Memories Timeline


  1. Sending our condolences and love from the Philippines. We thank God that we were able to spend time with you. We love you Aunty Baby!

  2. We are very very sad with you, Granny A and J. Granny B is precious to us and to our Lord. Praying that He will grant you comfort and strength, using every memory of Granny B to remind you that you have loved her, and she has loved you so much. Tight tight hugs from Manila!

  3. Auntie Baby is my godmother, and I have thanked her many times for the wonderful moments she shared with me as I grew up. She took me to the Bustillos church on board a public bus (my very first time), and treated me to my first taste of the famous Ma Mon Luk mami and siopao. I remember her using a lot of hot sauce! How grateful I am for her generosity in paying for piano lessons so that I could resume learning in high school. She lent me her piano books! Auntie Baby was also present in my college graduation. She took time off from work to celebrate with me and my family. Auntie B has been known to be very quiet and shy. And every time she let out a laugh, it would make everyone so happy. She also looks so much like my Papa, and when he passed, spending time with her, when she visited Manila years back was like spending precious time with Papa. Auntie Baby left her small TV with me when she left for the US, and would hand me money gifts. My kids and I appreciate her for every balikbayan box she packed with all sorts of gifts also from Auntie A and J. Like Papa, she would shop clothes that would perfectly fit me! Thank You, Lord for using Auntie Baby to teach me that love doesn't have to be loud, noisy and showy. Thank You for her life and all the fond memories I have of her quiet love for me and my family.

  4. My favorite part about Auntie Baby was her smile! She had the warmest smile and greeting.

  5. Dear JJ and family,

    I'm very sorry for your loss! She may RIP.
    You're in my prayers, if anything I can do please let me know! I'm sorry again.
