Our heartfelt condolences go out to the Torres/Sibayan family. Auntie Bating was always a heartwarming presence in Richgrove and years later in Bakersfield. She invested so much love in her family. I remember she planted a garden at Joel and Lu's house and Nestor knew without asking that it was the work of a doting mother who couldn't stand the thought of her babies living in a house without a garden. She was always thinking up ways to take care of you. You have been blessed with a wonderful mother.
