It's hard to believe that it's been two years since Mama Guading passed away. I remember exactly where I was when I found out. I was with my friends Doms and Zaza outside a boardroom in our office waiting to called so we could provide top management with status updates on our Corporate Social Responsibility program. I then got a text from my mom. "Patay na si mama" she said. I could barely focus. No, actually, it seemed surreal. I think it took some time for the reality to sink in. The days, nay, weeks, after that were some of the saddest of my life.
Here's the post I wrote almost 2 years ago on the 9th day of Mama Guading's passing. She would have turned 75 birthday this coming Sunday if she were still with us. We miss you, Mama.
