Dear Lord.

Our hearts are broken today. We lost our husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend after his long and courageous battle with cancer. We now leave him in your tender care.

He was born in the Philippines to Francisco and Aurora Jamir, the sixth of eight children. He served in the U.S. Navy for 20 years, made even more valiant considering he suffered from motion sickness. He proudly served in the military and worked tirelessly, even after retirement, to support his wife Teresita and two daughters, Joy and Jenny. A selfless and humble man with "I" and "me" removed from his vocabulary, he was known to leave an hour early to pick up his grandsons, Christian and Jenson, from school. When asked why he waited in a hot car in the Texas heat, he would grab his handheld fan and insist that he had to be first in the carpool lane. His grandsons would not have to wait for their "Lolo." Because no one is perfect, he was also known for his weakness in spending too much time or money (frequently both) at Home Depot on plants for his garden, driving his wife of 47 years crazy.

Taking his last breath on Earth, he was surrounded by his devoted wife, daughters, grandsons, son-in-law John, sisters Catalina and Tessie, and beloved nieces and nephews. Taking his first breath in Heaven, he was reunited with his parents and cherished brothers, Reynaldo and Romeo. After a lifetime of his loving and caring for others, we ask that he now bask in Heaven's luxuries, eating his favorite foods, trading old Navy stories with his brothers, and watching only first-run episodes of Dateline.

To our husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend, we say "Mahal kita. Hanggang sa muli nating pagkikita." Our hearts will remember.

We all have uncles and then there are those uncles who become our favorites.  In the Jamir Clan, we have plenty of those uncles who remained close to our hearts as we were growing up.  They connected with our family on the Reyes side and made sure  their presence was felt in our household when available.  As I was growing up, Tio Gani was one who would visit us while he was vacationing in the Philippines.  I fondly remember how handsome he looked, sharp and always with his friendly smile.  Being a youngster, then, I used to think how good-looking he was.  He visited us in San Pablo City, Laguna as well as in Alvarez, Sta Cruz, Manila.  He would talk with us and carry on a conversation.  He appeared to be a willing uncle who listens and always had good things to say.  So when our grandparents take us to Cavite, we would of course, look for “Tio Gani” and be discouraged that he was not there vacationing.

We last saw him last March 23, 2015 together with our other favorite uncle, Tio Romy.  Time passed by so quickly as we aged, any minute, any moment we spent with our beloved uncles were precious and memorable.  I was happy to have had an opportunity to see them, then.  Thanks and Kudos to Ate Tess and the family for making an effort to meet with us for lunch and eat “halo halo” for dessert.  I firmly believe that they are looking over us, together with Uncle Reny (who was more of my dad’s league) who also had been a frequent household name among uncles from Binakayan.  WE will surely miss all three uncles, I sincerely hope they know that they were loved, respected, and esteemed.  Farewell, Tio Gani… Rest In Peace, enjoy Eternal Bliss.
