Ate Lita you will always be in our hearts n prayers thru the years.
Ditse Lita, On your First Anniversary this November 2011, we have offered mass and prayers for you.
Lisa, Anthony & Family
I feel so blessed to have met you. You were such an inspiration to me. I looked up to you as your student. Thank you for all your advice on OT and life.
I will surely miss you.
I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought and decision we make. Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories. We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love. Leo Buscaglia
Loving wife, mother and loving friend. Melita, you will be missed.
Our deepest condolences to your whole family. Take comfort in knowing that now you have a special guardian angel to watch over you.
Susan, I never had the privilege of meeting your sister, but from what I see in this guestbook, she must have been a very special person just like you. God bless you and your family and Melita's family always.
Tita, you will always be in my thoughts and prayers. I've always been told that when I was very small you were always there to take care of me. I guess it's always been your nature to be nurturing and being there to care for others. May you rest in peace now and be taken cared of by all the angels, who i'm sure will welcome you in their arms.
'Melita will be remembered fondly for her gentle smile and kind touch. She will be missed, but her spirit will live on.' Sylvia Rogan, Colleague.
You re always in our thougts and prayers.
Though I didn't personally know Mrs. Apilado,I know her sons Ryan and Eric. I have known Ryan since grade 7 and met Eric in high school. I can honestly say that both her sons are incredible guys. Not only are they extremely smart but they are also kind and thoughtful. They are always ready to help and very modest. If anything, I think this shows what a wonderful mother Mrs. Apilado was. I'm sorry that I never had the chance to meet her. I'd like to express my deepest condolences to the Apilado family and let them know that they will be in my prayers. Mrs. Apilado may you rest in peace.
Dear Tita Lita,
May you rest in peace! I will always remember you as one of the nicest person i've ever met. May you rest in peace. I may not have known you that well, but I'm glad to have met you at one point in my life. I love you, Tita!
I would like to extend my deep and heartfelt sympathy to the Tantoco and Apilado families. May the beauty of precious memories be your comfort.
Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. (Matthew 5:4)
Our condolences to the Tantoco and Apilado family.

"Our sincere condolences to Apilado and Tantoco family"
From Thelma Malabanan Cerezo and family
I was shocked and saddened to hear about Melita's passing. She would always so graciously accept invitations to provide education for the Occupational Therapy students at the University of Toronto. I will remember her gentle, warm and caring spirit. I am so sorry for her family.
Tita hope you will be happy on your second life
miss you already.
Melisa, please accept my sincere condolences to you and your family on the loss of your beloved sister, Mrs. Melita Apilado.
May the good memories left behind, give you strength and we are with you during this time of grief. May the love of those around you help you through the days ahead.
Remember that we care about you, be strong!

God is the master weaver and only He knows when the masterpiece is complete.You are remembered in our thougts and prayers.
Although no words can really help
to ease the loss you bear,
just know that you are very close
in every thought and prayer.
To the Apilado family,
Our deepest sympathies at this time of sorrow.
Those we love remain with us for love itself lives on; cherished memories never fade because a loved one has gone. Those we love can never be more than a thought away, for as long as there is memory, they will live on in our hearts.
We will miss Melita's warm smile.
Ate We will miss you so much, especially during the family holiday gatherings. God bless you. We love you!
If tears could build a stairway
And memories were a lane,
I would walk right up to heaven
To bring you home again.
No farewell words were spoken.
No time to say good-bye.
You were gone before we knew it,
And only God knows why.
My heart still aches in sadness
And secret tears still flow.
What it meant to lose you,
No one will ever know.
Christmas won’t be the same this year
Your family will miss you tons.
but promise me one thing,
watch over your sons.
Tita we will miss you so much. You were one of the kindest titas in my childhood. I am very sorry for the years we were not able to keep in touch. Take care & I love you.
Ditse Lita, you have certainly lived a very fruitful and productive life. A happy memory of your family visiting us when we were in Utah, had a picnic by the park with Susan and her family too. We will miss you, but we know that you will be in a much happier place in Heaven where there is no more pain, problems, and suffering. Anthony Quijano

Auntie, you were a nice and sweet person. We will keep you in our prayers. We miss you dearly, rest in peace. We love you <3
You will always be in our thought and hearts. Your caring smile, we will always remember the joyous times spent with you. From camping around the states to horseback riding. From playing tennis to hiking. Our many bbq dinners and plentiful breakfasts, together we had numerous memories that will never be forgotten. Forever you will be with us.
Yoou were so nice, so kind, so compassionate to everyone. It was truly a blessing to know you. I will miss you greatly.

You are all in my thoughts and prayers during this sorrowful time. Melita I am so happy that I had the chance to meet and work alongside of you; you will be greatly missed by all of us. May you now rest in peace and know the loving embrace of our God.
Hi Ditse, you will be in my memory forever, your smile and caring will be missed, i will never forget our days of camping and hiking together with your family.
My thoughts and prayers are with you in this time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.
Very sorry for your loss. I have worked with Melita for 10 years and her presence will certainly be missed. She was a kind person always willing to help a co-worker in need of assisstance. Thinking of you and family, Sarah Bingler
Melita, Everyday I kept on hoping that you will get better and everyday I see your courageous fight. Rest in peace now and I will treasure my memories of your smile, our conversation about how fast our children are growing up, your look with the bike helmet and our secret sharing of the mango cake in G2. God bless.
The last time I saw the Apilado family was five years ago, when we were living in Utah. I wish those 5 years didn't go by so fast.
My mom wrote about Tita Lita and mentioned that she was the editor in chief of her yearbook committee in high school, I hope that I'm gonna make her proud by becoming one next year.
"For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal."
2 Corinthians 4:17-18
You're okay now Tita. We love you, watch over us.
