Internet To Heaven - A Great Love Story That Transcends Even Death

This is a great love story (an actual one) that transcends even death. I know Roy only casually in my blogging activities as the writer of The House of Puroy. I used to advertise at his site through Entrecard. But as I scanned all the other blogs he maintained, one stood out for its peculiarity. Roy dela Cruz was writing to his wife regularly. Now, there's nothing wrong with that, only that his wife has been dead for over a year now. The foreword of his blog- Letters To Mama really touched a soft spot in my heart. Here is his rationale for creating that blog: "My way of reaching out to my wife...even if she is already in heaven...I know that she can read this...cause maybe...just maybe...maybe, there's an internet in heaven." His wife- Nimia died of kidney complications on the eve of Valentine's day over a year ago and left him with three healthy kids. Now Roy serves as their father and mother, taking care of them as though his wife is still alive. You can sense the extreme loneliness and deep longings of Roy for his wife in his letters to his wife posted regularly in his blog and his earnest desire to someday see her again. I included three (3) videos here from youtube- two from Rated K with Korina Sanchez where his love story was featured and one- a tribute to Nimia. Please see these videos to actually sense the great and undying love of Roy for his wife. I assure you, it will be worth your precious time as you will be drenched in tears afterwards.

Hi Mel,

You have beaten me for this post. I was meaning to write about it..anyway, you have presented it very well. Such a touching love story. Thanks for sharing this with other readers.


Kudos for being a good father to your kid, I'm sure wherever your wife is now, masaya na siya.

God bless.

Hi Roy,
I have wanted so much to get in touch with you but both of us are very busy. I just want to say that I understand how you feel and I admire your great love for your wife and your kids. I think your kids need you more than ever since they are already growing. There will come a time when you really have to move on with your life and concentrate on the future of your kids. You will have the chance to meet your wife when the time comes for you to cross the threshold of life and death. Thanks for appreciating the post. God bless you always.

Hi Jena Isle,
Long time no hear my friend. I'm sorry if you also meant to give Roy a tribute and I inadvertently beat you to it. Anyway, you can also do it with a different approach. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always.

Hi Tey,
It's nice that you watched the videos since the post will be grossly incomplete without it. Too bad for my international readers since they cannot understand the videos in Filipino. Anyway, it is indeed a great love story to end all love stories. Thanks for your visit and encouraging comments my friend. God bless you always.

When I hear of someone "loosing" a loved one, the fisrt thing that comes to my mind is "oh, i wish i was able to fill the gap".

I am happy he believe his wife is in heaven and maybe reading his letters.

Pia said...

i've read his blog and wow! not even death can put a stop to the love he has for his dear wife.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Uncle Che,
Actually, this is a poignant love story. Too bad that the videos are in Filipino. You would have shed copious tears if you will understand the video. Thanks for your visit and inspired comments. God bless you always.

Hi sis Pia,
Yes, it's a tragic ending for a poignant love story. I hope Roy can really move on and focus more on his children. Anyway, he will have his chance to be reunited with his wife in heaven. Thanks for your visit and inspired comments. God bless you always.
