My Dear Papa, it is a sad week for all of us, and not just this week. From time to time we are thinking of you our dear Father. We commemorate the good and saddest times in our lives. We ended up crying and Jana will tease me and Mama na “O ma and dite, ano na yan?” Then we will just laugh afterwards. Sometimes in public places basta everytime we remember you. Your apo to me and John is way too smart, how i wish you’ve met her and spent your Grandfatherhood with her and all your apos. We miss you so much Pa. Yesterday pinilit ko po talagang umuwi ng balanga kasama ni Alexa para makaattend ng mass and the reading from John and gospel from Luke gave me comfort and peace.
1 John 2:1-5 My children, I am writing this to you
so that you may not commit sin.
But if anyone does sin, we have an Advocate with the Father,
Jesus Christ the righteous one.
He is expiation for our sins,
and not for our sins only but for those of the whole world.
The way we may be sure that we know him is to keep
his commandments.
Those who say, "I know him," but do not keep his commandments
are liars, and the truth is not in them.
But whoever keeps his word,
the love of God is truly perfected in him.

Luke 24:35-48
The two disciples recounted what had taken place on the way,
and how Jesus was made known to them
in the breaking of bread.

While they were still speaking about this,
he stood in their midst and said to them,
"Peace be with you."
But they were startled and terrified
and thought that they were seeing a ghost.
Then he said to them, "Why are you troubled?
And why do questions arise in your hearts?
Look at my hands and my feet, that it is I myself.
Touch me and see, because a ghost does not have flesh and bones
as you can see I have."
And as he said this,
he showed them his hands and his feet.
While they were still incredulous for joy and were amazed,
he asked them, "Have you anything here to eat?"
They gave him a piece of baked fish;
he took it and ate it in front of them.

He said to them,
"These are my words that I spoke to you while I was still with you,
that everything written about me in the law of Moses
and in the prophets and psalms must be fulfilled."
Then he opened their minds to understand the Scriptures.
And he said to them,
"Thus it is written that the Christ would suffer
and rise from the dead on the third day
and that repentance, for the forgiveness of sins,
would be preached in his name
to all the nations, beginning from Jerusalem.
You are witnesses of these things."

When I asked you in my mind “Papa kumusta ka na po” mamaya sasagutin ko rin sa sarili ko na “Ah mas masaya ka na dahil kasa-kasama mo na po ang Panginoon” and that gives me peace and assurance na kahit anong hirap basta nasa Diyos ay maiibsan lahat at malalampasan at sa bandang huli ay makakasama Siya.
Di po namin alam Papa ang plano ni Lord para sa amin nila Mama, pero isa lang ang pinakahinihiling namin, yun ay maiuwi ka at mabigyan ng maayos na libing. We love you and miss you...

“ 2nd Year”
...2 years...whoa bro it’s been 2 years already! I say to myself, “what?” really, I am still imagining that you are still in Phoenix, AZ living the dream :)! I miss you so much, dear bro! Yep I do and I do and I do every single day! I am working tomorrow and that is why I have to write this note to you and will post it when I’m done. Can you believe I am finally back to work already? Hahaha! I am grateful though, it keeps me sane, for crying out loud, hahahaha!!! So what’s up, bro? I wear your clothes once in awhile hehehehehe. I know you miss me and that is why I can still feel you near. I was going to make you cake tomorrow but I will be too tired from work so I think I will make some “putos with leche flan” and bake your fav cake this Saturday when I am off, ok? Have you seen our garden lately? Have harvested a few bell peppers and blueberries. Tomatoes are not ready and the hot peppers are still babies :). We have a lot of daisies and other flowers, ( don’t know the names of the rest of the flowers growing in the garden?) wow, so nice, so pretty :). 
Was listening to your song "Carolina On My Mind" the other day and I shed some tears...missing hearing your voice, your singing, your guitar playing...:( :( :(...oh Lordy! Since tomorrow is your 2nd anniversary, I expect you to be in my dream tonight, I demand, hahahahaha!!! No ifs and buts,bro, period! :) :) :).

Your only “ratle” sister...I love you Dong!

Pa, isang taon na pala? Ibig sabihin mahigit isang taon na nang huli ka namin nakausap at nakita sa videocall. Ang lungkot balik-balikan ang mga pangyayari. Alam ko Pa, masaya ka na diyan,. Kami rito wag ka mag-aalala sa amin, alam ko kasi bago ka mawalan na ng hininga na nagwoworry ka siguro papaano mangyayari sa aming lahat ng mga anak mo at kay mama, gayundin sa mga kapatid nyo po, pero wag ka mag-alala ayan nakakasurvive kami kahit malungkot, masakit, ngunit pag iniisip naming nakalaya ka na sa sakit na dulot ng malubha mong sakit at operasyon, ay naiibsan ang mga sakit na yun. Dala dala ko lahat Papa ang huli nating mga naging usap nun, may 2 tayong paguusap na nairecord ko pa,. Di ko man naiisip na darating ang oras na mawawala ka sa amin ay nirecord ko kasi kako para paggaling mo ipaparinig ko yun muli sayo. Ngunit, ako na lang pala ang makakarinig, kami rin nila mama. Paglaki ni Alexa, ipapadinig ko po sa kanya rin para alam nya kung gaano kaganda ang speaking voice ng kanyang lolo Nehru. Lalo na pag umawit ka... Sobrang miss na miss kita Papa!!! I love you...
