Hello, good day everyone!
First of all, I want to thank everyone for coming to celebrate and share my mother’s memory, the gift of joy to us and the pain to say good-bye. But we know she is now at peace with the Lord, where no more pain and suffering. My mother might be gone but she left us a legacy of her endless love, her perseverance, strength, simplicity and dedication to her family. She was always smiling and happy to see you. Very polite yes ma’am yes sir, please sir please ma’am. But sometimes she has her moments and she will lose her cool. But in 5 minutes, 5 minutes she will apologize and say I’m sorry, I’m sorry. She will look at you with her very infectious smile again, laughing as if nothing happens. She will forget all about it, that’s how my mother is, easy going, jolly and happy to be with. You will always enjoy her company and have a good time. She was very grateful, always says thank you, thank you ma’am, thank you sir.
She taught me about the truly precious things in life, to cope the sadness and the beautiful experience and learned how to do my best to the fullest of my ability. Work hard, to be respectful, to be helpful, honest and sincere and all of these are my greatest gifts and pride she instill in me.
Nanang ko, you nortured me with love and guidance. Thank you for raising me this well, strong, honest and up-right, and you always told me to «Always stand-up for what is right, no matter what, even if you stand alone. Must have the courage, the will to bear and fight. Always say fight, fight, fight. Fight to the end. » With these I grow-up so well and that learning taught me and I’m so blessed with the gift of wisdom how to live right and with these Nanang ko I live diligently. It is really an honor to be your daughter and all of these thank you fo a wonderful gift, the best present ever a daughter can received and these I’m forever grateful.
Nanang ko, Thank you, I Love You!
& may you Rest In Peace! Amen 😘♥️🙏

♥️Nanang Ko♥️
My tears are my words that my heart can’t say.
Flooded with heartache, I’m so tormented with anguish and grief knowing that you’re gone.
Thousand words won’t bring you back, neither will a million tears.
I know because I tried, I cried and I’m so helpless.
I wish it was just a dream but it’s like the world has stopped and ended.
You left a memory no one can heal, and a memory of love no one can steal.
When we part, may the flowers fall to the waters. The flowing water may seem a thousand miles away.
When we meet, may the sweet newly scent of flower petals fill the heavens.
The spring scenery is like a dream.
When the wind blows that gently passes through me, I’ll think of you, feel you and cherish you in my heart.
Please watch over me, guide me, my children and all who are so dear to me especially those who truly love and care for me the most.
Nanang Ko, Thank You, I Love You!
And may you Rest In Peace! Amen 😘♥️🙏

Hugs and kisses to my big brother manong Tante, I missed him so much, manong Romeo, manang Caring, grandma Moning, auntie Inyang who came and visited you at the hospital maybe 😃 and all our loved ones. I know you are all having a reunion and a party up-there singing, clapping and dancing where no more pain and suffering but where pain free and happiness is unending.😘♥️

Biography

Avelina Ramos Tutop was born in Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte, Philippines, on August 13, 1930. She met my Grandfather, Seaver, because they were neighbors. He fell in love with her because not only was she beautiful but because she was so hard working. After courting for two years, Grandma and Grandpa finally married on March 15, 1951.

She is survived by her husband, Seaver, her seven children: Rolando, Benjamin, Robert, Johny, Delia, Joel, Vilma, and numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren, as well as other close relatives and friends.

In her spare time at home, she was either in the garden, watching tv, in the kitchen preparing hot meals, or in the dining area playing solitaire. Grandma Avelina loved gardening and took pride in growing her very own vegetables and flowers. From that pride she grew her garden, and her family, and watched her flowers bloom.

Avelina’s role as a family member was very important to her. She enjoyed being with her family during any and every occasion. Grandma adored her grandchildren and when we’d visit her, we’d see the spark of joy in her smile and in her eyes.

In grandma’s later life, she struggled with an overwhelming illness. Through all the hardship, she still managed to show us that she cared and loved her family. She taught us to be strong, to focus on the things that are important like going to school, helping your parents, and saving your money, but only so you can give her some.

Grandma Avelina was 88 when she passed away on Tuesday, January 29, 2019. It's difficult to say goodbye and I wish we all had more time to spend with her. Until the end, Grandma showed us that her family was the light of her life.

Sometimes we forget to be thankful to God, yet we are still blessed. Even though she had Alzheimer’s Disease, Avelina kept her faith and remembered to pray as much as she could. She had the kindest heart of we’ll probably ever grow to know. Let us now celebrate her life and look upon the legacy of her perseverance and remember Avelina Tutop’s love will remain alive forever in our hearts.
