Gary and I will truly miss you. Until the very end, we know you still think about us and you cared so much to the point we missed your last day on Earth. You shelter us from too much emotional event that probably we cannot take due to the situation we are in now.

We both have the same birth day. I thank you for all the bday greetings every year. You are so thoughtful.

This year we talked on the phone and I wont forget the 2 calls for we had a very lengthy conversation. We can talk for hours and we never run out of stories. I appreciate all the encouragements on living a full life, the trust you are willing to take when discussing about business partnership, and all the tips we can do on our small farm.

Thank you for your great smile everytime we see you. We love you tita Agnes and you will be forever in our hearts.

Thank you to Tiamzon family especially to tito Ernie. You are family to us. It always feel good to be with you all. We are just a call or message away if you need anything.

Dearest Agnes,
You filled your life with LOVE and CARE for your family, which was deeply obvious in everything you did...and what a truly FINE and WONDERFUL family you have created and nurtured. Your legacy of honesty and no-nonsense hypocrisy-FREE approach to life should be a great example for everyone. You did what you wanted to do, said what you wanted to say, and gave everything your own flavour. Your deeds may have fallen short of perfection for other people, but they were definitely done with the purest of intention and the cleanest of heart. You may have been gravely misunderstood in your candor and quickness to action, but you certainly cannot be faulted for your bountiful zest for cherishing and caring for your family and friends. Your faith in the Almighty God is admirable and should be emulated, especially in this world where materialism has taken over. In your own simple way, you have left all of us a lesson..."live your life the way you want, but don't forget that what is most important is the way your life ends!"
The PEACE and SOLACE with which you were sent to the LORD are clear testimony of how He had answered your prayers, and the gift of LIFE you were able to extend, is an immeasurable treasure that will be an integral part of your legacy.
Ernie, Eumir, Bibay, Aika, Eight, Tin...you may feel sorrow and pain from losing Agnes, but relish the thought that her LOVE and CARE for you, her family was her lifelong devotion, and that she has gone to the place where she had longed to be, with eternal peace and happiness....to be with God Almighty.
Life goes on, but memories of Agnes will live with us forever. Remember that we are always here whenever you need us....
Lilia and Irene

My best memories with Tita Agnes two weeks prior to her hospitalization she faced time me. We had a great chat and talked random stuffs she was always so happy and comforting that just lighten my day! Her positive vibes, generosity and her family devotion given me so much admiration of her life in general! She was genuinely care everyone and I never met anyone who were passionately care and very loving wife, mother, lola, tita and a friend! I have a soft spots of tita Agnes and envy her because she taught me how to be a good person like she was to everyone. Darryl, Sweleen, Sonia and Isabelle devastated that you’re gone! You will be missed forever and love you!

Dear Tiamzon Family,

On behalf of Ramon and our family, please accept our sincerest sympathy. The pain of losing a loved one is undescribable. Prayers can help eased the pain and loneliness. We were fortunate to have met the family, Kumareng Agnes and Kumpareng Ernie and siblings through Ella and Vernon as we were one of the chosen Ninong and Ninang on their wedding last July 5, 2019. I remembered Kumareng Agnes sitting down after the reception with her legs up on the chair, I told her how pretty she was that night and she responded lalo ka na with a sweet smile, as I can tell how tired and how her feet hurts. Through her children I could say that she is a perfect mother and daughter of God. Farewell kumareng Agnes rest in peace,and rest in Gods love, I'll someday see you there. In Christ- Kumareng Chelle Marfori

Ma,

I distinctly remember the first time I rode on the public bus by myself. You were there to show me how. I was in 5th grade and we were going home from my school and we had just moved in the blue house. You told me to go on the earlier bus, and that you would ride on the following scheduled time. You reassured me that I would be okay, just so long as I follow the instructions you’ve given me. I was so anxious and unsure, because you were no longer by my side when I was on the bus. But I got home safely and as you promised, you were there right behind me.

This memory will always be how I’ll remember you. Through thick and thin, joy and sadness, you were there. Ready with a comforting embrace. Every learning experience I’ve had, you were there to guide me and support me. Then suddenly, you’re gone, and the anxiety of not having you by my side on that bus is now amplified by a million times, because you’re no longer physically there for the rest of my life. But then I remember the reassurance you gave me before that bus left. You’ll be right behind me, making sure that I’ll be safe. All I need to do is follow your instructions and live by the lessons you and Papa have instilled on us, and I’ll be okay. I love you Ma and I miss you more than words could ever describe. You live on in our memories

I get a lump in my throat and tears in my eyes when I think of your passing. You took me into your home with open and loving arms at a time when there was so much uncertainty in my life. I remember walking with you to the market to buy fresh ingredients for dinner. It was a long walk, passing by beautiful cherry blossom trees and I remember feeling tired then embarrassed because you had way more energy than I did!

As expected, the meal that night was delicious and I just felt my worries slide away. You had such a wonderful laugh and I will never forget that. Rest in peace, tita Agnes.

“Passion fruit juice and ginisang alugbati”
My 1st time to eat this at your small eatery at koronadal (near ipho and Capitol ). I saw little Tintin.
Who would’ve thought when I support the lady spikers I’m gonna meet your youngest.
And saw you again Tita Agnes. Exchanging stories and love for Tintin.
I’m happy to meet some of your family thru online and others in personal.
May your soul rest in peace Tita Agnes.
You will be missed🌹

My phone rings at 2AM & wakes me from a sound sleep with an FB messenger video call. The screen says Agnes is calling you. I blearily answer it. Mama A's face fills the screen & the first thing she says with that grin of hers is, "Ice, tulog ka na?" I groggily say, "Opo." She laughs & then says, "Si Mama mo?"

My relationship with Mama A is filled with such moments. She'd call at random times of the day & night. She'd drop in at the office with that fast walk of hers, make a beeline for our desks & I'd hear her tell my mum, "Cecille, alam mo ba..." She'd hand me her ever present baon of nilagang saba when I say I'm hungry & say, "Eto, kain ka." She'd be at our meetings, fall asleep & when woken, she'd say, "Nakikinig ako." She'd always wear a bathing suit at the beach & wouldn't hesitate to strike a sassy pose when teased. She'd laugh girlishly when teased about her love life with Papa Ernie. She'd wake up at the crack of dawn & I'd hear her talk about what needs to be done for the day at the tindahan. She'd hear me say I'll be driving to Marbel & she'd say, "Makikisabay ako, Eunice. Pupuntahan ko si Eumir." She showed up with Papa Ern in tow when I had to bake 75 pcs of Banana Chocolate Cupcakes saying, "Pano kami makakatulong?"

She'd have a ready smile for strangers & a warm hug for old friends. And she was super generous with her time, her laugh & her compassion. Mama A was the embodiment of a life lived vibrantly. Everything she did, she did with gusto. I remember when I was prevaricating about doing something, she'd look at me like I'm thinking things to death and say emphatically, "Ano pa hinihintay mo? Tara na!" She loved life. She loved people. And she loved her family. No reservations. No hedging. She welcomed everything and everyone. She never wasted any time. Every single second counted. Her presence burned brightly in my life.

I love you so much, Mama A. Life will never be the same with your passing. I will never forget you.
