Hi everyone. It’s been a while since I last wrote.
Today I missed a lovely person and I'd like to talk about him. He’s my father-in-law, the late Mr. Thaddeus Manson. I am very lucky to have a wonderful father-in-law. At the age of 70s, he enjoyed working with people and live actively and independent at the kampung. He loved mingling with young people and always perceive things from a positive point of view. Indeed he’s a person with young heart.
In June last year, he suffered a heart attack. After discharged from the hospital, he moved to stay with us. He gradually recovered and continued to stay with us. During his stay, we used to talk about many things in life – love, life, family during his younger days.
At times I asked for his guidance on how I should overcome certain matters in life, and he would gladly advise me. I truly adored him. Besides, he’s a good cook too. A lot of times, he would reach home early and prepare dinner for us. Eventually I became pampered by him.
Everyday, he would get up early, dressed up and waited for me to be ready, so I can send him to Donggongon town, his usual hangout place to meet his friends and relatives.
Sadly, he had another heart attack, and he passed away peacefully on
Feb 29, 2012. His departure left me, hubby and the rest of our family a big void in our heart. I will forever miss his dearly.

We believe when a person departs physical world, his/her soul will continue its journey. Daddy, wherever you go, I pray for your continuous safe journey of the soul. May God bless you and shower you with abundant Light. Amen.
