Mama

Sadly, on the 20th of February my mom in law passed away. We flew back home on the 21st of February to attend her funeral and be with hubby's family members in Papar. Although we were all saddened by her loss, it was comforting to know that she did not suffer in her death. My sister-in-law, Lily, who was with her at the time of her passing said that she fainted while they were sitting in the lounge watching TV. She never regained consciousness  after that and was announced dead at the hospital.

I am glad that hubby managed to talk to her a day before she died. As usual, Mama asked hubby when we were coming home and when hubby told her "2 bulan lagi Ma", she said "Ohh..". Little did we know that Mama couldn't wait for our return.

Hubby is handling her passing remarkably well, even better than I could ever imagined. During the funeral, he held back his tears and even consoled other mourners who were too upset by her loss. I know that it is his own faith, knowing that Mama is in a better place, that gives him the strength to be strong. 

Mama was a lovely, talkative person who had a generous, kind heart and she always had the utmost faith in God. That is how she will be remembered and that is what I will tell Alden and Alva when they grow up. Rest in peace Mama. You will always be in our hearts.
