Months after tito Chito’s unexpected
passing away last November, (it still doesn’t seem real, it still doesn’t feel
right) at the young age of 59, tita Mimi gave me one of his watches as a
memento. I would have used it but sadly, the watch has stopped working even
with a change of battery. Not wanting to just keep it anywhere, I thought of
having it hanged in a frame made especially for it. It will serve as a
remembrance of my tito Chito. Tita Mimi liked the idea and thought it would be
nice to house most of tito Chito’s personal effects too in a little cabinet and
trusted me to have this done.
I felt happy being able to do
something for tito Chito and for tita Mimi as well. While I designed this based
on the things that tita Mimi wanted kept there, it was a trusted carpenter who
executed my design.
I was happy with the outcome and happier still because Tita
Mimi liked it.
May 27 of this year during tito Chito’s 60th
I gave this to tita mimi as
my present for tito chito.
Happy Birthday tito chito!
I hope my little gift will make you smile from that forever land we call heaven.
PS. No need to say this but I just want it said. I will always remember...
