a heart attack on a Thursday morning.

The funeral mass and cremation was the very day after.
A 7-day prayer followed.
Friends and family rallied around the family, comforting his widow.
Prayers were said, hymns were sung, old friends visited and were reacquainted.
There was a lot of love in the air.

Tata was 77 when he died.
He leaves behind a wife, 4 children, 4 children-in-law and 7 grandchildren.
All of whom were brought closer together by their loss.
Yes, there are silver linings around dark clouds.
Tata, you are finally home with Jesus.
May you rest in peace.

Condolences from Stephen, Lita and Jared.

To the Lord, we go, when our purpose on earth is done.

May your Tata's soul rest in eternal peace.
