Lola went home to the Lord on February 13, 2018. Last night, I asked Lolo what is the secret for staying together for 58 years. He said, “Bigayan lang. Pag masama pakiramdam ng isa, huwag mong sabayan. Kapag galit, ganun din. Bigayan lang at patawaran.” Give and take. Forgive.
He went on to say that he sees a lot of couples nowadays give up easily. “Konting away lang, nagwawala na!” Through the years, Lola was very sickly. We watch thLolo was patient every time she feels pain.
We are blessed to see a marriage that endures all for love.
To have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death do us part…
We will miss you, Lola.
