Open Letter: From Earth To Heaven

Di lahat ng Tatay may Nanay...

Hi, Pa'.

First of all, I want to greet you a Happy Father's Day. lol...

I hope and I force myself to believe that there's internet or some divine intermediate line on where you are at right now so that you can read this at your own time. (no pressure)

Maybe you are half-wondering why I am writing to you (of all times, ngayon pa...at in English pa... wahahaha). Well, to make it all even... I am also wondering too.

Just to set the records straight, we both know that our Family is no expressive bunch at any given chance. If my memory serves me right, I cannot remember the last time we said "I Love You's " to each other... We do not even hug nor kiss... the best we can do is to tap each other's back at honoring moments... But it doesn't mean that we don't love each other... I mean, you had your first hand proof that that we cling on each other's emotional truth in times of hard situations... wehehehehe... But, I guess maybe that's who we are as a unit... silent but present...

Like a glitch to a perfectly synced system... I can say that I am the most vocal member of our family... (kumbaga kung isa tayong acoustic-pop-alternative band... ehhhh, ako malamang sa malamang ang bokalista... ansaveh???) That's why I kinda felt obligated to update you on the recently-concluded and on-going events on our current lives after your... let's say... quite timely and emotionally well-prepared for departure...

Labergas Family Update... (in bullets para mukhang organized)


  • To start, your youngest son already has your oldest grandson... and ironically, they tried to mash up your names and came up with Bien Martin (whatta lack-slacked monicker...). I have not met him yet... so I have not much to say... I only have high hopes for him and rest assured he will be guided accordingly as he grow older.

  • RC already finished his college degree... not with flying colors though... (di naman tayo masyadong nag expect, di ba?)... Let's just see if he can find his place in the sun after college, but again... no matter what... he will not be left behind, not for anything that we can't handle.

  • As for your already-father of a son, JJ... well, what can I say??? He is restarting his life (sana) after the recent turn of events that brought him momentous changes. Please lead him subconsciously to better maturity and being responsible enough for the family he has started prematurely...

  • RR is still dark-skinned... nothing's change (di na kaya ng Glutha!) He's gearing up to complete his 5-year course in La Salle and plunge to the corporate world right ahead... I've heard it from the grapevine that he will shoulder JJ's tertiary education as soon as possible <cross-fingers>.

  • Going to your well-accomplished sons... JB and Kuya RB are on a juncture of their respective professional lives... They are both taking a big plunge to a different company in the very near future... This could affect our family's financial status dramatically because, if it not yet established, it is very safe to say that they are the bread winners right now... non-arguable. We are also planning to have another Christmas Vacation later this year if everything falls to their proper places in due time...

  • Mama is going to HongKong... (can I have hurray for that?!) I am pretty and I am sure that this would be her first travel outside of PAR (Philippines Area of Responsibility)...and to tell you, she is pretty and very much excited to the core... of course her trip is sponsored by her ever loving and financially-abled sons -Kuya RB for the roundtrip tickets and tour package, JB for the pocket money (tomoh??)... and to include myself- I did most of the leg-work to make her trip as smooth as possible...  Anyways, If you are still worried about her emotional status and stability... I believe she is doing great, even better than most of us... 

  • Nothing is new with me... except with my virtually non-existent bank account and my questionable job qualifications... I am still the same person the last time we saw each other (eye-to-eye)... Got a little thinner (when I say little as in little talaga... mga 1 pound...wahahaha) but still the same me...          

Anyways... now that you are not physically around anymore, even though we are not earthly complete now- as a Family... we still know that you are watching over us and supporting us on each thing that we do... I know this letter is somewhat pointless but I do think that somehow somewhere you are able to read and comprehend this... (Kung nabasa mo man 'to, sign naman dyan... wahahahaha... kahit tatlong kulog at 3/4 na kidlat lang)... Seriously speaking, I guess the whole point of this letter is just to tell you that...
"I Miss You 'Pa"...

Jeff'

... minsan ay Tatay rin... :)
