    Thank you for your message Yvette Okeke. The words from up above that you have delivered to us is very much appreciated. It really somehow helped ease our sorrow. We did not expect these words of concern from a person who is a stranger to us. I guess you were used by the Lord to lessen this excruciating pain in our hearts. It truly helped and made a difference. We are in the saddest moment that she is always in our thoughts. We are thankful that you came across at the right time. Yes it is true, she a very interesting person with a colourful life. A strong-willed person, a fighter with a very kind heart.

    To the family, I am deeply sorry for your loss. I just came across this obituary, I did not know her personally but it sounds like she was a very interesting person. What a painful experience to lose someone so dear to us with whom we have shared joy and pain. Even though she lived longer than many, she was still young and it makes it even harder to come to terms with. I pray that your family find comfort in this difficult time. No doubt, you will miss her and long to see her again. The bible shows us that God himself also misses those who have died and longs to bring them back to life. Please read Job 14:13-15, you can access an online bible in English or Tagalog here: https://www.jw.org/en/publications/bible/nwt/ Please find comfort in knowing that you can see Maria again under God's arrangement.

Please be strong and may you find peace despite your sorrow.
