EULOGY: Thank you Inay...

“The life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living.”

It is with heavy heart that we are gathered here to send off our beloved grandmother to eternal rest. But why not change the mentality and take it this way, we are all gathered here to celebrate and commemorate the life of our dearly departed grandmother.

As I drafted this eulogy for everyone, I recalled some of my fondest memory of Inay. Let me share you some.

Inay's 75th...
1   Hinding hindi ko makakalimutan sa tuwing pinaglalaruan niya ang kanyang mga pustiso. Noong mga bata kami, ginagawa niya iyon para takutin ang mas mga nakababata ko pang mga pinsan. Sabay halakhak kapag nakita na niyang natatakot na ang bata, sabay aamuhin at yayakapin. Sa pangyayaring iyon, ramdam na ramdam ko ang kanyang pagmamahal.

Hinding hindi ko makakalimutan sa tuwing binibigyan niya ako ng pera para ibili ko ng meryenda pagkalabas sa eskwela. Minsan lalapit siya sa akin upang iabot ang kung anong meron siya. Ako naman, bilang bata ay tuwang tuwa. Magmamadali akong tumakbo sa tindahan upang ibili ng biskwit at ng paborito kong softdrink. Pupuntahan ko siya sa terrace at hahatian ko kung ano man ang aking binili. Sa pangyayaring iyon, ramdam na ramdam ko ang kanyang pagmamahal. 

     Hindi hindi ko makakalimutan sa tuwing pupunta siya sa bahay kapag may dumarating akong mga bisita. Isa isa niyang iniistima ang mga iyon na tila ba kinikilatis kung mabuting tao ang kasama ng kanyang apo. Sabay tanong kung tagasaan sila, kung kilala si ano at si ano. Sa pangyayaring iyon, ramdam na ramdam ko ang kanyang pagmamahal.

Ilan lamang ito sa mga masasayang alala namin ng Inay. Alam kong ang bawat isa sa atin dito ay may kanya kanyang itinatagong masayang alaala kasama siya.

Let us all remember that we will all die. Huwag nating hintayin na malaman pang mamamatay na tayo dahil hindi natin alam kung kelan talaga ang oras ng bawat isa. What we can do now is to live the life that God has given us. Learn to live a life with no regrets, no fear, no hate, with love, passion and desire to be the source of happiness for others. Ask yourself now, are you ready to die tomorrow? If not, why? If you’re going to ask me, I’ll bravely answer, yes I am ready. For I live the life I wanted it to be and I know God is with me in every single endeavour I am in.

Let us all be grateful for what we have now. We may lose a person in the name of Inay but we gained more love from support of our family and all people who are present here. May we show love not only in times like this but in everyday we are living. Let us continue to be the instrument of God’s blessings and may continue to share the happiness.


To end this, let us offer a moment of silence to thank God for sharing us Inay and for giving us a loving and selfless mother through her.
