Tess retired today so she can take care of her three grandchildren left by her late daughter. I'm so sad since Tess has been with my family for more than 25 years. Ever since I was young, she would greet me "palangggaa" with a hug even if I was acting like a bear ready to break a vase because my day was shit (or I was just being me). Whenever I would quarrel with Alona the destroyer, she would always pacify one of us (but usually it's Alona). I like wearing my clothes until they look like rags but she would try to repair them so I can wear my band shirts or favorite pajamas and not look like a homeless person. She likes plants and always prays the rosary with an audio track. I keep telling her to retire since she's already 72 years old. She refuses because she likes to work and still supports her family including a special child :( I will miss her and I wish she will come back so we can take care of her.
