The video shown on the last night of Tatay’s wake.
A big thanks to everyone who have extended their condolences to the whole family. Last Sunday, we bid our final goodbyes to Tatay (my dad’s father). It’s comforting to see people who want to spend time with the family on the last night of his wake and even until the funeral.
We still praise God in times like this. His promise keeps us encouraged.
Our friends, we want you to know the truth about those who have died, so that you will not be sad, as those who have no hope. We believe that Jesus died and rose again, so we believe that God will take back with Jesus those who have died believing in Him.
– 1 Thessalonians 4:13-14
We all have our fond memories of Tatay. And even though he’s no longer with us, we are confident that one day we will see him again in heaven. Last weekend was a celebration of his life, his love, and his faith.
It was a fine afternoon. Perfect weather. Darel and I took turns in taking these photos (and videos! — soon). Btw, the photos showing Rafa crying doesn’t have anything to do with the funeral. He cried because the maintenance personnel was done with the lawn mower. Haha.
