  1. Dearest May, Eric, Jed, Nathan, Kuya Ricky, Jing, Sam, Mark, Rachel, James and Jamie, We’re extending our deepest condolences to you on your/our beloved Ninang Alice’s passing, she was like a mother to us as well, and she treated me like her own son, never did she make me feel that I was a burden whenever I slept over in your house in Matapat St., in V. Luna, or in Philamlife and the times she would pick me up on Fri in our house in Paco. Nang, you and my dearest Ninong will forever be in my thoughts and in my heart. We will truly miss your presence. I’m just relieved that I was able to make you and Ninong happy whenever you went home (Manila) for your annual vacation and that we’d give you and Ninong a send off/birthday lunch before you and Ninong went back to the US. Love you Nang and please extend our love to Ninong, Nanang, my dad, Kuya Dandy, Bobet, and Lola Me.

  2. Or deepest condolences to the Reyes family on the passing of Mama Alice. May God bless and comfort your family during this time. You are all in our prayers.
