This Kid Hugged Mom's Coffin And Asked Why She Didn't Sleep Beside Him
"Bakit di ko katabi na matulog si Mama?"
This (big smiler) five-year-old boy, Khayne Kheian Naelgas Castro, lost his mother Katherine "Kaye" Naelgas Castro on 25 June while giving birth to his brother, Cyril Khayzer, in the local hospital located at San Jose, Mindoro Occidental
During Kaye's burial, her mother-in-law, Marichu Gabriel (Chuchubelles Gabriel), saw Khayne dragging a chair to step on so that he could look at her 'sleeping' mom inside the coffin...
What Mrs. Gabriel witnessed totally broke her heart. She shared her sentiments to her friends on Facebook and posted his photos on her timeline
Mrs. Gabriel asked on her post, "How do you explain when your little kid asks, "Bakit 'di ko katabi na matulog si Mama?" (Why is Mama not sleeping beside me?)
"He dragged the chair by himself and climbed to embrace his mama. My heart stopped when I saw this," added Gabriel on her post.
Three days after Kaye's death, Mrs. Gabriel recorded Khayne singing KZ Tandingan's song, "'Wag Ka Nang Umiyak", and dedicated it to her mother
prayers for your strength and peace.
