Letter #1 from Bola

Hi Auntie!

I’m glad Ate made this page for you. I read it every day, at least three times a day. Especially the eulogy she wrote.

I wish you and mommy went to Costa Rica to celebrate Ate & Kuya’s wedding. I wish you were here when Kristine surprised mommy when she announced she was pregnant. I wish you were here to celebrate my graduation last month. I just wish you were here. I still can’t stop crying every time I realize you’re not here with us anymore.

I remember accompanying mommy to the hospital when I got out of school early. The days you were improving made me smile, and you still made jokes. The days you weren’t doing well, all we could do is pray for your health to get better.

Two weeks ago, during Kristine’s baby shower, Nevaeh said she missed you a lot. She also said, “As much as I want Auntie Aida here with us still, crying won’t bring her back. She’s happy, and eventually we will all be together as a family again with God.”

It’s crazy that an eight-year-old can say things that can help heal wounded hearts.

I looked at the date today, and saw your birthday is around the corner. I wish I could’ve made you proud while you were still with us. There’s so much I want to share with you. If you could hear my thoughts, then you already know what I want to say.

I love you, Auntie, and miss you so much.
