    Eternal rest grant unto you and let perpetual light shine upon you. May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen

  2. We miss you so much Mama. If only you could stay forever…I know you are in a place with no pain and suffering. Please watch over us always, most especially your grandkids. You are our angel up above. Thank you for all the patience, the sacrifices raising us up on your own and most especially the unconditional love. I love you Mama. Go on Mama. Live your eternal life. Be more happier now where you are at. Don’t worry about us. I will keep your memories forever in my heart.
    Love, Antonette

  3. Auntie Ven, you have always been a mother to all of us, the neighborhood kids at the old Evangelista St. You were never short of advices and scolding to us whenever we go astray. You always had a way to remind us and instill into us what is right. You were never hesitant to confront us whenever we make our mistakes but never lacking in giving us your motherly counsel. Your steadfast values kept you a strong lady who raised two great kids, Val & Antonette. Antonette mentioned to me one time that she is so thankful that you were there instilling those values to their kids, your apos. As we mourn your passing, you have lived a full life and God has called you home. Please continue to guide us as you watch over us from Heaven. You will always be our dear Auntie Ven. I am sure when our time will come, you will be there to welcome us with your warm and gentle smile.

  4. I remember when we were having our home built in Leonila Hill way back in 1974-75, and there were a few houses then. The dela Paz. the Orca’s and of course the Ferrer’s. A beautiful rose and vegetable garden greets you every single morning when you wake up. Manang Ven or Aunte Ven, will always tell us (me and my sister Alo, there were only two of us then) “Call me Mama”, always. We were always welcomed in their home, of course also to listen to Tonet’s playing of the organ (we were made to endure this, joke only Tonet 🙂 ) and she always let us feel like part of their family. The last time we saw her was when she visited the Philippines.back in July 2012 and I can tell you that it was very nice to see them (Yes, including you Tonet and your family). We will be missing you “Mama” and we will always remember you. Our sincere Condolences Val and Tonet…

  5. Lola Ven, you will always be remembered as the fun-loving lola who would tell us a lot of colorful stories and have the warmest smile. We will miss you very much, lola! We love you!
