What can I say about Mama? She was a teacher, and she embraced her profession even in her personal relationship with all her children. She did not only teach us about school, but most importantly, she taught us about life.

A few months ago, Mama was diagnosed with breast cancer and it was already in advanced stage. We, as children would do, wanted her to undergo chemotherapy in the hope of having Mama with us longer. But I remember that Mama took everything calmly. She asked her doctor if he could give her a hundred percent guarantee that chemotherapy would work. The doctor was unable to give her that guarantee. Instead, he advised that it was a chance that she may need to take. After much deep thought, Mama has made a decision. She refused chemotherapy.

In a few short months, we witnessed how her health had deteriorated. But her spirit was always there. She would always say that she would be with us only till December. She was still teaching in the school up to the last day before Christmas break. The day of their Christmas party, we needed to rush Mama to the hospital. She stayed there for a week, and then she asked to be sent home to spend Christmas with her family. The doctor informed us that there was nothing they can do because she repeatedly refused to undergo further treatment. What we could do was to make her as comfortable as possible during the last few days of her life.

That Christmas was a bittersweet memory for all of us who loved Mama so much. We were happy because we are spending it together with her, and at the same time sad, because we knew that this would be our last Christmas with her.

On her last night with us, we spent the whole night praying with her and for her. We assured her that we would be there for each other, no matter what. On her last breath, a tear trimmed down her face. She found peace at last with her Creator, and that thought is what made us get through the experience of losing our mentor, our model, our mom.

A few days after her death, we found a poem inside her purse. Let me share that with you.

ďTo Those I Love And To Those Who Love MeĒ

When I am gone,
Release me, let me go
I have so many things to see and do.
You mustnít tie yourself to me with tears;
Be happy we had so many years.
I give you my love,
You can only guess how much you gave to me in happiness.
I thank you for the love
You have shown me;
But now itís time I travel alone.
So grieve a while for me,
If grieve you must.
Then let your grief be comforted by trust.
Itís only for a while that we must part,
So bless the memories within your heart.
I wonít be far away for life goes on.
So if you need me,
Call me and I will be near.
And if you listen with your heart,
Youíll hear
All my love around you,
Soft and clear.
And when you must come this way along,
Iíll greet you with a Smile,
And ďWelcome HomeĒ.

This is the poem that has inspired us to go on with our lives. I know that as I read this, we can feel Mama listening with us, comforting us, living in us. Mama, this is the one true memory you left that we will cherish, until we meet again.
