Being an overseas worker, it has been two years since I last celebrated All Saints’ and All Souls’ Days with my family. Since both of my grandfathers have died, we would either go to Libingan ng mga Bayani or go to Zambales.
On the first of November, I lit this Paschal-tall candle and offered a silent prayer as I remember and pay homage to my grandfathers and other relatives who have passed on.
Tatang Amando, Lolo Juanito, Uncle Alfredo Sr., Auntie Trinidad, see you at the crossroads.
The candle only lasted for 14 hours. Not so great.
