To the bereaved of Ima Gina -
You all (and I too) have been blessed by Ima's presence here on earth, but more abundant blessings and guidance will be showered on all of us as she intercedes closely to the Lord. Let's keep those wonderful memories of her etched in our hearts- surely a woman who had a pure heart filled with Christian values.
Bask in the gift of eternal happiness Ima... Love Mhaeh

It's a short-lived memory with you, Grandma but rest-assured that you'll forever live in my memory and my heart. I went to the US alone with no family but your family has become mine. For sure, the values you taught have transcended well into the lives of your children and their loved ones. You and your family will always be in my prayers.

On behalf of my husband Art and I, we want to extend our deepest condolences to the Datu's family. Praying for the comfort and healing as you all grieving for the passing of grandma Gina Datu. May her soul rest in peace. Our best memories with grandma was when she accepted us as if we are her own family, she treated us so well that each time we saw each other she always showed her love to us. She has the heart of gold and she always cared for us. Grandma and I had a secret code "35" so each time she sees me no matter where either at rosary, party, or just a simple get together when I bless her hand and hugged her she knew its me so she always said to me "35" and we both laughed and said "let's go grandma" so she was happy when we took her to the casino. Grandma Gina please guide us and protect us always, you will always be missed, but will never forgotten until we meet again.

We love you,
Art, Tess & Jayden Wyss
