She is a dear friend, a religious parishioner and a co-staff crew at then MDPH in N. Logan facility. We are sure she will be missed as a pioneering pillar of Fil-Am community in Lansing. Everlasting peace Kaka Ines.

I so dearly love Tita Ines and will surely miss her smiling face. She was the most gracious, generous and loving person and a whiz with plants. Rest in peace Tita Ines.

Tita Ines had a great sense of humor and will fit in perfectly in Heaven! She was always so loving, friendly, gracious, and interested in everyone’s life. She offered her sweet and kind help and wise advice to me many times which was truly a blessing. I dearly loved Tita Ines and will miss her greatly! I am praying for her family that God gives them strength and courage during this most difficult and sorrowful time.

Tita Ines was the sweetest person ever. I will never forget her delicious bibingka and how she always made a point of making it for me when I was home to visit my parents. She certainly brought a lot of light and kindness into the world. I won’t forget her. May she rest in peace!

She was a close friend to my parents since 1967 when the Filipino-American community in Lansing was just a handful of families. She had been part of our extended family ever since and she was matrimonial “Ninang” to me and Solie, 48 years ago. People addressed her as auntie, tita, manang but to my parents together with the elders of the old Lansing families, she was always Ba Ines.
With tears and sadness, Solie and I said our earthly goodbyes to Ba Ines two weeks ago. We had a beautiful conversation with a deep sense that we will see each other again. She told us she loves us and we told her we love her. Those three words best articulate our sentiments and affection for her.

Here’s to you, Ba Ines. To a life well-lived and for being a source of inspiration and affection to all that you’ve touched in your life. We are grateful for your presence and influence in our lives. Thank you and have a safe and blessed journey back to the loving arms of our Father. Till we meet again.
Love always.

We send our heartfelt condolences to the Libiran family at this difficult time. Cedric and Emily are two of our best friends and we know that Cedric’s dear mother helped to make him the wonderful man, husband, father and friend that we have known for over 30 years. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Tita Ines asked me about my kids and grandkids when we spoke on Monday before Easter. She was selfless and generous to the end. My heart goes out to you Tito Basilio, Carlos and Christine, Cedric and Emily, and the beautiful clan. May our Lord Jesus comfort you with the promise of eternity in heaven with Tita Ines waiting there with glorious goodies she’s made.
