Amalia Fuentes & Albert Martinez' Family Should Reconcile This Lenten Season For The Peaceful Repose Of Liezl's Soul

IN THE SPIRIT OF the Lenten Season, we hope Amalia Fuentes will be less combative with the bereaved husband and children of her late daughter, Liezl Sumilang Martinez. Liezl and Albert Martinez' eldest daughter, Alyanna, posted in social media that the public should not believe everything being said against their family after Amalia had herself interviewed on TV and assailed them for allegedly excluding her in the eulogy for Liezl before her cremation.

That obviously got Amalia's goat and she is now spewing venom against Alyanna, saying that Alyanna's decision to live in with her boyfriend was one of the reasons why Liezl got more stressed and finally perished. She added that Alyanna doesn't know how to be grateful to her when she's the one who spent for her delivery nearly 30 years ago, amounting to $4,000. She even said that she wants that amount to be returned to her by Alyanna.

No doubt the media will be delighted to feast on their ugly exchange of words, as this is the kind of dirt that most readers love to read. But this ugly fighting in their family will no doubt leave a bad taste in everybody's mouth, just like what's happening to the Barretto family. How can they achieve peace for the repose of Liezl's soul if the loved ones she left behind are quarreling like this? We pray that Alyanna won't answer back and for them all to reconcile soon for the sake of Liezl, if they really love her and care for her memory.

We're also praying that Melissa Mendez and Ray Pamaran will take advantage of the holiness of this season of Lent for them to look inward and discern where they want their current conflict to lead them if they won't allow forgiveness and repentance dwell in their respective hearts. Easter is a season redemption and rebirth, so here's to the both of them on their road to peaceful reconciliation.
