Being a member of the Secular Franciscan Order was no easy task. I saw in your life how dedicated you were in your prayer life.
You are my model. I pray that God's Mercy be upon you and your family. When you get to paradise, please pray for us.

Rest in peace Nanay Pining🙏🙏🙏 No more pain....no more suffering.
Our condolences and prayers to our Kumareng Ebim (Celeste) and to the whole family.
Nanay Pining is one of the strongest woman I've known. She is always happy and always with a smile. She loves cooking and sharing her favourite food. She reminds me of my Nanay who always likes to entertain and feed people.
Please say 'Hi' to our Nanay and Tatay in heaven.
We love you❤️
