Tita Helen always welcomed me to their home since Ednalen & I became friends in college. I remember being at her 50th birthday celebration, seeing her enjoy life. I saw how her & Tito Edgar had a very sweet relationship and were always generous. Her legacy now lives through her family. I’m so grateful that she helped bring Ednalen into this world so that I could call her one of my best friends. Praying for peace & comfort for the whole family. Rest In Peace, Tita. See you in heaven. We love you!

I was in the middle of work when I learned about her passing. I wanted to cry my heart out but as a nurse on duty, I just can't. Prolonging that agony for a few more hours seemed like forever as my mind refused to accept that the woman who treated me like her own daughter took on a new journey, this time, with God.
Tita Helen molded me to the woman that I am today alongside my parents. She would always indulge me with things that a mother would give her daughter, much more, the values and lessons that I needed to survive life. She taught me that problems and failures would always be there and I have to keep on standing no matter how many times I'd stumble and fall. My life and my family is far from being perfect, but she made it more bearable despite its imperfections. She made me stand for my decisions and embrace my weaknesses for that I could never ask for a better mom when mine was already gone. She was there every step of the way even at times when I felt that my troubles are already too heavy to carry.
With her passing, I did not only lost an aunt, I lost a mother, a bestfriend, and a confidante - a big part of my being. I will make sure that my kids and my family will never forget the smiles that she brought our household. She was our star that shined brightly within our midst, and she will always be even if she will be millions of miles away. Her journey on Earth might have ended, but her impact never will.
I love you tita..you will be missed forever.

It's surreal to think that you're gone. You were one of the first people to make me feel welcome in this family and I can't tell you how much that meant to me. You treated our kids like your own grandkids and we always felt so much love from you. Your smile literally lit up any room you were in. We will never understand why you were taken away so soon but I can promise you that you will never be forgotten. We love you forever. Rest in paradise ♥️

There many favorite memories with my mom. She became one of my best friends and was always my mom. She cared for me more than anyone ever did. She was funny and had up to date jokes. Jokes I never heard of and always up to date with the latest trends. She was my date when ever I didn’t have a date. We would go out to eat or go to the buffet at barona. One thing I would miss the most is go long shopping with her; at the mall, Costco or any other store. It just gave us a chance to talk and walk around with eachother. I appreciate everything you did for me mom and never giving up on me. My ma was supportive of all my dreams. I’m glad she came to visit at Chicago after bootcamp and recently to Washington for my re-enlistment. My mom also visited me in Virginia when I was in navy c school by her self. From there we went to Pennsylvania, the White House and fishing at 3 in the morning. So adventurous and hardworking. So confident and so giving. Mama had a strong beautiful soul. She had a strong loving relationship with God. You’re so beautiful ma, always love you. <3 your son

Mom always made sure you had food to eat and that you were welcomed with love and care. Through her, I learned to always look after your family and love them with all your heart. She gave all to her husband and kids. She loved her app and I will miss her dearly.

Mom was a strong, hard working, loving woman. She had multiple jobs, cooked dinner for her family, and still had time to play with us and make sure we were loved and cared for. Mom was the most faith driven people I’ve met, her relationship with God was contagious and inspiring. She was my super hero and role model and now she’s my angel. Love you ma.
