A Moment of Silence to Say Goodbye

Last moments goofing around with my cousin in SoCal in March 2012

You may have noticed an eerie silence here for the past few days. Yes we have been silent. We just lost someone so dear to us and we went silent in his honor and to grieve. Though this is hard for me to write, my heart is aching and I'm tearing up, I want to take this moment to give tribute to him, my favorite cousin, because he so deserved it. His sudden, unexpected death pains us a lot and I want him to know we love him and we miss him so much in spite of him thinking the world hates him and his life has lost its meaning.

I always say life is not short. It's just unexpected. His demise was unexpected...

It pains me that my family and I can't be there for his funeral barred by very expensive plane airfares. So in our own little way, please bear with us as we take this moment to say goodbye and cope with another loss.

Life is unexpected. Cherish each moment you have. And please reach out to those who you think may need some love and kindness today. It may just make a whole lot of difference to that person more than you'll ever know... It may just save a life...


  1. Im so sorry for you loss. Losing a loved one is never easy! My prayers are with you and your family.

  2. I'm so very sorry for your loss. Praying for strength for you and your family at this very difficult time. (((hugs)))

  3. Oh Maricris! I am so sorry for your loss and am thinking of you and your family during this very difficult time. Sending lots of love and hugs your way until I see you to give them to you in person!
