My deepest condolences.  May these few words from the Holy Scriptures bring you comfort in your time of grief...

John 11:32-45

32 And so Mary, when she arrived where Jesus was and caught sight of him, fell at his feet, saying to him: “Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.” 33 Jesus, therefore, when he saw her weeping and the Jews that came with her weeping, groaned in the spirit and became troubled; 34 and he said: “Where have YOU laid him?” They said to him: “Lord, come and see.” 35 Jesus gave way to tears. 36 Therefore the Jews began to say: “See, what affection he used to have for him!” 37 But some of them said: “Was not this [man] that opened the eyes of the blind man able to prevent this one from dying?”

Now Jesus raised his eyes heavenward and said: “Father, I thank you that you have heard me. 42 True, I knew that you always hear me; but on account of the crowd standing around I spoke, in order that they might believe that you sent me forth.” 43 And when he had said these things, he cried out with a loud voice: “Laz´a·rus, come on out!” 44The [man] that had been dead came out with his feet and hands bound with wrappings, and his countenance was bound about with a cloth. Jesus said to them: “Loose him and let him go.”

45 Therefore many of the Jews that had come to Mary and that beheld what he did put faith in him;

May you rest in perfect peace. We all love you.

The sorrow of the faithful is not that of permanent loss, but the tender sense of sadness that comes in saying good-bye for now to someone we love.
 May today's sorrow give way to the peace and comfort of God's love.
 Mama Cecelia, may you rest peacefully in the arms of the Almighty God.
Peter Francisco Son February 12, 2014
The heart that loves know the pains,the emotional pangs and the anguish that emanates from the death of a beloved mother.Your passing has robed me of a mother.Today i have become motherless.Today death has inflicted unprecedented blow and sorrow on me,-due to the circumstances that culminated in your passing.
Those tragic events are fresh and are still embeded on my thought.Today my eyes are filled with tears and i remain inconsolable.Mama, all the preparations,the plans and the anticipated joyous reunion with you,never materialised.My world is turned upside down.In all i give thanks to the almighty for having you as my mother.
Rest in perfect peace.
