My grandmother passed away this weekend. She was 76 and the dearest soul… She was such a Mom. Always taking care of people, always wanting to feed you more. She was cute and the smallest member of our family (minus the really really young kids). She was a lot like my Mum: smart, perceptive, intuitive, talented in many respects, gentle but firm and most of all, all about love. Maria Fe Santos Wang did not have a bad bone in her body and I’ve missed growing up in her wisdom.
I was at work when my Mum called me to tell me the news and I couldn’t hold my protest in. In a way I’m glad I wasn’t at home, because then I knew that I wouldn’t have been able to stop crying because my Mum would have been crying. Jason was really good at comforting me that night and I was grateful that he was there. Everyone’s been really awesome in this time and I just want to say thank you. I wish that you all could’ve met her… for those of you that have met my Mum, my Grandmum was the same… except less annoying *smirk*.
I’d like to ask all of you to take a moment to honor my Grandmum’s memory, even if you didn’t know her, living in the Philippines is hard and she did it with grace, courage and integrity. Thank you for your time… 🙂
