Requiescas in pace, Mama

mass

Mom was laid to rest today. She was seventy-two years old. We said Mass for her at St. John Marie-Vianney Parish Church before bringing her to Heaven’s Gate. Several families came together that day to send her off: the Esmeralda’s, Miranda’s and Romano’s of Guimba, the Lopezes of Kamuning, Tambulig and Mangatarem, the Cuaresma’s of Tarlac, the Sanchez’s of San Juan, the Climaco’s of Quezon City, the Lunar’s of Cuenca, the Augustinian family …
