It would have been your 61st today Tatay. I am trying to muddle through the sad feeling celebrating your 61st without you on earth because I know, you are celebrating it with joy and there is nothing better than celebrating it with Jesus. And that is something we should celebrate as well.
Paul said in Philippians 1:21, to live is Christ, and to die is gain. Although it maybe painful to the ones left behind, but this passage is just telling me that death is not the end. It is simply a beginning of a much much better life in eternity.
