Dulce DeSantos-Guzman

It is with deep sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our dearest hulasistah, Dulce. She peacefully died in her sleep early Tuesday morning, the 2nd of August, 2016. She is so much loved by her only daughter, Stephanie and her husband, Hernando. They would have been married for 30 years on August 18th. She was the beloved daughter to Luis and Priscila DeSantos and sister to Apollo, Lydia, Olivia and Cielo. On her husband’s family, she was the daughter-in-law to Lydia Guzman and sister-in-law to Dr. Leonardo Guzman. Dulce will be missed tremendously by all her family and friends. Hernando & Dulce were just in Hawaii this early July visiting her favourite place on earth. She loved Polynesian and Ballroom dancing.

    Dearest Auntie Dulce,

    I can’t believe that you are no longer with us…just the other we were talking about you and remembering your laughter and your sassy moves, you are truly a joy to all of us, but perhaps God has a better plan for you up there in the heavens above, make sure you keep those Angels in line with your eccentric personality, I believe that one is never gone from this world, but simply in a better place where only happiness exist and no pains or worries. You will always be in our hearts, “life goes on” as you say that spirit will live on in all of us. Love you. Blessed Be.

    Our dearest Dulce, you have touched our hearts in so many ways. You always welcomed us in your home like we were the most important people in your life and we felt this way each time we were with you. You have the most contagious laughter and personality that I guess the angels in heaven want to experience the joy of having you around, too. God brought you on earth because you are a great example of strength amidst pain and He knows that you have fulfilled your mission and so has finally called you home. We are going to miss you, hulasistah. Thank you for making us feel so special for the entire friendship that we had. You will always be loved but I guess heaven needs another happy angel. Thank you for blessing us with your presence. Rest in the eternal peace and love of God.

    Praying for you and sending you our love at this very difficult time, Dean and Steph. May God’s love and Spirit be with you both every moment of the day.

    Raffy, Jackie, Deanne and Ria

    We didn’t see each other much, but when we did we talked as if we’ve known each other for a long time. You always had fun stories to share , and your infectious good humor made you always stand out. With your bubbly personality, you will surely be missed by all. Yet we believe Heaven celebrates as God welcomes you into His eternal kingdom.

    To Dean & family, know in your hearts that Dulce is in a better place and though she is no longer physically here, she will always be present in your hearts. We pray that God may give you and your family the comfort and peace that you seek and the strength to move forward.

    From Jun & Gigi De Los Reyes

    I’m so glad to have met you through Stephanie. Although we only met in person a couple months back for the first time, I felt like I’ve known you for forever. Your charming personality, caring attitude will always be remembered. Thank you for being such a huge supporter of our dance group and I promise that we will make you proud. We’ll bring Steph to Korea one of these days, just you wait! Miss you lots already,

    Dulce, we will miss you dearly, remember you with love, and honour you whenever we are together. Our friendship was rare, as we spent so many vacations together, enjoyed family dinners, and on Friday nights would have dinner, ice cream, and sing together.
    You always gave more than you received, it was a privilege to call you friend.

    Love Danny and Steph.

    Auntie Dulce,

    I still feel bad that I couldn’t be there with the rest of the family in your passing. Condolences to Uncle Ding and Sam. I will miss Auntie a lot. Christmas holidays and gatherings will never be the same without her. I truly, truly truly hope that she is resting in the purple flower covered heaven she dreamed of. I’m sorry I didn’t have the time to sit down and paint it for her.

    I love you and we will meet again Auntie!
