I love you Inang, we love you. Am so sad today...no words, i am so aching for words just how terribly am missing you right now.

Just want to share these photos of us taken last July 2007. It's my favorite from all of our photos together. There's quite a story behind it. You see we share the love for nail colors. She won't go to her doctor's appointment every month unless her nails were done. She likes neutral colors and pink. That day, on the picture, i convinced her to try purple. She hates it, but she'll try it if i go with purple too. I tricked her obviously cos am wearing pink, but after a while she got to love the eggplant color too, said her nails looked dead - pinned by a hammer. hihi. She's feisty and funny and a glamour kind too. She likes all kinds of bling and always asking for my bags. ...oh i love her.

One thing i regret though, i never got to drive her to AMERICA. She suffered from Alzheimer's, so from time to time she wanna pack her bags and go driving and i need not worry cos she'll pay for the gas she said. If only Philippines and America were two hours away, why not?

Last time i saw her, she's in the hospital last week, i said goodbye, said ill see her when she's home. I guess she's home now to where Tatang is. Well, Inang give me at least 50 more years then we'll be reunited again, and ill never forget to bring you the eggplant nail polish.

ps, on my wedding, she wore red polish, though she felt it's a vulgar color, but she did it for me, said it's my day, like a wedding gift for me. We're both red!!!! She's so sweet.

That's so sweet,your story is making me senti! Your grandma's smile reminded me of my grandma( Mama's mom).She's simple(though she loves to put on cologne and powder all the time). She was 95 yrs.old and she died the year before I got married, guess she's tired of waiting for me to finally tie the knot.Thanks for posting this.My prayers are with you and I'm sure your grandma is in heaven right now.Sorry for the long comment.:)
