Yesterday, the 22nd of April 2009, Wednesday morning, our eldest and beloved sister Edna Asuncion Penos passed away totally unexpected.
We greatly mourn the loss of a loving and caring sister who dedicated her entire life to her family and to teaching our young Tagabulans. These children above were once her pupils in Bulan North Central School. She herself was the most loyal Tagabulan among us for she never left Bulan except during her college years in Legazpi city. She passed away a few days after her arrival in Cubao, Quezon City on her regular visit to her own family- husband Danny Penos and two grown up sons Bonbon and Jay who are all working in Manila.
I cannot describe in words the importance of Manay Edna in my own life and how this sudden not-being-with us-anymore pains us all. Again, I rebel inwardly, will not accept that death is such a harsh reality. We would have loved that she stayed with us for many years more…
Manay Edna will be brought back to our town Bulan for her final rest. Bulan, you are just too near for us…
We’ll remember you always, Manay Edna!
jun, with menchu, jerry, malou, dennis, judy- and families, and mama with our youngest brother roy.
The melody that reminds me always of Manay Edna:
