Q: As we cap the celebration of All Saints Day and All Souls Day, the Weekly Question will focus on our departed loved ones. No, I am not asking you to play favorites with the question.
Who among your dearly departed hold(s) a special place in your heart?

I miss my grandparents. I miss my maternal grandmother. I remember when she let me go “fishing” in her small backyard fish pond. I caught a crab using a makeshift bamboo fishing rod. When I was born, my maternal grandfather was already gone. I didn’t have the chance to meet him but my mom showed me many photos of him. I also miss my paternal grandfather. I remember how much he doted on me and my brother when we went to the province for vacation. He loved cooking for us. He always prepared the best crabs, prawns and batchoy.
