I'm Crissy Leong, Ana Leong's niece. My Auntie Aning recently passed due to a head injury that doctors were unable to perform surgery on. She passed peacefully on Tuesday at San Juan Medical Center, Metro Manila, Philippines. She was 84 years old.
She was a huge a part of our lives growing up. She didn't have any children of our own, but she had me, my brothers (especially Ian, her favorite), and my cousins. According to my mom, she would sometimes show up at the exact moment she was needed. I was scrubbing through family videos the other night, searching for her face to edit a memorial video. I rarely saw her on camera, but her voice was always present in the background. She was always there; at every birthday party, every family gathering, or even when we were just playing in the backyard. And when we grew up, she returned to the Philippines to spend her golden years in the Leong family home with her sister Auntie Mely.
We are making arrangements from California, as we are unable to travel due to COVID. If you would like to donate money toward the funeral arrangements or would like to help Auntie Mely, you can do that here.
Thank you for remembering her with us. Thank you for your prayers and words of comfort. God bless you.
