I used to live with Apu Cion when my family and I moved from Japan to California. She used to take care of me because my siblings would be at school and my parents would be working. Though there was a language barrier, she never failed to make sure my needs were fulfilled and that I was healthy. Apu used to feed me grapefruits with sugar and peanuts while watching Tom and Jerry, she introduced me to pandesal with coffee, and she unknowingly taught me how to be kind at all times. I’m sorry that as I got older I portrayed myself as disdainful and inconsiderate, and I’m sorry that I never visited you as often when I should have. I will always be thinking of you Apu, thank you for everything.

One of my fave memories of apu was when I was younger she would feed me like A LOT of food and I would say no more but she would still put food on my plate. When I was growing up and going to her house she always asked if I was fed and how is school. I can always see her walking outside from her room with a smile and just hearing her say “ Hi Ren “ and she waves too. Through all the times I took her to her doctor appointments she would say “ let me buy you food “ she has the purest kind heart that I’ll never forget. We have over probably tons of selfies and videos from Snapchat one thing I’ll never forget about apu was how caring and loving she was to everyone. I love you apu. I miss and love you!

When I was a kid, not even old enough to go to school yet. I was her youngest grandchild at the time. Apu would be the one to not just watch me but take care of me. When my mom used to work late night I remember Apu cion would lay down next to me and snore pretty loud til she got home. Now I just think about her in my head and I see her face, looking up at me with her pretty smile.. I still can’t believe that from now on, when I walk into the house that I grew up in with you, I won’t be able to bring you flowers on mother’s day or your birthday anymore. I hope you hear me speaking to you when I do, and know that I love you forever Apu. You gave me a piece of your life so I could grow up. When you left a piece of my soul went with you. I love you Apu cion.

I retired from the US Navy and didn't work a whole year. One week after she learned that, she tried to give me money. She worried that my family will not have enough to pay for our bills. Of course I graciously declined. That was how generous she was to her children, and grandchildren. She's likened to the widow in the Bible who offered her last penny to the Lord. I miss you already Inang. Thank you for the love and care. Don't worry about us all but rest in our Lord's Eternal Peace.
