Baptism of Isabelle - December 29, 2013
|A tarpaulin Dong and I had done for Wowo Fred for his wake.|
|Wowo Fred was buried on March 26, 2014.|
These were the last moments before his coffin lid
was to be closed. Wowa kissed and embraced his
lifeless body for the last time.
On March 22, 2014 at 2:30 pm, Wowo Fred, passed away peacefully, joyfully, and without pain. His last spoken word was "Amen.", as an answer to Wowa's loud invocation of "In Jesus' Name, you will be alright!" After saying this, he looked out of the window, coughed one last time, then finally closed his eyes.

Wowo Fred, thank you for being my husband Dong's earthly father. For all your perceived and real flaws, the one thing nobody could fault you with, was your unconditional love for your children. Dong is a good husband and father because he learned how to be a good man from you. I am blessed to have known you, Wowo. May you now rest in peace. Enter now into Our Heavenly Father's Loving Arms.
|At Daddy Fred's Wake|
Though we are grieving, we are also "celebrating", thus the happy smiles, because
Wowo is no longer in pain and can now go back to our Creator. The Alejars opted to celebrate Wowo's life.
