Well my mom Zosima Rodriguez Bayoy, born on December 26, 1928 in San Fernando Cebu. Passed away last October 05, 2008 at 12:30pm. In Patag, Sarangani Province. At her bedside was her 6 children and grandkids and son-in-laws. One of her son(youngest son) was in Manila, just arrived from Singapore to visit her. He was just starts working to this new company. Luckily they allowed him one week off to visit mama.
It was really hard watching Mama suffer. I think at the end it was really a relief for us seeing her rested already. She’s already been suffering from the stroke a few years now. I think just 2-3 years after I get back from the States to lived here for good we did enjoyed having here. Not long after that she had stroke and her health went downhill then after that. I was just happy that my kids and Mama did spent some time together here at our house. She usually visit us here before and likes to work at our yard. Lots of time we will take her to Bukidnon to buy some flowers for her to plant at our yard. She really had a green thumb. Anything she planted it will grow. I wished I had some of her ability on the plants.
Mama, we really love you a lot. We are just happy that you’re now resting with Papa in Heaven. From the bottom of my heart thank you so much for raising us kids. You and Papa did good, because we are all turn out good and simple people. I really appreciate you guys hardship and sacrifices just for us to go to school. I know that sometimes we your kids had some trouble with each of other, but we did try our very best to be united in honor of you. And I am proud to say that we did it. Even when you are starting to get sick we are already united for you. Not as strong as now though. I hope that you know that all of us really love you with all our heart. It’s just hard to believed that you are gone already.
