Farewell Jena

If someone would ask me if I die today, would I be ready? I would surely answer; I am not ready to die! That is human nature and it holds true to most of us! There is so much in life that we hang on, there is so much to accomplish and most of all, we worry too much of our family that we will leave behind.

If only we have the chance to choose between life and death, we would surely choose life! But when death comes, we cannot ask for another day. It will be the end! No one can vouch us for another week or two. Only God knows when and how we die, and we are all subject to follow our fate. And I, embrace that truth! Our body is sacred and as long as we breathe life in every minute of the day, no matter how tired we are and no matter how terrible our days went by, we owe this gift from the Ultimate Creator of Life.Jena was my co-teacher for 12 years. We taught the first grade and when I was assigned in that school, she was already there making her name to the community. I would say she had the best classroom in the first grade level. Her room was organized, clean and the students were well-behaved. When you need visual aids, she would share what she has and she was a good mentor too.

Jena was a very resourceful person. Most of the time, we were the last person to go home because we had to set the classroom for the class on the next day. When I had to finish something and it's already dark and no one is around the school campus, she would wait for me. Yap! She would keep me company and I can remember vividly that she was there with me the whole time. She lives nearby the school so, there is no rush for her to go home. It was a nice gesture, right?

We talk about everything: school, family, kids, life, love, little naughty secrets and yes, she can keep secrets. As a friend and as a person, she was loved by many and a well-respected teacher in the school and the community. Like you and me, she was neither a perfect friend nor a perfect teacher. Others may despise her, like you and me. No matter how we tried to be a good person, we cannot please everybody. She was the kind of person who stand firm on her ground. She was a very career-oriented and very motivated person. She was full of life, and she respects other people. And at the age of 41, she died of cancer. Rest in Peace Jen.
