"It seems like forever since you have been gone mom. I love and miss my comforter so much! You used to call me your comforter when you are the one who is all of our comforter, our counselor, our prayer warrior, you are our everything! If it were not for you and mom and dad we would not be here and would not be the woman that I am. It is your strong faith and trust in God that kept all of us safe and together. I am extremely blessed to have you and dad as my parents and the beautiful brothers and sisters that I have, especially my sissy. I love and admire her so much and cannot thank her enough from the bottom of my heart in taking such good care of you. She went above and beyond and sacrificed her life for you without complaining. I am so grateful for her and Vanessa and Suzie in helping take care of you 24/7. I know God is going to bless them more abundantly for their acts of love and selflessness. As I continue to pray for our family just as you did on a daily basis, I know God will keep us all together in unity. Thank you mom for being our amazing and phenomenal mother and continuing to watch over each and everyone of us from heaven as our guardian angel. You are the true definition of LOVE just like Jesus Christ!!  
Mahal kita at buon puso at mundo!!!

1CORINTHIANS 13
THE GREATEST GIFT IS LOVE
1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. 2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned,[a] but have not love, it profits me nothing.

4 Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; 5 does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; 6 does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; 7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

8 Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part. 10 But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away.

11 When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. 12 For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known.

13 And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love."

"My most precious mother, It was a blessing to spend time with you and dad at the cemetery for Mother's Day! It feels peaceful and serene to be there and feeling the fresh air and reminiscing over memories of you. I wish you were here especially this time of year now that Angelica, Cristiana and Jakey will be graduating soon. I am so very proud of them and I know you would have been proud of them as well. I am very sad as I dread the day they will be going off to college but yet happy for them.  I also wish you were here to give me your tight hugs and big kisses to comfort me as you were always my comforter.
