Journal entry by Jeff Zumarraga

Dear Mom,
You left this earth over a week ago. I am so happy you are no longer suffering. When you were breathing your last breaths, I hope you weren’t struggling too much. Did you hear me tell you to go be with God? Did you feel Jenny hold your hand? One day you can tell me the answer when we reunite in Heaven. 
Mom, I had this overwhelming sense of peace when you passed. I could feel Jesus coming to pick you up. My heart swelled with joy. Now that you’ve been gone over a week, I am feeling a bit of emptiness. I think it’s because I can’t touch you or sleep next to you anymore. Please know that you’ll be in my heart forever. Today, I’m feeling particularly sad. I know the waves of heartache will come and go. Tell all our relatives and friends that preceded you that we love them. Give Lola Pacit a special kiss from me. Mom...I’m going to take care of Dad. Visit us in our dreams sometime. Our relatives here have been so supportive. It’s a testimony of how much you were loved. I’ll talk to you in my prayers and in spontaneity when I need your advice or reassurance. I cherish everything you’ve done for me! Love, your Jeffy.
