It is with a very heavy heart that we announce the passing of our dear Rexa Janina Caroline. We find comfort in the fact that she will no longer be in pain and that she was surrounded by the people she love and who loves her during her last moments.
"Ah, but you are just a dream. A flower that bloomed briefly but sweetly.
Thank you, Rexa Janina Caroline, for being a beautiful part of our lives.
Thank you everyone for your love to RJ and our family."

We would like thank everyone for the overwhelming love and support for Rexa Janina Caroline.
Last Monday, while away from home on a work trip, Rexa Janina collapsed and suffered seizures. Initial findings indicated that she has an aneurysm and she has now been brought to a hospital in Iloilo for treatment.
Rexa had been initially been scheduled for surgery, but her doctor cancelled the operation due to the risk owing to her current condition. They are now decompressing her brain and keeping her stable.
Thank you for your thoughts, encouragement and donations. They are sincerely appreciated.
All donations received will be used for medical costs and other incidental expenses needed for RJ’s condition.

A lot of friends have been inquiring about the condition of our daughter Rexa Janina Caroline, who fell into a coma last Monday due to aneurysm. Some told us to say -- wishing that it was not really happening -- that it was all a hoax. Unfortunately it is not. This is a nightmare that we all want to wake up from. But knowing that God is the Supreme Decider, we know that this is a fight we cannot give up. In the past few days, RJ's high school classmates, college friends and org mates, along with her siblings, have initiated a fundraising drive for RJ who is battling for her life at a hospital here in Iloilo where she was brought after falling unconscious during a work project in Boracay. On behalf of the family, we thank you all for the love that has been pouring in. Most of all, we ask for your prayers for RJ and strength in this trying time.
