I found out this morning that my grandmother died. She was 90 years old and had accomplished everything that she had ever wanted to in her life. Although she lived in the Philippines and most of the family lives in the US, we would make it a point to come visit often. Last time we saw her was earlier this year in January to celebrate her 90th Birthday. Words cannot describe how much I will miss her...

I also was awakened this morning with the sad news but so very grateful we saw her in Jan. Her passing makes me think of all our good times together and how lucky we were to have spent as much time as we did even with the distance. Let's send our thoughts Lolo's way... Love to you and the family... Sari (1st cousin)

Beautiful. Your photo says a lot about the family --- all of it good. Tia Luding lived a long, fruitful life. We should all accomplish as much. Love, Tita C
