12th Anniversary of Philip Neri Rodrigues joining the Lord

Born :  25th April, 1940
Left for heavenly abode :  3rd March, 2011 

It is 3rd of March yet again, and your 12th anniversary
Feels like it is ages since you have left us
Losing you left us with a void, and nothing could replace you
3rd of March 2011 death came like a thief to snatch you away
Which we hardly realized that you would be taken away.

You had touched countless lives in your lifetime,
And even after you have gone, you live through your good deeds in the minds of many
Konkani Sugandh album brings back all the memories of your feelings and truth of life.
Your loss has left us with an aching hole which never fills up
And your memories will never fade from my heart.

You are alive through my prayers and wishes day in and day out
I feel the emptiness of your absence every day,
But it is especially this day when my heart becomes very heavy with sadness
On this day, I cherish the virtuous life you had lived and the memories you have left for us.
Your love never truly leaves us and the sweet memories are our strength to carry on.

We remember you and miss you on all special occasions
And how we wish you were here
You left here alone, and I cannot wait to reunite with you, darling,
Sending you love on your anniversary of joining the Lord.


Fondly remembered by wife Jessie Rodrigues and family
