I first met Tita Belle when I joined the Sigma Rho Fraternity where Patrick and I were batch-mates, having joined in the same year of 1991. Coming from the province, I had to stay in the humble dormitories of the University of the Philippines; and naturally, the Mariano household became my second (and real) home in Manila, together with several members of our batch. Tita Belle was our mother. She fed us, cared for us, disciplined us. There was even that time there were just too many staying at their place that we ended up in their bedroom, with Tito Sonny and Tita Belle sleeping the master’s bed while we slept on the floor. That was how Tita Belle treated us; as her own.

Being a part of one of the more "colorful" fraternities on campus at that time, we walked on the wild side and had our share of “rumbles”. I remember this one skirmish that was so intense that not even Patrick could risk venturing out to pick me and my girlfriend up from the airport as we arrived in Manila. And guess who drove 50 kms from Quezon City and back just to ensure my safety (and that of my present wife)? Tita Belle. Of course, I need not mention that we stayed in their home for the next couple of days till the dust settled.

I am sure that there are numerous and various other stories from the brods. But the common fact is that Tita Belle will always be remembered with fondness. And though she may have gone, her memory will always live on through her posterity, through us, and through everyone else whose lives were touched by her love, care, and kindness.

Early 70's in college when I last saw Belle and Sonny at their place in Quezon City. An amazing spread snacks, meals and beverages in abundance making sure our bellies were full....
45 years later, June 2017 was in Vegas for my Nursing Class '77 College reunion. Connected with Gigi prior and all plans in placed to meet her after. Then of course my cell mishap and I looked like a deer in headlights! No phone no GG ????No rice on hand but the blow dryer did the trick and back to it's functional mode and it appears that GG had left several messages ...fast forward called her back and planned the meet and pick up place. Excitement is an understatement. The wait felt forever then someone taps me and gives me a hug and it was Bella! We hugged and kissed .. that was a genuine endearing moment. During the course of our dinners she'd ask about the family back home and my own and a wonderful exchange indulged in reminiscence down memory lane.
Bella spoked with honesty from her heart. It was as if she spent her lifetime observing human nature. Without a doubt this made her who she was, loving, caring, and the very kind who like to see everyone succeed as she was the embodiment of success herself. The magnitude of the sadness we all feel becomes worse when you take into account the life Bella had and stamped out so suddenly.... so unexpectedly.
Dear Bella I could not find anything more remarkable to describe you more than others have and thank our good Lord to have gifted you to us. Patrick and Kristian through your sorrow remember your parents left you a great legacy that will pass on to Mayumi, Emmanuel, Eliseo and other children in the future.
Lorna, Nonong, Marit and Gigi through the mist of your tears and grief, Bella 's beautiful spirit is and will always be with you
Rest easy now our sweet beautiful Bella and bask in Heaven's eternal joy with Sonny and Christian. All our love, you will be missed.. this isn't goodbye... until then.

In German they say, Auf wiedersehen, or till we meet again. Yes, Tita Belle, till we meet again. You know that I will never forget you, your wisdom, elegance, kindness and sense of humor. Seeing you in Manila was always a highlight of my trip. I know we were supposed to meet in Switzerland this year, but alas, this was not what our Lord has planned.
Patrick, Kristian> always remember that I will be there if you need to talk.

To your precious memory my dear dear Belle.....not easy to spin those words actually....so many.... most must have been said and written.
Extremely sad and heart breaking that you have to go so so soon. You have accomplished a lot but more you would have been. You desired to do more...to give more love, joy and fun.
Decades of physical distance... yet as if it's all so recent. How I wished for one more time....another chance!!!
Did I even say I love you last time? If I didn't ........I love you Belle....ma belle💜❤️❤️❤️

From Manang Ely

Belle was a family's gift who loved so much. She had a heart of gold - with caring, giving, gentle ways. I remember her sweet demure smiles, but behind those smiles, she was frank and straightforward. She would intelligently argue, to make her point in any debatable situation. We always have many pleasant memories when we go to Las Vegas, long hours of "kwentohan, tawanan, playing mahjong with Sonny" and sya naman busy preparing the mirienda and kainan. Site seeing, dinner outings, casino hopping, few of the many to mention. Belle was just a beautiful person, we will surely miss. Her spirit of a loving heart, will live in us forever. Goodbye, Belle. Will you rest in eternal peace.

To Patrick and family, Kristian: We loved your mom so very much and your dad too; another gentle soul. We share in your grief and deep sorrow. We send you our love and prayers.

From Manong Roming

Today, I have mixed feelings: one of sadness and another of gladness. Sadness because we mourn the loss of someone so loved, so close to all our hearts. Gladness, knowing she is no longer suffering and is happily reunited with Sonny. Belle was so welcoming; very hospitable and caring. She would burn the telephone line, just to persistently invite us and even suggest our move to Vegas. I called her my "favorite cousin" and I just remember her beaming smile.

Goodbye my favorite. Your ever smiling, beautiful face, and sweet, calm voice will be missed. Rest in peace. We love you.

To Patrick and Kristian, stay strong. And just be the good children she loved. We mourn in sorrow at the same time, celebrate her good life.

Love and prayers,

Tito Roming
