My most sincere condolences to Isha and her family for their loss.
I met her Lola a few times back when they were still here in Manila. The first meeting was very memorable, with me feeling intimidated by her presence.
Still, she extended to me her hand and welcomed me. She smiled at me and I realized I wasn't supposed to feel like a stranger.
And from that day on, I didn't feel like one.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, please guide her on her journey towards Heaven.
Remind her of her loving family, and of her grandchildren who will always remember her fondly.
Welcome her into God's kingdom that she too may now watch over her loved ones
from the skies above.
I am glad to have met you, Lola.
