Missing my father and mother in law this All Saints day!
We are going to visit my in laws tomorrow at the South Cemetery, oh, I am really missing them so much! My mother in law died 4 months before our scheduled wedding last year 2004. While my father in law who dearly loved his wife followed next after a year (2005). My mom and dad in law are really kind to me and don’t tell me I am saying that because I didn’t lived with them since they passed away when I got married, oh no… they are really kind people and my brother and sister in law whom they have lived with for a very long time can attest to that.
I was not that surprised that on the day of their funeral, I saw lots of unfamiliar faces who bid farewell and thanked them since they really touched most people’s life.
Their place at South Cemetery is not that spacious and that the area they were buried is not like the ones in Loyola Park in Paranaque, where it’s all green and clean. Well, I hope in time we can get them a more spacious place.
Last year, my husband and I were thinking of changing their existing plaque to a more personalized and great brass plaques with their pictures on it, but unfortunately, we forgot about it until now, a year after. I am so sorry mom and dad we were so busy with personal things that we forgot of getting you a bronze plaques on your place. I promised that we will make this a priority when we will have another financial blessing.
