|Mommy,you will live in our hearts forever!|
This memorial website was created in the memory of our beloved Mommy, FELICIDAD CRUZ BAUTISTA who was born on March 6, 1929 and joined our Creator on March 2, 2011. We will remember her forever.
She was a devoted wife and mother. She dedicated her life to raising and taking care of her 11 children. Mommy was very loving, thoughtful, selfless, prayerful, hard-working,jolly, forgiving and very appreciative of every little blessing that came her way. She was always young at heart. She could easily relate even to her grandchildren. She was the coolest mom in the world. She had a very good sense of humor and a very light disposition in life, reasons why she never aged. She always looked young. Mommy has always been our best friend.
She taught us all the basic things in life. She was the disciplinarian in the family. She was firm but very kind. We are who we are today because of how she & Daddy brought us up.
Mommy was a lover of music. She was the first singer in the family. At age 80, she was still able to sing so melodiously and had the words of the songs memorized at heart. Her signature song was "What a difference a day makes". Mommy can also do voice impersonation and was very good at it. She was the funniest mom.
Mommy, there are no words good enough to thank the Lord for blessing us with the gift of a mother like you. You had always been our source of strength and inspiration. You were our rock and our refuge. You taught us so many words of wisdom. You had such a childlike faith in the goodness of God. Your legacy will live on as you will live in our hearts forever. We will miss you every day of our life. We will always love you and think about you. Life will never be the same again without you. We honor you for being the remarkable woman that you were.

"Dearest Mommy, It's been 5 years. I can't begin to describe how much I miss you. You are in my heart always. There's not a day that I don't think of you. Sometimes I smile thinking about the good times but sometimes it can be very lonely. Ma, I wish you are still here with us but I know you're happy up there in heaven. I love you and I miss you so much. Happy 5th birthday in heaven."

"Hi Ma, I am listening to your favorite songs right now. This is one of the ways I feel your presence and still feel so connected to you. I miss you and Daddy so much, Thanks for being the Mom that you were to us."
"Ma, it is so hard to not cry every time I think of you. I miss you so much. Thank you for being my best friend. Thank you for your words of comfort and encouragement during those times I was feeling down. Thank you for being my recess buddy when I was in kindergarten. You brought me food every single day and we would sit on the swing in our school and you would ask me how my day was. I don't know how you did it but you had time for each one of your children and still kept the house very neat and clean. Thank you for teaching me all the basic household chores. Thank you for teaching me how to handle stress lightly. Thank you for the stories you shared with us- from the fables to real life experiences-your hardships during the war and how you survived. Thank you Ma for the jokes you told. You were so animated, so lively, so cool & so funny. You had a unique way of relating to your children and grandchildren. Thank you for inspiring us to love music. You were the best singer in the family! Thank you for all your sacrifices, your love& your presence in our lives even up to this time that you're no longer with us. There are so many things I am thankful to the Lord for giving you to us as our Mother- too many to mention. Tonight I hope to see you in my dreams where I can still hug you and hold you. Thank you Mommy for being such a good influence in my life. I love you so much and I miss you & Daddy beyond words. As one of your favorite songs goes "You'll never know just how much I miss you"

"Happy Birthday Mommy! Just finished our prayers then watched the video of your 80th birthday. Jun & I love this video so much because we get to see you and hear you sing. Ma, we're listening right now to your favorites songs. This is a whole day tribute to honor you for the mother that you were- one of a kind! I love you Ma & I miss you so much."
"Another Mother's Day is here,
And I still miss having you near.
You were the best mom you could be,
And I never once doubted your love for me.
I could spend each Mother's Day in sorrow,
Crying and wishing you were here,
But instead I choose to celebrate your life,
A life I still hold so dear.
I know you'd rather see me smile
Than stand here with tears in my eyes.
So I'll do my best to honor your memory,
And you'll live on as long as I am alive.
Happy Mother's day Ma! I miss you so much."
"Hi Mommy. I know that I'm a little late to greet you. But I just wanna greet you a Happy Happy Birthday in heaven. :) I really miss you. I know that I'm one of the naughtiest grandchildren that you ever had but I think that I'm being very naughty when I'm around you. Because your a cool granny. You are always making fun of me. You are always saying that I'm big. Hahaha. Teaser! What a playful granny. :) Now I really wanna be with you again,I want to touch your legs and make haplos haplos with matching powder. Awwwww. I really miss you. :( I love you Mommy. Sorry for all the bad things that I've done. I love you to the bits. :) Can I have a favor? Can you just please watch over me? So I can reach all of my dreams. Hihi. Thanks Mommy. I love you and i miss you. :)"
"You belong to my heart, now and forever. Happy Birthday, dear Mommy! Though we won't be able to celebrate your 85th birthday here together, I know you are happy with daddy and our creator up there. I miss you more each day. There are times when I dream about you and I'll cry and smile at the same time. Though it's been three years, I somehow wish we would have not lost you. I personally have let go but there's not a day that pass by that I don't miss you. In times of difficulty, it's easier when you're around as your positive energy makes the situation lighter. No words can describe how much you mean to each of us, your family. We love you, always have and always will. Happy Birthday! ~"
I know how much you looked forward to your birthday every year and so did we. Even if you're no longer with us physically, we will continue to celebrate your birthday by recalling all the beautiful memories we had with you & Daddy. Thank you for all that you've done for us, for all your hard work, sacrifices, support, forgiveness and for always being there for us. Thank you for your unconditional love. As I am writing this, I can't help but cry. I miss you so much Ma. I wish you were still here with us. Happy 85th birthday! I love you so much Ma."

I am missing you so much today. I wish I could talk to you and hear your voice agaiin. That would be enough to keep me going. Ma, thanks for everything, your words of encouragement, your strength and your happy disposition. You always have a way of comforting me and lifting my spirits. I really wish you were still here with us. I love you Ma. I miss yiou so much."
"Three years ago today was the saddest and most painful day of my life. Suddenly, I felt like it was the end of the world for me. We were not prepared to see you go. It was, and still is, so hard to accept that you had to leave us that soon. I particularly was just starting to make plans on making your life more comfortable and enjoyable. I deeply regret that I was not given a longer chance to make this possible. Even up to now, the thought that you're gone still moves me to tears. How I miss your loving and comforting presence!
Ma, I'm forever grateful to be your daughter. I am who I am now because I have a mother like you. You had given me so much more than I could ever give you back. I just hope you knew how much we appreciate all the sacrifices and hard work you had poured for us. I will always bring with me all the love, the happiness, the values and the memories you've given me. Please continue to pray for us, your children. I love you so much Ma!"
"I miss you, mommy !!! Please pray for us all, specially for Sarah...Pls continue to guide us in our decisions and actions...I love you so much..."

Thank you for teaching me how to be strong and to trust in the Lord's mercy always. As I am writing this I can't help but cry. I miss you so much. I love you Ma. Tell Daddy I miss him too. Pls pray for us all."
"It's been two years but I still miss you so dearly Mommy but I know that you and Daddy are now in the holy presence of our Lord and truly enjoying eternal life. We so love you so much and we are forever grateful to the Lord for giving you to us as our mother."
"It's been 14 months without you. Life is so much different now. I miss your voice, your words of encouragement, comfort and wisdom. I just find comfort in knowing that you are with Jesus now. I miss you so much Mommy. Love you forever."
