"Here is Edward Bear, coming downstairs now, bump, bump, bump, on the back of his head, behind Christopher Robin. It is, as far as he knows, the only way of coming downstairs, but sometimes he feels that there really is another way, if only he could stop bumping for a moment and think of it."
- A.A. Milne (Winnie the Pooh and the House At Pooh Corner)

Sunday, May 8, 2005, 10:30 PMWe left for Paniqui, Tarlac at 12:00 PM today to attend Tiyong Ruding's 2:00 PM funeral. It was a two-hour drive or so until we reached Matalapitap at 2:15 PM, just before the funeral march.
Tiyong Ruding is my mom's 5th elder sibling. He taught me how to drive and disciplined me like a father especially during summer vacations with my cousins, back in my grade school days. After more than three years of struggle with failing organs due to high blood pressure, he rejoined his Creator last May 6 at 3:00 PM.
