Saying Goodbye to a Loved One

The Agasite Family
Edz got the bad news over Facebook messenger that her father lost his battle with lung cancer.  He was 68.  We buried him on Saturday near his home in Villasis, Pangasinan. 

Losing a parent is one of those major milestones in life.  There's life before Dad dies, and then there's life after Dad dies.  At least losing my father was like that.

The Blanco Family
If there's one upside to losing a loved one, it is connecting with other loved ones.  These photos show the two halves of Edz' family.  The top photo has her cousins from her mom's side; the bottom is her dad's side of the family.

Next week she'll get to connect with the O'Connors, as we're heading down to Florida for my brother Kevin's high school graduation.
