We choose to celebrate Mom’s birthday (May 8) every year instead of her death anniversary (May 4). She would have been 65 today. While looking for photos of her with Jude, I came across this article I wrote for our family newsletter in 2006. Thank You, YHVH, for having given us a wonderful mother, Pearl Rustia Acebron—we truly praise You for her life, which continues on through us. We couldn’t have asked for a better mom than her, who taught us the most important things in life: Faith, Hope, and Love.
