Rest In Peace
Posted on: 22nd of February 2004 | Under: Life & Love

How ironic. After posting my deep thoughts on death last week, I was awakened by the news that my lolo (paternal side) passed away early this morning . The fact that I never really knew him (I’ve only seen him twice in my entire life) didn’t stop the tears from adding up to the ones that were already there. Even if he wasn’t around when I grew up, he’s still in fact my lolo.

Despite the pain he brought my dad’s family when he left them, I’m sure he was still a great person. I just wish I got to know him more.

My brother and sister just left with my dad and aunts to go to his wake. I was supposed to go as well, but decided to stay home with my grandma (maternal side) instead.

Rest in peace, lolo. I know you’re in a better place now.

Anyway, I’ll be gone for a while. I think it’s best that I get some time off to get away from things. I need to think things through. School is gradually becoming demanding too. I ought to spend more time concentrating on all the responsibilities tied to being a student. I am in fact doing my last few months of my Interior Design course. I need to focus.

So yeh, I’ll be off. For a couple of days or weeks. I’m not sure. Perhaps I’ll even be back sooner than I plan to.
