“Nung huling Sunday po sabi niya, ‘anak ‘wag n’yong bibigyan ng sama ng loob ang mommy ha,” said Marife Ramos, still in pain, physically and emotionally, after the freak accident but granted GMA News’ Mark Zambrano an interview.

But she said that more than the physical pain, it’s the loss of her husband and the father of their three kids that hurts the most.

Ulysses and Marife Ramos, together with their three children were traversing Mindanao Avenue on Tuesday afternoon when a ready mix cement truck flipped on its side and landed on their Honda Brio, crushing it. Marife said she can still remember exactly how it happened.

“Kitang-kita ko po yung reaksyon nung pagkabagsak nung bubong nung kotse sa may ulo ng asawa ko, tapos yung iyak ng mga anak ko,” she recalled.

“Dasal ako nang dasal, please Lord Jesus hawiin n’yo po yung nasa bubungan namin, ang bigat-bigat po,”she said.

“Sabi ko po sa mag-ama, ‘hinga kayo, hinga kayo, ‘wag kayong matutulog.’ Tapos ako nararamdaman ko init-init ng ano namin, hinihipan ko asawa ko para magkaroon siya ng hangin.”

At one point, as if sensing her difficulty, her husband touched her legs to comfort her. “Hinawakan niya po yung binti ko, parang kino-comfort niya ako.”

It took time for the whole family to be rescued. Ulysses Ramos was the last one to be retrieved, two hours later. He was already unconscious by then. Ulysses died later in hospital.

Their puppy, Conrad, which Ulysses bought only that morning as a surprise to this children, was found by rescuers and finally returned to them at Ulysses’ wake.
