White balloons were released into the air as Bacolod visual artist and Bayanihan dancer Nunistell Mae Fulo-Lee, who was killed by a jobless security guard who attempted to rob her house in Purok 6, Barangay Granada, Bacolod City, last January 31, was finally laid to rest yesterday at the Rolling Hills Memorial Park.
Lee, 41, was a former member of the Philippine Bayanihan Dance Company, and had served as vice president of the Art Association of Bacolod-Negros.
Her mother, Estela Fulo yesterday said “We thank God for giving us 41 years to be happy and to love Inday Mae. I cannot question You. I am ready to let her go because You gave her to us.”
She gave pride to Brgy. Granada. They have learned to accept whatever are the plans of the Lord, Fulo said after a mass at the Triumph of the Holy Cross Parish Church in Camingawan, Brgy. Estefania, Bacolod City, that was attended by hundreds of her daughter's friends and acquaintances, including their relatives.
“Inday Mae, I love you. You know how much I have secured you since you were a child. I miss you and I hope you will show yourself to us in a dream,” she said.
Fulo told her daughter that all her friends and relatives love her.
She also told Lee's daughter, Elaiza Jane, 7, that her mother is now an angel and she smiled. She also assured Lee that they will take good care of her child, she said.
Fulo also thanked all those who condoled and helped them during their bereavement.
Meanwhile, the police have already filed murder and frustrated murder charges against Sandy Sevilla, 27, of Barangay Buenavista in Escalante City, Negros Occidental, before the Bacolod City Prosecutor's Office.
No bail has been recommended for the murder charges filed against the suspect who stabbed and killed Lee and injured her house helper Mary Grace Mupada, 33, of Pontevedra town in Negros Occidental.*CGS
