My Dearest Grandpa,

One year ago today, you woke up around 3am. When I opened my eyes to peek in your bed, you were missing! I frantically woke Ian up and told him to go find You. It turned out that you were in the kitchen watching your wrestling. You and Ian watched wresting for hours, laughing and talking about "smack downs," which wrestlers were your favorite and which ones were "clowns," and "what the Rock was cooking."

Around 6am, you kept your promise and you taught me how to make your ham. As you were trimming the fat off of the ham, you said not to throw it away because you were going to make mungo with it. You did not seem sick at all. We were having a great time in the kitchen. It was you, me, Ian, and Jenna. Jenna was the taste tester for your sweet and sour sauce that you glazed the ham with. She loved being a part of cooking with you just as much as I enjoyed it.

When the ham got into the oven, you sat next to Grandma and held onto her tight the rest of the day. She held your hand and sang to you. My mom and I also took turns holding your hand. You don't know how much I want to go back to holding your hand. Ever since I was a little girl, I held your hand because it made me feel safe. "Tabin, tabin Grandpa" you would say to me as we took our morning walks up and down the street of Epsilon, as we crossed the street, or anywhere we would go.

"Time heals all wounds," does not seem to be true because it has been one year without you, Grandpa and my heart has yet to be put back together. One year without you seems like eternity. Words cannot explain how much I miss you.

I want to thank you for being with us today. As Jenna and I were sitting in my moms room talking about Grandma and Jenna's birthday, you decided that you would show us that you were with us by flashing the lights. Then, you "beeped" the fire alarm for us 3 times. And then you let Jenna's kitty cat "meow" really loud for us. After this, we went to your house to pick flowers from your garden to bring to you. We visited you at the cemetery and talked with you. Later on in the day, I went to the gym. I was putting my purse in my locker and I found a penny and a nickel.

I miss you so much and I love you forever,
Your baby Jessica

Dearest Grandpa,

Today, exactly one year ago you taught me how to make your bibingka. I have tried several times to make it by myself, but I just cannot get it right! Each time I make it, I replay that moment we had together in my head. I try to do the exact steps, yet it never comes out as delicious as yours. Maybe it was just your touch that made it better.

Also, one year ago today, they delivered your hospital bed to your house. When you knew they were coming, you told me to stay in the kitchen with you. And I did. We watched TV together, while waiting for the bibingka to bake. I put my hand on top of yours as you flipped back and forth from wrestling to fishing. I could sense that you were nervous about your new bed. So was I. I tried my best to talk with you and keep you from getting anxious or scared. I hated seeing fear in your eyes. When the bibingka was finally done, you were back to smiles. You said to me, "Now you know how to make it!" Then you said, "Tomorrow I will teach you how to make ham. After that, I'll teach you how to make sinigang. Then... what else?" I told you that I wanted to learn how to make your shrimp with asparagus. And you said, "Oh. That one, okay. Shrimp with asparagus. By then, I should be okay."

I hope you enjoyed your party that we had for you today. All of your friends came and had a good time. Take out food will never compare to your cooking, and no party will ever be the same without you.

I just want you to know that I am still praying for you every night. Although my heart is still broken, I pray that you are at peace.

I love you Grandpa very much and I miss you more every day.

Love always,
Jessica
