Good-bye Nanang


Mahirap ang mawalan ng ina.

( May 3, 1929- June 11, 2008)

My Nanang, died peacefully today with her children by her side. She was an exemplary mother to me and my five other siblings; a doting grandmother; and a loving wife to my father, Florencio (who pre-deceased her). She was a dedicated public school teacher and principal who was respected and beloved by her students and colleagues. My Nanang taught all her children to make use of their talents and to be the best that they can be. Her moral strength, determination, humor and practical ways during times of difficulty was always an inspiration to those around her.

Our family mourns her loss and celebrates the meaning of her life and the love that touched others through her work. We feel blessed that in the face of the inevitable she went peacefully on to her journey, without suffering, surrounded by the family she nurtured and loved. We ask that you, our friends, join us in offering prayers for the eternal repose of her soul.

Interment will be in Linay, Zamboanga Del Norte. The burial will be on 18 June 2008.
