Our beloved Mama passed on September 25, 2017. She lived an amazingly, wonderful and beutiful life of 86 years. Her life was filled with incredible challenges and extraordinary happiness. From the streets of Manila, to the fast pace Hongkong, and finally unwinding into the comfort and luxury of peace and serene life in California.

In 2008, Mama was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, the doctor gave us a survival deadline of 5 years. She survived and surpassed that. On Jul-24, 2017. The same doctor gave us a new deadline of 30 days. She survived past that dreadful day. From then on, we lived lives on a day by day, minute by minute. We made every possible way to make her very limited days as enjoyable and as happy.
Her will to survive grew stronger, as her brothers and sisters in Christ continued to pray for her health. The month of August and September saw how God has granted favor to our Mama. On Sep-8 -- against many friends' and family's disapproval, against all odds -- We flew from Los Angeles to Hong Kong and landed in Manila. It was a stressful and tedious flight. Yet, it was all worth every minute of it. For 6 long days in Manila, she was in extreme happiness. Visits by close and distant relatives, younger brothers, children and all her grandchildren, and most importantly, meeting her closest and best friend Bin Giok, her high-school and college classmates, and finally on the last day, meeting her teacher of 60 years ago!
On Sep-18, Mama flight touchdown in LAX, California. On Sep-25, after surviving 2 life-deadlines, Mama took her "Final Flight" - above the clouds, and unto the Light, and join Papa.
We love you Mama, we love you Ama.
