Tiyo Sito Farewell

Today is one of the many situation that I really don't know what to do but I need to be strong and be firm.  Most of the people close to us are clinging to us emotionally and financially.  I know my immediate family cannot offer much with regards to monetary support.  The only thing right now that we can offer is the shoulder to cry on and a prayer for everyone for God's blessing, guidance, and His comforting love.

It was 3:00 AM this morning that my sister knocked on our door.  I'm not sure what's the problem but it is seldom that my sister knocks on the door at 3:00AM in the morning.  I opened the door and the first word that came out of her mouth is that "Tito Sito is dead".  She then followed that our mother was crying and sobbing intensely, she was crying but there were no tears coming out of her eyes, she was chilling, and some part of her body are already numb.  We did comfort her with the news that she heard but she couldn't bear the news that caused her to faint.   We manage to calm her down.

We began the text and call brigade, informing most of our relatives that we can inform about what happened.  We're not yet sure of what really happened, all that we know is that our Tito (Uncle) is already gone.  We try to make everyone inform in a very subtle way because there are some, like my mother, who might take the news very badly.  Some of them do have medical conditions.

As per my cousin's story her father was on his way home when the accident happens.  He was riding the jeepney hanging at the rear end (we call it "sabit").  It is commonly done when there are no more seats and there are lots of passengers.   According to people who witnessed the accident  Tito Sito loose his grip and fell off the jeepney and was run-over by the next jeepney which was having a race with the other jeepney.  Tito Sito was dead already when brought to the hospital.  The driver was already brought to jail and the jeepney was impounded.

My Uncle's family don't have much finances.  They don't really know where to get money to pay for the morgue and for the coffin but God is gracious enough to touch the heart of some people.  The owner of the funeral parlor was a friend of Tita Lita's (wife of Tito Sito) cousin which gave them discount on all the services and the coffin.  Another one is the owner of jeepney provided a down payment to get our Uncle's body and be brought to their house.  It is truly a blessing that these people are touched.

Aside from me being their comforting them I wanted to share a little bit of help by posting this blog and seek help from kindhearted people who are willing to share their blessings for my Uncle's family.   I would be grateful for the help that the blogging community will share even it is just small. You can send your monetary help through here....
