Rest peacefully now, Jacqueline

While I was writing my previous Discussion (Critical in ICU) last night, I did not know that Jacqueline, one of those I visit on Sundays, had already passed away earlier at about 4PM. I only learned of her passing when a friend called up early today to break the sad news. After having breakfast, I called Jacqueline's home which was busy, so I tried to call up the funeral parlor to inquire if her body was there. I got a negative reply and since I also got no answer when I called up another funeral parlor, I decided to go to Jacqueline's home where I found out that her body lay in state there. There were two female visitors who were talking with Jacqueline's mother when I entered the living room. We talked for a while and I invited them to pray with me for Jacqueline's eternal repose. Jacqueline would have turned 40 on June 21 but she was not able to reach and celebrate her birthday. It's only now that I found out about her ailment because I did not bother to ask before to respect her privacy. I also found out that she was the chief accountant of the university. She has an only brother who's working in the U.S. and who's coming home on Saturday to attend her burial. Jacqueline's mother had told me that Jacqueline's little girl cried wildly when she knew her mother was gone. It would have broken anyone's heart to see the little girl cry over the loss of her Mom. I bade goodbye to Jacqueline's mother and extended my condolences to Jacky's husband who just came out from the shower room. Jacky will be buried on Thursday next week, June 23, which is 2 days after her birthday. They will request a priest who is a cousin of Jacky's husband to celebrate mass on Jacky's birthday. Go and rest peacefully now, Jacqueline. In that place where you're going, there'd be no more pain or suffering. Your family will take care of your little angel and boy.

@sunrisefan She will. My nephew and niece lost their mother to brain cancer when they were young. They are normal happy adults now. I think they will miss their mother when they want to get married, and after they have their own children.

Thanks Rachz. She'll be buried after a 2PM mass this afternoon which I'll be attending. They had mass celebrated in Jacqueline's home on the 21st for her birthday that day. She would have been 40. I was not able to attend then because of two other commitments.

Thanks, Ms. Jean. I felt a bit bad and sad with her passing but happy on the other hand, knowing she won't suffer anymore. I've been visiting her, along with 7 others, on Sundays for a little over 2 years now. I pity most her little girl who's like a doll.
