My parents left for Lucena late this morning to visit my Grandfather (my Mom's Father) who was in the hospital.

Just a few minutes ago I got a call from my Dad, and he had bad news to tell.

My Grandfather passed away earlier today.

All of us in the family fondly called him Itay. Our family holds our reunion once a year, on Holy Week every Black Saturday until Easter Sunday. The last time I saw Itay was in our last family reunion. Although he wasn't at top health back then, he was still all smiles and very much energetic. And even though he succumbed to various illnesses, I will always remember him as that energetic man who welcomed us every year as we visited his house in the middle of the ricefields.

I am writing this in honor of Itay.

You will be missed on this space.
