Edit: Before I leave, I made a new tutorial for Photoshop, which is a wallpaper and coloring tutorial. Hope you guys like it. 🙂
Yes, as the title suggests, my grandmother passed away just this October 22, 2009, due to diabetes. Actually, she’s not my real Grandmother, though I consider her as one; she’s my late Grandfather’s brother’s wife. So we’re going to Bohol to attend her burial.
I came from school that day and was wondering why they were eating with a gloomy look on their faces. I was listening to the music then and was dancing and abuprtly stopped when my Mom said “You should stop it. Your Lola Ponsa died just this morning.” And my mouth dropped just like that.
When I was a kid, we go to Bohol every summer and would always drop by their house often. It was near the beach – which was free – so we’d always stay there for about 5 days before coming back to Cebu with a sunburn. She’s always nice to us. Everytime we went to the beach and forgot to bring something, she’d ask their helper to give it to us, whether it’d be a towel or a lunch so we could spend the whole afternoon in the beach without starving ourselves.
I haven’t gone there for quite some time now, since we moved when I was 14, so what I recently saw was her picture – and she was thin. We were even planning to staying there during summer, and now, we would go there to see her in a coffin and attend the burial, which makes me really sad.
I guess what they say is right: memories would make you sad when you remember them. The things she did for us, the watching of late night movies, the praying of the Rosary together… All those memories are rushing back to my mind and I can’t help but smile, despite of myself.
I’ll be back on November 3, since we start classes on the 4th. I’m finalizing my writing portfolio, and it’s like a joint portfolio with some other friends. If you wanna join, just drop me a comment. 🙂
