My lola died recently and i was asked to give the eulogy. On the day of the burial, I could not come up with anything so i wrote my lola a letter. And so it goes....

Dear Lola,

Did I ever tell you the story about God's garden? Someone once told me that we all belong to God's garden and we are his flowers. He takes care of us, watches over us, takes out the weeds in our lives and makes sure we are all well. And when we've bloomed in a way that is beautiful and perfect in his eyes, he takes us away from his garden and brings us with him in his home.

You have a beautiful soul, Lola. I am so grateful to God because out of all the Lolas in the world, he gave me you. Lola, thank you for loving me the way you do. Thank you for all the massages you would give me whenever I feel sick. I will always believe that your touch heals. Thank you for always helping me out, for waiting up for me whenever I go home late at night. Thank you for never failing to say, Ang ganda at sexy ng apo ko!" before I leave the house. Thank you for being so kulit about me bringing baon to work because I refuse to eat breakfast in the morning. Thank you for always asking me to cook you ginisang sayote and adobo. You always loved whatever I cook even when my sisters seem to think otherwise. You are so selfless, isusubo mo na lang, ibibigay mo pa. I love you, Lola. You have taught me to live life to the fullest, to be strong and brave and to go for whatever I want. I will miss you so so much but while I mourn your demise, I find happiness in knowing that you, my Lola, the most beautiful flower in God's garden is in a better and happier place. Please don't stop watching over me from where you are. I love you.

Your crispy pata eating partner,

about moi

Loves the beach, wishes she had more time and money to travel, recently got hooked to climbing mountains, reads anything she can get her hands on, frustrated writer, adores her 3-year-old Lhasa Apso, Tashi, constantly needs caffeine, wonders when she'll quit smoking, and will most likely die due to liver complications from drinking too much (if the cigarettes doesn't get to her lungs first). Can't live without accessories especially big, dangling earrings, shoe freak (aren't we all?), sucker for discovering hole-in-the-wall restaurants, will ingest anything spicy, enjoys giving and receiving massages, addicted to Friends, Sex and the City and CSI, goes gaga over kids, dreams of being alone with Jim Morrison and smoking a joint with Bob Marley. Would love to party with Gwen Stefani, shop with Patricia Field, write poetry with Maya Angelou and have Sting, Nelson Mandela, Mark Twain and Bono over for dinner.
