Gone Home.



Nothing ever prepares you for death,
no matter how much you've actually been expecting it.
When it happens, it still pains you, it still feels sudden,
it still breaks your heart.

She was old and weak and has been telling us she was tired.
Today, my maternal grandmother, Fe Gloria Batausa
joined her Creator, on the feast of Mary Help of Christians.

We will miss her. I will miss her.
And I shall think of her and her legacy for the rest of my life.

Thank you to everyone who texted, emailed, called, and left FB messages
and to those who offered prayers
.

My condolences to you and to your family Ate Ai. I agree with you Ate, death will pain us, no matter how we expect for it to come.

We were in so much pain when our Papa passed away. But we were comforted in the fact that he´s now with Our Creator. And I was even more comforted when I read in The Purpose Driven Life few months ago that when one dies, he or she is actually going home to the Father and not leaving us.

I know Ate Ai, your Lola is now home with Our Father.

Thank you, Jul.
It's a very comforting thought that they've gone home to the Father.
And one day, we will, too.

Think of the happy times you've had with her and consider yourself lucky to have such loving grandma (and grandparents). May she rest in peace.

I'll keep this in mind, Tita.
I do feel very lucky to have such amazing grandparents.
I'm very proud of them.

Thank you, Tita Lou.
