Below is the translation of the tribute that has touched a lot of people and reminded them of their own grandmothers.
Inang, you took care of me from the moment I was born. Now, when I feed you and give you a bath, I can’t help but cry because I remember when you used to do this for me when I was little. You are 98 years old now, so let us do for you what you used to do for us.
A while ago, I made you stand up and I asked you to try to walk. You told me that you couldn’t do it anymore.
I am forever thankful that you never left me, my siblings, and Mama.
We love you so much. Please try to keep up your strength. We will always care for you as you grow old. You are no longer able to feed yourself, you are no longer able to bathe yourself, and you can no longer walk, so we shall serve as your hands and feet. We still won’t be able to repay you for the sacrifices you made for us.
I shed a lot of tears as I say, I love you, Inang.
The woman later thanked those who had kind words for her and her grandmother.
The woman and her grandmother have an unbreakable bond.
Their bond is priceless and has inspired others to pay more attention to their grandparents.
