The family sold everything - - jewelries, properties, fund investments - - to finance the cobalt treatments and chemotherapy sessions. When all that was left was the house where we live, Dad told Mom to stop and let go. Maybe he felt it was coming even though he was fighting it…. my mom needed him, the family needed him…
I remember it so clearly. We were woke up by Mama (my Dad’s eldest sister), and with her crying and praying the rosary, I knew it was the dreaded time. We gathered around him and I heard Mom say, “It’s okay, Jess. You may go. Kaya ko na.” With those words, Dad breathed his last.
I like to think that up to the end, Dad thought of Mom. He just waited until the time that Mom could let go and accept things. He was the greatest fighter ever with her love.
