Tita Linda was always so warm and inviting. She could instantly put a smile on your face. Her laughter was so infectious that you also had to giggle.

My favorite memory of tita Linda was when I first met her at her home in the Philippines. She had a generous spread of mirenda and jokes to tell. She later then moved to the states and still had the same love and attention. She would always make sure I put on slippers when I would visit their home. I get the slipper thing from her and make sure everyone that visits my home has slippers ❤

We will see you again tita Linda.

Most unforgettable encounter with Ate Linda was when she pop my boil on my head when I was 10 years old.
After that, I felt better. Still don't sink in that she's gone. Always remember The loud laughter and still calling me up to now with my childhood nick name " Patis". Will remain not only in my heart but in my memory forever.
Goodbye for now and see you in the resurrection day.❤️

About my grandmother

Shared by Luke Lagpad on March 30, 2021
I don't exactly recall when did I first met her, But I always know that she was always there for me and the others before she started moving out and working in the states. I've always loved her cooking when I wake up, Cooking breakfast for all of us. I always feel like I'm at home whenever she was there. But I can't do anything since she's working abroad. So I simply just waited for her to come back and stay with us again. I was always happy for what she has given to me, Especially as a reward for what I do and what I achieve. I'm grateful for the gifts 
she has given to me, And I must not take them for granted for they are precious and valuable to me. I laughed a bit when she started spanking the life out of my father when he started punching me for no reason. It does mean that she always cared and loved me. But, How can I repay her back? I can just do my part and study, Do what I do best and always be happy. For me, That's what she always wanted from me to be a good person. And that's the only thing I can repay her with. I miss you a lot, I love you and I will never forget you. You will always have a place in my heart. Thank you for everything, Lola. 

Our Dearest Mamu

I've met Mamu when I was just 22 years old, being an introvert I don't know what to say to her or what to act around her. But she made me feel so welcome feeling ko nga sya pa yung nag-adjust para lang maging komportable ako. Over the years naging very close yung relationship namin, mother-daughter, barkada, ka-tsismisan atbp. May mga kakilala ako na nagtatanong sa akin na nag-aaway ba daw kami kasi yung sa kanila daw hindi daw ganun yung relationship nila sa mga partner ng anak nila. Sabi ko never kasi ang laki ng respeto ko sa kanya para gumawa ako ng ikasasama ng loob nya.In fact kahit nasa States sya, nag-papaalam pa ako kung ano at saan kami pupunta. Mamu is very kalog, yun ang pinag-kaiba nya sa mga ka-age nya. She's very loud, yung ingay nya umabot sa ikatlong kanto ng village.Very opposite yung ugali namin ni Mamu, she's madaldal tapos ako hindi.Never syang nag-sungit unless na bibigyan mo sya ng dahilan. She's also very generous,  sa time, sa care, sa love at sa lahat na meron sya. She's also very protective sa amin, sa mga anak nya at mga apo. Dragon si Mamu pag may umapi sa amin. Dila lang ang walang latay. Mahal na mahal din nya yung 2 apos nya, she spoiled them rotten pero takot si Luke at Tyler sa Lola nila. She's strict pero nasa lugar. Very patient, sobra. Ma-diplomasya, hanggang sa kaya nya. Very forgiving. Very strong. And the best Mamu and Lola in the world. I love you Mamu, hindi ako pala-salita pero right now I'm so heart broken. Ma-miss ko yung tatawagan mo ako ng dis oras para lang makipag-tsismisan. I promise na I'm going to take care of Luke, na-alala ko pa yung sinabi mo sa akin dati na, wala kang ibang hihingin sa akin kundi wag kong pababayaan si Luke. I Love you and I will never forget you.Thank you for everything....
