Momma Noval - I'll always remember you and I sitting out in the front yard of your home in Cebu when @gienoval and I visited you and the family last year.
My own mental health almost kept me from making that trip, but Gigie got me on the plane. She was determined, my meeting her mom was going to happen.
We knew then it may be our only chance to meet, and it was. 😓
I've never seen a body, the complete opposite of a person's spirit. You were skin and bone, frail and in pain. The mylefibrosis might have been getting the upper hand on your flesh but fuck that, you are not your flesh.
The spirit that could not be diminished, is what I think of.
Your sense of humor and strength were obvious to me. I felt comfortable talking, telling you that I loved your daughter, or sitting in silence with you. I'm glad we had that moment and others during that visit. I'm thankful I had the time to tell you what a beautiful woman and partner your daughter had become.
Today, as you get laid to rest, I'm feeling a sense of peace that you are no longer in pain and your life is being celebrated by those that love you.
You are in my thoughts today and you will be remembered with ❤ in our home, always.
