  1. I will always remember her smile and her ability to make others smile no matter what their disposition were.

    I will always appreciate the way she knows how to just listen and give great advice.

    When I think of people that I admire, Juneleen comes to mind for so many reasons. But the most important thing that I notice was people just instantly trust and adore Juneleen’s spirit of just being delightful and kind hearted, an intellectual and just being true to who she was.

    Juneleen meant so much to me because she was always there no matter what, even when I do something crazy, stupid or just being me. Juneleen will always say that “It will be fine just have faith and have patience. And learn from this”.

    One of the happiest times in my life was when Juneleen and I first met here in Los Angeles and reconnected. My cousin Juneleen was a childhood playmate. Almost every summer in the Philippines when we were kids, Juneleen and her siblings spend the summer at the house in Laguna. We always go swimming. It seems like nothing have changed since we were kids. Juneleen and I went to so many places here in California. Like the Los Angeles County Fair, Raging Waters, Knott’s Scary Farm, Port of Los Angeles’s Lobster Festival, Reagan’s Library many more places. Or just watch a movie when ever we have time to meet. And we always have a great time. Specially taking pictures. That was her favorite past time.

    Great cousins like Juneleen are the sweetest treasure.
    I am so blessed and glad that I reconnected and got to know Juneleen all over again. Even if it’s just in a blink of an eye. She was the best. May you rest in peace my dear cousin Juneleen. God has you now. May we meet again if it’s not to soon enough. Thank you for the joy, laughter, love and understanding you gave me. And thank you for not just being a cousin but also being a great friend.

    I love you and I will miss you my dearest cousin Juneleen.
