Dear Sage, Tomorrow is your Lola Helen's 9th Anniversary. She passed away before you were born... Even before your Mommy and I got married. But you know what, Anaki? I'm sure she is smiling down on us from heaven this very minute. She is very, very ecstatic to see me so Happy with all of you. To be surrounded by overwhelming love is what she wished for me. It is what I wish for my loved ones too.
It is also your Tita/Ninang/Yaya Deeai's special day. May you also be surrounded by overwhelming love for the rest of your life, Di.
