Mama, I love you so much. I miss your beautiful smile and your laughter. You always tell me to smile more often, laugh more often, be happy and not to worry too much. The days and years to come will never be the same without you but your unconditional love and care and the unfailing respect for one another you imparted to me and my sibs, living up to your example, will be the task of our lifetimes. I know your up there in the heavens above smiling and mingling with the angels and cherubs, still looking after us.
This is not a goodbye.... but see you later.
Here’s our last ride together. Yohoooo!
I love you forever ~~my beloved Mama!

Mama, you were the best mom-in-law. Your smile was very contagious. See you in heaven soon!

It is very painful for me and my brothers see her go but it's comforting to know that she is in the best place -- Heaven where there's no more pain, no more tears, no more sufferings, no more hunger, no more poking, no more machines , Mama is free from all these and she is now with Jesus , her personal Lord and Savior. I will see her in heaven someday and be with her forever.

I will miss my mom so much. She always has the smile on her face whatever she face in life. She would always cheer me up and remind me to always smile as I wake up in the morning.

My mom is a very happy person. There in no dull moment with her. She turns every converstaion or story into laughter. I will miss that.

Lastly, I learned from her to forgive and never allow ill feelings linger for that will keep you smiling and happy!!

To my most beloved Mama, I love you and I will miss you so much. I will see you someday in heaven with Jesus.

One of the most precious moments is when we spend quality time with mama, enjoying her home cooked meals, playing rummy and just talking for several hours reminiscing our memories together. I will miss our chat on the phone everyday and asking her for some good 'ol recipes.
