Farewell, Mamay MenciaThursday, August 28, 2008
I just finished a phone conversation with Mama. Likewise, I was able to talk to her two sisters - my aunts whom I haven’t seen for years. I was teary-eyed when I put down my phone. Today’s my other Aunt’s (older than my mom) funeral. She passed away last August 20 due to liver ailment. The last time I visited Mama, she said that Mamay Mencia got sick. When I was still in the province, we used to visit them at least once a year. They live near the beach.
I feel sorry because my sister and I weren’t able to go home to attend the wake. Farewell, Mamay Mencia, we will miss you!
