Nostalgia # 14 - Rose's GrandPa

When I first met Rose in person, she took me to the place where her father grew up and I got to meet her grandfather who was 90 years old that time. It was an honor to have meet him and I am glad that I was able to because few years after Rose migrated, he died.

He seemed to be a very nice man. According to Rose he is very hardworking and religious. He knew how to carve woods and stuff. He was also talented in strumming guitar and banjo.
The second and last time I saw him was during Rose's Dad's funeral.

it's great that you took time to meet the family. grandfathers are influential in Filipino families. traditionally, we pay respects to them more than we do to our parents. :p
