Sun.Star Baguio - - OPINION -

WE re­ceived word from hour daugh­ter Marisol last Tues­day morn­ing that a HOly Mass in honor of our daugh­ter, her sis­ter Mary­jayne was cel­e­brated at the St. El­iz­a­beth Ann Se­ton Church in Las Ve­gas, Ne­vada, USA last Satur­day, April 7. The Holy Eucharist, Marisol said, was co­or­di­nated and spon­sored by Lolit Man­da­pat and her fam­ily, to­gether with Mary­jayne's sons Miggy and Luigi and his charm­ing bet­ter half Anglica, all res­i­dents of Un­cle Sam's premiere re­sort city. The re­li­gious event, the first of a se­ries while Mary­jane's cre­mated re­mains is still in the States was at­tended by her for­mer class­mates at the Baguio Gen­eral Hospital School of Nurs­ing here in the city, a core of for­mer mem­bers of the Pangkat Si­layan and the Igorots on the Road Cul­tural Troupe, rel­a­tives and friends of the Padil­las and the Ber­mude­ses who are re­sid­ing in dif­fer­ent states in Amer­ica.

Mary­jane (Ling May) peace­fully joined her Cre­ator last March 21 af­ter a brave and fierce­ful bat­tle against the Big C. Marisol and her daugh­ter, Dr. Ka­t­rina were with her at the hospital be­fore Ling MAy said "good­bye"; at least for two weeks. Her re­mains were cre­mated last April 3.

Orf course, we are still in grief. We are deeply ap­pre­cia­tive and grat­i­fied to all the peo­ple who are ex­tend­ing their sym­pa­thies and con­do­lences dur­ing our hour of agony. Spe­cial thanks to the spon­sors to to all those who took time to at­tend the Holy Mass last April 7 (9 AM, April 8, Manila time.)

MArisol added, that a Holy Mass for Ling May will be held in San Fan­sisco, Cal­i­for­nia on May 5. The af­fair is be­ing co­or­di­nated by Joji Mon­temayor Ban­tasan, a for­mer BGHSN cograd­u­ate of Ling May in 1978. An­mother Holy Mass sched­uled to be held some­where on Cal­i­for­nia this month is be­ing ar­ranged. miggy, Luigi and An­gle­ica will en­plane to Cal­i­for­nia to at­tend the re­li­gious events in honor of their late and lov­ing Mama when the time comes. They will bring with them rhe wooden jew­elry box con­tain­ing the ashes of their mother. We are hop­ing and pray­ing for their safe jour­ney. In spirit and prayers, we will be with them in all the Holy Masses pro­gramed abroad.

Only re­cently, Marisol in­formed us the Ling May's last will and tes­ta­ment in­cludes, that her cre­mated re­mains will be brought home to our res­i­dence along moun­tain slopes of Benin, Pin­sao Proper Barangay and that her ashes will be spread
