    My maternal grandpa, “Tatay Pons” was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer when I was in elementary school. It was tough on my family losing him. He gave me my love for music and old Jackie Chan & 007 films. In early 2004, he moved back to the Phlippines when his cancer was stage 3. I didn’t know what that meant back then. Mom said “he’s working too hard here.” So I thought he was just on vacation. I thought he was coming back. In December of 2004, when I was in the 6th grade, he passed away. It was a really hard time for us all. I remember being so sad that Tatay couldn’t come to my band concerts anymore. Still, my family honors him through music. We still remember him, we still miss him.
