In Memoriam Rini Sutomo

This memorial website has been created in the loving memory of our great wife/ mother/ sister/ friend and loved one, Rini Sutomo. She was born in Yogyakarta, Middle of Jawa, Indonesia on April 07, 1947 and passed away early morning on January 26, 1997 in Pertamina Hospital Jakarta at the age of 49.

Rini sutomo celebrated live, she loves life and live it to her fullest. Those who had the good fortune of knowing her knew this. She was the kind of person who was always doing something, Stopping only in moments to enjoy life. This brave lady never gave up. After all the chemo therapies, tests and surgeries, even after the doctors in
Germany sent her home. She was determined to beat the cancer, she wanted to live.  She was hospitalized in Singapore, in Germany for a year, Cikini Hospital for a month & Pertamina Hospital Jakarta for just two week.  3 years she fought, but in the end when God called she made her peace and let go.

She was a beautiful and loving mother, a loving caring daughter and sister and friend to many. She never realized how many people she touched in her life. Rini had a bubbly character and a great personality no one will ever forget.
We miss her more then words can explain and we will never forget her. We will all remember Rini and she will be in our hearts forever.

Her legacy
"My Mom" - Dimas Dhanardana Sutomo, October 1999 -  

Who was this woman that I loved so much
Who was this woman whose light shines brigter than any star in the sky

Who was this provider of love
This giver of live that gave me shelter when I needed protection
Or kiss me proudly when I did the right thing

Who was this wise friend that had the pretiest smile I have ever seen
Who told me to do the best that I can and gave me a hug if I thought I had failed

Who was carring person that never let me down
Who were always there for me eventhough I thought I didn't need here

She was all those things
But to me She was just mom

Sometimes I look up to the sky with tears in my eyes
In silent I whispered "I miss you"


Siapakah wanita yang sangat kusayangi itu
Siapakah wanita itu yang cahayanya bersinar lebih terang dari pada bintang-bintang dilangit

Siapakah penyedia cinta itu
Siapakah pemberi kehidupan yang memberi perlindungan pada saat aku membutuhkannya
atau memberi kecupan selamat malam sebelum aku tidur

Siapakah guru yang menjaga agar aku tidak melakukan kesalahan dan
senyum dengan bangga saat aku melakukan hal yang baik

Siapakah teman bijaksana ini yang memilki senyum terindah yang pernah kulihat
Yang mengatakan padaku untuk menjadi yang terbaik dan memberi pelukan bila aku gagal
Siapakah wanita penyayang itu yang tidak pernah mengecewakan dan selalu siap membantu walau ada saat aku berfikir aku tidak membutuhkannya

Dia adalah semua itu
Tapi untuk ku dia cukup Ibu

Kadang aku menatap langit dengan mata menangis
Dan dalam kesunyian aku membisikkan kata rindu

"In Loving Memory" - Becky Sutomo, Oct 1999  

I try not to cry when I went to your grave
Instead I try to remember all the wisdom that You gave
Tears never helped me in My way of missing You
Only prayers can support me when I'm in blue

Smilling in cheers, crying in pain
Thingking Your smile made My heart flow in vain
Your eyes, your point of view
It rise with making My problems few

Your heart, Your love
Grow bright like the star above
I knew that Dazzling light
Will make My heart feel right

I remember My favorite toy
That You bought to bring Me joy
How fun those time We had
Eventhough I'm feelin' sad

I hold My self  from sheding My tears
But what came out was a laugh of  fear
Time taught Me well
To believe You are doing swell

Time just run so fast
When I realize 3 years You had Your rest
Sending prayer is all I can do
Just to let You know I miss You



persembahan Ibu Titi Said mengenang 100 hari wafatnya Rini Sutomo

Diantara kau dan kami
dalam dunia yang berbeda
berbatas antara ada dan tiada
setipis udara

Antara kita,
terentang seutas benang cinta
yang dipilin dan dijalin
dengan doa, doa dan doa
untukmu istriku
untukmu ibuku
untukmu saudaraku

YA ALLAH Ia telah kembali kepangkuanMu
Sesuai dengan waktu tadirMu
Tiada Tuhan selain Engkau ya Allah
Sang Maha Pencipta
tempat kami kembali semua

Ya Tawwaabu
terimalah taubat Rini dan taubat kami
orang-orang yang mencintainya

Ya Malikul Mulki
terimalah Rini
dalam kerajaanMU

Ya Annuru
peluklah Rini dalam cahayaMU

Ya A-Majidu
berilah ia kemuliaan surgaMU

Ya Rahman Ya Rahim
Hanya Engkau Maha Rahman
Hanya Engkau Maha Pemberi
Kita berasal dariMU
Kembali kepadaMU

1st report/ ris (sister)  

My beloved Sister,

It has been 8 years since you left me
a long winding road without you
We used to work side by side...hand in hand...
working hard to materilized
our dreams ...

8 years I’ve been moving...
step by step.

It was hard, but I did it anyway

I’ve been walking amidst the light from candles you have ignited on the path that you have shown

The flames of those candles will light my way for all time,

So that I could see the gravel that might hinder me,
(Even though at times I’ve been hindered by a grain of sand...)

Jakarta Pelangi Production,
The Company that we have built 15 years ago is still running
your legacy lives on and has given life

The seeds you planted has grow and flourish to this day

May the grace of God give me strength
along with your sisters, brothers, sons and your daughter

I will keep on building the company on the foundation that you have made strong

so, it it will pass from generation to generation

sing me once again mum... becky sutomo, january 14th,2006  

As her children, we put great memories closely deep in our hearts...mom went away when we were very young...but the memories she left behind was uneraseable and unforgetable ...she knew her time was coming, and so she gave the best of time for her children...making sure her children knows the meaning and the existence of love eventhough is not there in front of our eyes...making sure our future in the right path and are blessed with all the love she had taught us...
after nine years, we can still always feel her...her soul is in our hearts all the time, in every step, in every heartbeat, in every tears and laughter...
she used to sing this soong in several occasions...in the bathroom, karaoke time, in the car, in my most precious times...

I believe the children are our are future
Teach them well and let them lead the way
Show them all the beauty they possess inside
Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
Let the children's laughter remind us how we used to be
Everybody searching for a hero
People need someone to look up to
I never found anyone who fulfill my needs
A lonely place to be
So I learned to depend on me

I decided long ago, never to walk in anyone's shadows
If I fail, if I succeed
At least I'll live as I believe
No matter what they take from me
They can't take away my dignity
Because the greatest love of all
Is happening to me
I found the greatest love of all
Inside of me
The greatest love of all
Is easy to achieve
Learning to love yourself
It is the greatest love of all

I believe the children are our future
Teach them well and let them lead the way
Show them all the beauty they possess inside
Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
Let the children's laughter remind us how we used to be

And if by chance, that special place
That you've been dreaming of
Leads you to a lonely place
Find your strength in love
