It has been 8 years. I have no idea how we all climbed out of our grief but here we are.
Should I remember you with sadness? No. I remember you with love. You were very much loved, Echik. You still are.
A lot has happened since then. Would you believe that I went to stay with Mommy and Dad? I even dated and now I have a boyfriend.
Here’s even bigger news. Joshua has a girlfriend now! Were you surprised? We all were. 😁😁😁
Chongee is also dating now. That should take the cake. Can you imagine our baby sister getting lovey-dovey with anyone? I know, right? Boggles the mind.
Liam is growing up well. He’s so tall now, Chik. I’m sure he will be as tall as you are or even more so. Much like you, he’s quiet and well behaved. Unlike my little one who is now 10 years old!
Echik, I wish you’re happy there in heaven. We are doing what we can here amidst this pandemic. We also have family devotional every weekend. It’s nice. Somehow, it also makes me miss you more.
Do you miss us? Do you remember me? Do you think of us? I don’t know. I want to believe that you don’t. I want you to be carefree and happy there. I want you to be at peace.
I know you have lived as fearlessly as you could. You also never lost your faith and your strength. You were confident and brave. You continue to inspire me and make me strive to be a better mom, a better sister and a better daughter.
I miss you, Anna. I love you. We will continue to pray for you. I hope you wil continue to pray for us, too.
I love you, Echik. You’re forever in our hearts.
