Even though I wasn't able to spend time with grandma physically, dad always talked about how loving and selfless mother she was. I am saddened by the fact that i wasn't able to meet her in person, but i will forever cherish our brief phone calls whenever we had the chance. Rest easy grandma. We may be far away from one another, know that you will always be remembered and forever be in our hearts. Sending lots of love from the Philippines 🤍

Grandma was my heart. She was a sweet little lady who always kept me laughing. I enjoyed our phone conversations and we would talk for hours. I'm sad that I could not physically be with her to converse, but phone conversations were just as good. I'm at peace to know that she has received her crown of life. I will never forget the kindness and love she shared with me. She was a blessing and a beautiful spirit. Love you to Life, Grandma!!!💗 From your oldest granddaughter, Wanda
