How to describe a woman when only shared from different perspectives other than my own. In my own words, I can say that she was truly exceptional. Always strived for the best even while being stubborn. But we all have that in us. A fire inside keeping us lit. And now that fire is inside of us keeping ourselves lit. However, this woman gave us a bonfire instead of a torch. Now we will be able to find peace within solitude.

Ate Lily was the oldest among 9 siblings. As the big sister, she had so many good qualities that endeared her to us. She was a very generous and giving person. She cared for all her younger siblings like a second mother. She was easy to talk to because she was always calm, open, and listened without judgement. She also gave good advice. We all love and miss her greatly. May she rest in peace.
