A Seaman's Wife Story of Success

   In 1988, Pacita Pamplina lost her husband when the vessel named Singa Sea, where his husband was a crewmember met a tragic sea accident. She was widowed at the age of 38 and was left behind to take care of 4 children the youngest of whom was only 5 months old.
   She received the measly sum of P400 a month from SSS and she knew she had to face the biggest challenge of raising her children. After her husbandís death she worked as an agent in a lending company but was paid on a commission basis.
   With four children to feed, she found great help in her sisters-in-law who provided her with much needed help in order to keep them going. Singa Ship Management also supported her as she faced the enormous task of raising her children single-handedly.

   Pacita never re-married and dedicated herself to her childrenís needs. With inner strength and determination she was able to send all her children to school.
   Twenty one years after, her eldest, Jesipaz Michelle is now a pharmacist who is trying her luck in the United States. The second child, Rachelle is a Medical Technologist and is now working in PGH. The third child, Jechelle is a Computer Science graduate and is working in a lending company as encoder. The youngest, Mery Grace who never saw her father is a full-pledged nurse and is now practicing her profession in PGH.
    Pacitaís story is something to emulate. She showed that with faith and determination one can succeed in life.
