To the Adraneda Family, Please accept my family's heartfelt condolences. My fondest memories of her were her soft spoken nature and the fact that she was always present for all of our celebrations as friends. Remembering our time together as friends and classmates always brings a smile to my face. Farewell my friend and rest in peace. Jonathan Piga and family

Words cannot express our sadness for the loss of our beautiful Genie & Auntie Genie. To know her is to know a kind beautiful woman, who would do anything for anyone. She adored her amazing family and enjoyed every second of spending time with them. We will always remember the birthday parties, brownies, graduations, holidays, and the best times we all shared with Genie and we now will treasure the memories!! We love you Genie! Alan, Priscilla, Heather, Jay, Amy, Tom, Beth and Tim. Logan, Landon, Maria, William, Layne and Baby Lawson will never forget Auntie Genie and all the special treats she would send them. We’ll never say goodbye, we will just see you later xo.
I am so saddened to hear of your loss.

I still can’t believe that I am writing this. We have a thousand miles in between us but you have always made us feel closer by texting, asking me to greet everybody here for birthdays and anniversaries and by constantly asking how the kids are doing. Your thoughtfulness will always be treasured and surely missed. Thanks for everything you have done for me Ate. It won’t be the same, the next time I visit New England. But as painful as it is to accept this reality, I am comforted by the fact that you are now pain free and at peace. We love you Ate and we will always remember you!

I cannot even imagine navigating through adolescence without Genie by my side. Genie was my first childhood friend; she is and always will be my ‘roots.’ Roots feed and nourish a tree for life; all from underground. Genie’s spirit will be a part of my life always because we grew from the same soil, with the same nutrients and sunlight. And we grew together. I have many joyous memories with Eugenia… La Femina modeling school- Genie and I learned how to be ladies together. We learned how to apply makeup, how to walk like a model, and we learned how to ‘fine dine’ with class, using all the proper utensils. Genie and I were always chosen to model clothes because we were all skin and bones. Boy could she work a runway with her elegant stride! Genie had some modeling in her- she was a natural! Clawing my way through the awkwardness of being a teenage girl was a lot easier with one person who made me feel normal. My one person was Genie. Genie was not a natural at softball, however. In fact, my dad recalled a memory from coaching Genie and my softball team today. Genie and I both had the same goal as softball players: avoid the ball at all costs. My dad remembered the day our uniforms arrived. Genie and I were devastated. The stripe on the pants was navy blue and our jerseys were royal blue. This was the most emotion we both showed during the entire season. It was a crisis! I also credit Genie for teaching me how to dance. She might not want the credit if she saw me dance today…. It all started in the garage at her childhood home on Francine Road. I can still hear the boombox sounds- rewinding the cassette, pressing start, and waiting about 30 seconds for the sound to start. The sound Genie and I were waiting for was the beginning beats of Janet Jackson’s ‘Control.’ The only sound that could break us away from our grueling hours of practice was the sound of the stove bell signaling that Marilyn’s Puto was ready. Marilyn fed us delicious Filipino steam cakes and we would rationalize a break from dancing to refuel. We had our routine memorized and had huge dreams of being contestants on Star Search. I’m pretty sure Genie and I were banking on producers just ‘somehow’ hearing about how great we were and showing up in Raynham, MA, begging us to be on Star Search. I’m glad we both had back up plans! Fast forward to another huge life transition: college. Genie was also a huge part of my college experience as we were roommates at Boston University. Our little apartment on Buswell St. was always filled with aromas and laughter. This time the aroma was Adobo that Genie was cooking in our tiny little kitchen. The laughter came at any and all hours of the day. Genie put in many hours studying and working hard. But we found time to learn, together, how to be adults. How to live in a big city. How to have fun and work hard. The part of me that I am most proud of can be directly tied to the impact that Genie has had on my life. She taught me to be a kind person; you never know what someone is going through. She taught me to be open-minded and accepting of all cultures as you learn something new from everyone you meet. She taught me the value of hard work and perseverance. She taught me to accept myself exactly as I am. For that, and for all her love she shared with me, I will be eternally grateful. I love you Genie.

Tony, Cory, Anthony, Marilen, and Allan... I will always remember Genie as my very first friend. I fondly recall picking flowers, jumping over rocks, drawing pictures, learning to ride bikes, staying close on our first day riding the school bus, and writing notes in school. I'll never forget Genie's bright smile and her little giggle when she laughed. Your family has such a special bond and I believe that although Genie is gone, she will always be with you in spirit. My heart is with all of you as you grieve such a heavy loss. Sending all my love, Keri

As parents, explaining the loss of Ate Genie to our 7 year old son, Gabe, was something we hope we never had to do. But Anthony and I felt that Gabe was ready and he would want the opportunity to hold her Tita (aunt) Genie and talk to her one last time. So he told Ate Genie, "Tita, thank you for taking care of me. I love you. I will miss you. I have you in my heart forever." He held her hand and sang, "Take Me Out To The Ball Game." It was such a touching and emotional moment. I looked at Gabe and reminded him of what his Tita Genie once told him that if he misses her, just look at the stars in the sky, she will be the brightest star watching over us. Ate Genie, this gives us comfort that you are in heaven now and no longer in pain. We miss you so much, not a day goes by that we are not thinking of you. Thank you for everything. We love you.

My family and I never had the chance to really know her personally but Cristy told me about Gabe’s loving gift for her, which is enough for me to know how wonderful she was with Gabe. Our condolences.

My deepest condolences to the Adraneda Family. Genie will always be remembered as a woman of emotional and intellectual intelligence, a strong person who looks at the positive side even during difficult times and most of all a supportive, thoughtful and loving friend. Thank you for the gift of friendship Genie! I will forever cherish our happy moments during medical school. May God grant you eternal peace.

I still cannot believe that I won’t be able to just call, text or FaceTime with you anytime of the day and that I won’t be receiving your calls, texts and Facetimes any time during the day. You will always be remembered and cherished in my heart and in our family’s hearts my dearest cousin, my twin. Thank you for always being there for me. I know you’ll be watching over us, Rest In Peace. I love you Chica.

I am so sorry to hear about Genie. Although we didn't keep in touch, I have such great memories of our friendship. Our fun time in high school studying or just hanging out. I remember a trip to Cape Cod with my family spending time at the beach and playing mini-golf. Please know that I am thinking of Genie's family at this difficult time.

Dearest Genie, As our family gathers over there to bid you our earthly farewell, my heart breaks once again & my tears make silent tracks down my face. Too far away to say goodbye in person. Wishing I was there with everyone in Massachusetts instead of here in Alaska. Regretting the passage of time & the distance between us. So proud of you Genie & what you have accomplished in your short life. From our youthful “family summers” together fishing & playing ocean side to the indomitable fighting spirit you always showed. Never giving up nor backing down. Challenges were always accepted with a flash of your smile & a confident gleam in your eyes! Grateful for the positive impact you had on others that surrounded you. Thinking of the many lives you have touched. Of the healing comfort you have given to others. Although gone from this earth, you will live on in my heart & in my memories. Forever young, forever beautiful, eternally brave. Utmost respect & admiration for you just being you! Genie, please look down upon us from Heaven once in awhile and touch us with the grace of your laughter & sweetness. You are so incredibly missed. Promise: I will make sure you are never forgotten. My children & my grandchildren will know of you. And of how you left us all too soon. Give our loved ones with you, a tight hug & a kiss from us. We will take it from here. We will take care of each other as you would have us do. Rest in love & peace Genie. Until we all meet again...

Genie was the very first person I met at Boston University, the first person I tried coffee with at Espresso Royal, the first person I ever went out dancing with. She was a bridesmaid at my wedding and although we didn’t see each other often, I always held her close to my heart. I am fortunate to have been able to share some of her light and warmth. I will sincerely miss her.
