Finally on December 9, 1986 at around 9 AM, with the help of our sponsors all the necessary documents for the wedding were completed. At around 10:30 AM we proceeded to the office of the judge located at the second floor of the Municipal City Hall.
After nine months, Imelda got pregnant. She delivered our first baby angel which was a boy on October 16, 1987. We gave him a name Jeffrey. However, on his nine months on this planet, the boy died. And it took us for almost a year on mourning.
Instead of staying at home, thinking what had happened, my children and I have decided to go out from our comfort zone. With bundle of red roses and some candles, we visited to the cemetery to greet their mom a happy 29th wedding anniversary. After that, we proceeded to visit SM City, Rosario, there we have eaten our lunch at KFC - one of the food courts found on the city mall, took some photographs and have enjoyed some window shopping.
Imelda is now at home in heaven, so happy and so bright, where there is perfect joy and beauty with the everlasting light.
All the pain and grief is over for her now. Every restless tossing passed, she is now at peace forever, safely home in heaven at last.
Do not grieve for her, for now she is free, she is following the path God laid for her. She took His hand when she heard Him call. She turned her back and had left it all.
She could not stay another day, to laugh, to love, to work or play. Tasks left undone must stay that way, because Imelda - my beloved wife has found that place at the close of the day.
If her parting has left a void, then fill it remembered joy - a friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss - these things, she too, I am surely sure she will miss. Do not be burdened with times of sorrow, she wishes you the sunshine of tomorrow. Her life has been full, she savored much - good friends, good times and a loved one's touch.
Perhaps her time seemed all too brief, but do not lengthen it now with undue grief. Lift up your heart and share with her, God wanted her now, He set her free!
Imelda - you are always alive and always be remembered in our hearts. You left us with all your love that we will always cherish as time passes by...Love you much.
