I attended the funeral (my first Jewish funeral) and his family and friends spoke so eloquently about how much they held him in high esteem and it got me thinking about how I lived my own life. I felt so sad for Nava, she was very close to her brother and really looked up to him. I never met him but I went to support Nava anyway. I happened to bump into an old co-worker as well, Eva, who moved to the Grand Caymans with her husband 4 years ago. It was nice to see them again, although I wish it wasn't in that situation.
RIP Oded. May you find the rest and peace you so deserve.
This morning, I woke up and was checking my emails and found an email from my aunt from early this morning letting us know that my Guama (maternal grandmother) passed away last night. She was sick for a long time and although I feel sad that she was gone, I am glad she is not suffering anymore.
My aunt has flown into the Philippines and I was worried for my mom too so Vic and I sent Chloe over with Johann so she could keep my mom company tonight.
My mom is trying to get a flight back for Friday and hopefully all the pieces fall into place and she's able to get a flight confirmation. She plans on going back for two months - not sure how her work is going to react or whether her landlord will hold her place?
If you could keep her in your prayers as well as all my family back in the Philippines, it would be appreciated.
RIP Guama. May you find the rest and peace you so deserve.
