Tributes
Our Mother's love will be
Close to us for ever.
We will hold fast to our memories,
and to all the cherished moments of the past,
to the blessings and the laughter,
the joy and the celebrations,
the sorrow and the tears.
They all add up to a treasure
of fond yesterdays.
that we shared and spent together.
Special moments and memories will be
in our hearts today and forevermore.
We Love You
Sons & Daughters


FOR OUR GRANDMOTHER
You were one of those wonderful people
Whose gentle and heartwarming ways
Did so much to bring happiness to others,
As you have brighten our lives and days.
You've been someone important and special
To the many hearts that you've touched
And you will always be loved and remembered
by your loved ones.

10U OU BELOVED GRANDMOTHER AND MOTHER-IN-LAW
When we were told that you had passed we could not believe it. Our
hearts were filled with pain and sorrow. I know the pain and sorrow will be
comforted and maybe eventually be placed by the precious memories which
we hold in our hearts for you.
I will remember and appreciate the mother that you were to us. It hurts
to see you lying still and know we would no longer converse together. You
were always there for us in love and comforting words. We now acknowledge
that although you have left this life you will always be remembered by your
smile and jokes, and yes we will see you again someday as our Father in
heaven has promised and we are comforted that the fact that all will be well.
Sleep on our believed Mother and Grandmother. May you rest in peace.
The Lord is my Light and my Salvation
Whom then shall I fear?
The Lord is the strength of my life
Whom then shall I be afraid?
Daughter-in-Law Yvonne Monsanto
SGrandchildren Michelle, Pedrito, Alvin
and Great-grandchildren



TAN LUCIA
It's not goodbye, it's just farewell.
