Today Tita Mamel sent an email informing that its been thirty days since Mommy passed on. She died last June 14, 2008. Tita says "mingaw kaayo". We really miss our lola. She always made her presence felt in our lives by sending us food from Tagbilaran everytime somebody comes to Manila. But now that she is gone, we can only recall and re-live the excitment of receiving those food stuff. My wife Ruby found a photo of her and Mommy taken more than ten years ago, during lolo and lola's golden anniversary on January 1, 1998. We had been married just a few days before before that.
