With every breath and every ounce of strength, she inspired us against
her battle with cancer. On Thursday, March 19th, 2009, our loving Lorena
Abad Asperin embarked on her journey to heaven and was embraced by our
Lord. While her years in life were shortened, her abundance of love and
joy will endure in those who adored her.

Born June 7, 1971, in San Francisco, CA, she was the daughter of Renato
Fortin Abad and Lolita Corcoro Abad. She was the supportive sister of
Betty Abad Barnuevo and John Ray Abad and devoted wife to Randolf Jovero
Asperin. As a wonderful mother, her greatest works of art were her
children Ryan Tyler, Lauren Nicole, and Connor Reid.

A graduate of Kempsville High School and George Mason University, she
earned a degree in accounting and later spent her professional career at
KPMG. She obtained her CPA and moved up the ranks within the Company,
eventually reaching the position of Associate Director for the
Mid-Atlantic Region. In the years of fighting her illness she became a
strong advocate for breast cancer awareness.

Lorena was an adventurous cook, aspiring karaoke singer, avid reader,
Dallas Cowboys fan, Grease musical fanatic, and a movie aficionado. She
was the life of the party and the source of constant laughter and joy.

She will be missed dearly by friends and family. Additional survivors
include, Alvin Barnuevo, brother-in-law; Brody and Ayden, nephews;
Rosemae, sister-in-law; and Ken Lowry, Niko, Andrew, Christian, and
Sydney, nephews and niece; Rizalyn, sister-in-law; and Allan Delgado,
Rogelio and Remedios Asperin, parents of Randolf; cousins, Neriza
Tackett and Tom Peters, Lisa and Roberto Andriano, Jeanette and Carlos
Corderio; and numerous uncles, aunties, and cousins from the Philippines.

A viewing will be held at Tuesday, March 24, 2009, from 6 to 9 p.m. at
Hollomon-Brown Funeral Home, Kempsville Chapel. A Mass of the
Resurrection will be held on Wednesday, March 25, 2009, at 1:00 p.m. in
