A Letter to Grandpa in Heaven

Countless and massive thanks to you, Lolo Delfin!

You went to your last resting place years ago, but the special moments we shared together continued living in my recollection. You would be physically absent on my remaining days on earth, but you greatly filled my days of infancy until adolescence with love and care. Your aged face that gleamed with childlike delight and hoarse voice that vocalized awakening words lingered in my fresh and youthful memory. I was definitely a fortunate granddaughter for you were my utterly warm-hearted and light-hearted grandfather. You reflectively reiterated that the man was dissimilar from the tree because the man grew weak while the tree grew strong with the passage of time. Your palsied hand wondrously drew a bird in flight and gently beckoned at me as you wished to closely behold my face. My heart graciously contained genuine gratitude as I stayed in your glorious presence. I arrived in your wintertime and you appeared in my springtime, but our precious days and nights together would be in my reminiscence for a lifetime. I wished you dearly felt the little ways I reciprocated your affection. As you beautifully left a permanent mark in my being, I would be forever thankful that you were my grandfather. Though it would not always be your birthday, your death anniversary, or All Souls’ Day, ordinary days sweetly reminded me that I amazingly came from your own flesh and blood. As I would always have you in me, I would fulfill a promise of loving myself as I loved you. Countless and massive thanks to you, Lolo Delfin!
