Dear Pey

"Only when you drink from the river of silence shall you indeed sing.
And when you have reached the mountain top, then you shall begin to climb.
And when the earth shall claim your limbs, then shall you truly dance"

Kahlil Gibran

For my beautiful SISTER P Marquez Mayor

You are loved and will always be loved. Your pain, no matter how excruciating and emotionally debilitating, is our pain too. We feel your affliction and tribulation. Your daughter was beautiful ... and will always be beautiful forever in the arms of GOD. I am not going to rationalise because this Earth, though her brief passage  to eternal life, is a fleeting expedition to an even greater journey.

We may not have been given the chance to see her grow up and be that beautiful image of your likeness, we know our memories will keep her alive forever. We promise that we may let go of what senses do not naturally perceive, our hearts and minds will embrace her as our dearest family. As for you (and Kelvin), you both will be given reasons for her passing but we believe that for as long as you both live, you know you were once proud parents to such an adorable girl... but in your being, you both will always be the longing parents and no one can take away the joy of eternal remembrance. 

We... your family, love you no matter what. We understand that our tears and affection may at times be inadequate but we will persevere to help you appease your bruised heart. Again, we unconditionally love you and your daughter.

In too much pain just as you are, 

Your family
