Indeed, the start of the year hasn't been so good for me and my family. After battling with the so excruciatingly painful illness for months, yesterday morning my brother-in-law, Jimmy has to cast out his final breath with the presence of his whole family inside the car, mobiling while on their way to the hospital yesterday.

I don't live near my family so I only know bits and pieces about his condition, though I know he'd been going in and out of the hospital since late of last year. It was only a couple weeks ago when his doctor finally disclosed about him having a liver cancer along with several complications. Not even once that I've seen him on his condition. The last time we've seen each other was August of last year and and I just heard from my sister that he was confined to the hospital just few days right after we left Davao for Cebu.

I was preparing and were about to take lunch along with my younger sister and my nieces when I got the text message my sister, Joyce (his wife) has sent me yesterday. I was totally stunned! While reading the message, my mind was trying to grasp something I am not certain about. I have to call my sister right away. I need to hear her voice. She was trembling while trying to gather altogether what she has to say. I can feel her pain while I was so helpless. All she asked is for us to come home.

After my father's death 5 years ago, this is just but another major struggle my family has to go through especially for my sister. Its gonna be a long healing process that awaits for her ahead, and I know it's not gonna be easy and for us to be there for her is I think the most important thing we could do for now. We (my sister, Thea and I) are considering of getting a possible way to get home tomorrow either via air or a sea trip...I may not be visible here for several days but when I get a chance, I'll try to stop by to check here once in a while.

A little time to say a little prayer for the soul of my brother-in-law, Jimmy will be greatly appreciated.
