By Ena Krijger, niece of Sr. M. Marcia Antigua RGS


I. Reading

   2Timothy 4:7-8


I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith, now there is laid up for me the crown of the righteousness with which the Lord, the just judge will reward me, on that day and not only me but all those who have longed for his glorious coming.


II. Good morning, my name is Ena and I am the daughter of Gemma the youngest in the family of 5 sisters and 3 brothers. From the 5 sisters, she is the only one who did not have a religious vocation ( instead followed her heart......)

The unexpected death of Sr. Marcia or as we fondly call her  our " auntie inday" has caused as so much pain. But we are consoled by the fact that she is now in heaven where there is no more pain, no nights, not death and no tears.


We thank Our Lord for giving auntie inday " 83 years of life" .


We thank Our Lord for the gift of family and friends who condoled, shared our pains and sorrows, offered prayers, holy masses and gave flowers.


We thank the Lord for the medical people, the doctors especially Tito Lito Almendras, Kuya Jojo Antigua who did their best to help alleviate the physical pain of Auntie inday.


To the Good Shepherd Community who became her family for 49 years and who also embraced us as part of them.


To Auntie Inday

- for taking care of us ( esp. me and my brother Dino), for loving us and providing us with formidable strenght - we cannot thank you enough. We will miss you so much but we will hold you forever in our hearts.


III. Reading


In Romans 14:7-8


None of us lives for himself, nor dies for himself. If we live, we live for the Lord and if we die, we die for the Lord. Either in life or in death we belong to the Lord
