the first man in my life

Maj. Antonio Nido Enate
January 17, 1926 - December 08, 2005

It's been more than a month now but it still feels like it was just yesterday.
Thank you for the twenty seven years we've spent together.
Thank you for putting up a good fight battling all your illnesses.
Thank you for letting me, ate and mom take care of you.
And thank you for waiting for me to come home and enjoy you some more.
I know you're an added angel up above now to look upon us.
You will remain in my heart forever.
I love you and I miss you so much, Dad.


More the a month of no posts, no updates. No matter how valid my reason is for being away, i'd still choose to write and update non-stop just so this day won't come. I think i had prepared Mom better than i had prepared myself for this day. Or heck, i don't think anyone could just easily ready oneself for death or a death of a loved one. After my three week vacation in november, i got home very tired and sick, yet happy to see Dad back home from the hospital and enjoying thanksgving with the entire family. I was able to join them at home for a week since i was sick. I can see clearly that Dad was very happy he was home. Barely two days after i started back to work, Dad left us. His wishes was to be taken home back to the Philippines and be burried at his mausoleum and for his three other children to see him. It has been a very tough month for all of us. And a very sad way to end our 2005.

I wish not to frequent this blog with entries such as this. I wish to keep this blog happy from now on.

To all those who went to the viewing and sent their sympathies... thank you.
