A Silent Tear
Just close your eyes and you will see All the memories that you have of me Just sit and relax and you will find I'm really still there inside your mind.
Don't cry for me now I'm gone For I am in the land of song There is no pain, there is no fear So dry away that silent tear.
Don't think of me in the dark and cold For here I am, no longer old I'm in that place that's filled with love Known to you all, as "up above".

When I was three years old I moved to North Carolina and I would only visit Nanay once every other year. Yet, Despite the 3000 miles in between her and I, it felt like she was always with me. She would always call me to wish me a merry christmas, a happy birthday, or just to see how I was doing. Nanay left such a big impact on me, and I will not forget her. Most of all, I will never know another person as caring, generous, and selfless as Nanay. Rest in peace. I love you.

I’m justin, her very first great-grandson , all my life she was close right beside me. When I was born my mom had no choice but to work endlessly to get money for us , and of course nanay was there to take care of me while she was working. I lived with her majority of my life always sleeping next to her . Every night we would pray together and sometimes sing songs in Tagalog. My favourite memory is whenever I got out of practice she would have food ready at home just for me. She was the most caring person I ever met and I would do anything to to see her beautiful smile again.

My name is Jingguy, Nanay Ely’s granddaughter. I can’t thank her enough for being my grandmother. What she did to me and to my entire family changed my life, our lives. She gave everything to us; she’s the selfless person that I ever known. She showed me how a family should be. I wish I can bring back time to spend one last hour with her to apologize for all the things that I have done wrong from the past that I know regardless what I do, she always there to help/ understand and support me. Thank you for everything, Mahal na mahal kita Nanay, I will always treasure the memories I have for you. Thank you for being my hero, our hero. You truly a special, special woman. You may have passed, but your memories would always live on within me and to my entire family.

My grandma dedicated her life to others. She was the most selfless, generous, caring person I've ever known. She did not have an easy life but she leaned on God and her family to get through any and every hardship that came her way. She raised me and my little brother and went to great length to do so because it was important to her. Her family always came first, even before herself. She went without so others could get their needs met and she did this with grace.
I viewed her as the center of the family. She was the glue that connected us.
My grandma gave me the greatest gift, which is the gift of Love - real Love. To me, she is the ultimate example of what Love looks like. I will miss her dearly, but I also know that she is with me every day in the way I love other people. Every time I feed someone, every time I care about the well being of another, every time I act generously, my grandma is with me, still teaching me, still guiding me. My greatest hope is to be able to carry her with me and give this precious gift to others.
She lived a life of love, a life that will continue to live on, a life that not even death can touch.
Thank you for teaching me, grandma. I love you.

We are the in-laws of Bess Filipa Foster. She is married to our son Scott. We first met Ely when her grandchild, Lauren, was born. We were so impressed with her giving nature and kindness. She was always smiling , and loved all her grands so much. She was such a help to Bess and Scott while they worked , and became a delightful addition to their home. As the time has pass, we have had the pleasure of spending time with her during visits. Our family grew to love her as our own family. She will be greatly missed by all.
None of us in Concord will ever forget those fantastic spring rolls she made and brought with her!! What a talent cook she was! Rest peacefully, sweet Ely, we all love you.

Ate Ely was a family to us. Like Mely I’ve known her for over 30 yrs. it broke my heart to hear her pass while I was in the Phils vacationing thru Mely. We were a team during our Four Seasons/Fairmont Hotel days. We Loved her dearly and will be surely missed. Rest In Peace Ate Ely, you are in a better place now. Our memories of you will be in our hearts forever. ❤️🙏🙏🙏

I’m Scott, Nay ‘s my mother in law. I became very close to her when I lived in Seattle for 16 years. Nay lived at our house and helped raise our kids, Lauren and Cole when they were both very young. She was always the most giving person.
When I first started dating her youngest daughter I was the guy from the Navy and she made it pretty clear that she didn’t like me very much. I think that’s exactly what she said. It took a while to win her over and it was worth it. Through the years we only had love and respect for each other. I would do anything for her, and she would for me. We wanted her to go with us to North Carolina and live with us. We tried over the years to convince her, but her answer was always the same. To this day I still wished she’d agreed to come to North Carolina. She had been so far away and I had missed her presence in our lives.
Nay’s strong religious beliefs and morals inspired me. Her family values and dedication helped shape mine. Her generosity and kindness touched many people. I am blessed and very lucky to have known her and loved by her. She will always hold a special place in my heart and I loved her very much.

Nanay was like a second mother to me when I was in college with her daughter, Baby. We used to go to their house in Pandacan and she would cook for us and make sure we are well fed and taken cared of. Many many years later, when my daughter, Rachelle transferred to Seattle for her masteral studies, we did not know anyone in Seattle so at a moment’s notice, I messaged my friend Babes, and she contacted Nanay and Nanay and their family picked up my daughter from the airport, welcomed her in their home and even accommodated Rachelle’s vegan food needs. We will never forget her kindness and generosity ❤️ Nanay, we will miss you❤️ We pray for the repose of her soul in heaven and for peace and strength of heart and mind of the Himor/Foster family❤️

My memories with you will never be forgotten.
Over thirty two years is a long time to be cherish forever. Remembering those times Ate Ely when my husband picked us up from work, you waited so much time for me so we can go home together, those togetherness are so precious to remember honestly. You'll be missed but we know you're now with the Lord.
I have promised you last December 3rd that I'll come back to see you one more time but now you're gone😥😥😥🌹🌹🌹🌷🌷🌷🙏🙏🙏
Loving you always Ate Ate Ely
Till we meet again!!!
