"Thank you Leelen for sending that 'I prefer to remember the good days... ' photo.  It made me smile.  

I get a notification from ForeverMissed about Koya's anniversary and I  decided to read all the tributes that are in here, again.  It saddened me but .... I read them all and realized that the email I sent to our friends here in VA is not in here.  And so, I am adding it now.


Subject:   Happy news; sad news and more prayer request....e:

Dearest friends in Christ:

Prayers do work! (We know that.) So, Mike and I would like to thank you again for the prayers for our intentions.

The happy news: The prayers worked so well for me and my surgery that I was able to make a trip to Indonesia from 02/25 to 03/03 to be at my nephew's wedding on March 1. They were days filled with love, laughter, fun, camaraderie and bonding. Yes, I felt a little discomfort and inconvenienced due to the surgery but on a scale of 0 to 10, I'd rate it a 1, which was highly tolerable. .

The sad news: After that high of the wedding festivities and after being back here in Virginia on 03/03 for about 2 hours, I got a call that our eldest brother (Leonardo), the father of the newlywed groom had a fatal heart attack and died on 03/04. That is a super downer!!!! He leaves behind four adult children (ages 34 - 40) and two grandchildren (1 month and 2.5 years). His wife, Leni, passed away in Feb., 2012. We are shocked because there was no indication to any of us during the wedding that there was anything wrong with our brother. .

And the prayer requests: So, we need to pray for the repose of his soul and for the family. And we also request for prayers for one of my sister-in-law, Dina, who was diagnosed with stage 4 lymphoma. (We got this diagnosis while we were in Indonesia.)

We don't know why all this is happening now. But we are able to move on because of our faith in Jesus, the Divine Healer and Mary, the Health of the Sick. And, of course, Divine Providence.

When Mike and I say our morning and night prayers, we include a prayer 'for those whom we say we will pray for', and 'for those who pray for us'. That includes all of you and your intentions, our dear, dear friends in Christ. May our Lenten journey this year bring us even closer to Christ. With love and prayers, .Lorni and Mike"

"Today, I join all of you, family and friends, in praying and remembering the loss of DITOS among our midst.
I miss mostly his crude, and rude and non-PC - emails .... he definitely had a 'way' of being all that without being offensive! I haven't
taken him out of my contact list because I still can't believe he's gone!!!
Today, I have a picture of him in my mind, in a golf-course, leaning on his golf-club and the other hand on his waist saying.....'' I wonder if God
plays golf?''
May  Ditos rest-in-peace!"

"Reflections from Atche Lorni

Dearest Family:

'W' = well-pleased.

I am sure that Mita, Papa, Claudia, Mama, Caloi, ALeni and now, Koya, would have been well-pleased with what went on for the past few months. We had our ups -and downs and ups and downs: Dina's and my cancer diagnosis; Nardo and Olive's wedding, and Koya's passing away. I am sure that they will continue to be well-pleased with the way we will carry on our lives here on earth, specially with their guidance and intercession from above.

I don't know if you all know how that 'W' came about. It is fitting to explain it now since the gospel reading of last Sunday was where it originated. At the transfiguration, the voice of God was heard to say: 'This is my beloved Son, with whom I am WELL-PLEASED'. Every time I hear that reading, I am reminded of our family and the Bautista clan because I believe it is one of Mama's siblings who started to use 'W' to indicate one's favorite son/daughter/anyone. During the Mass last Sunday, I could not stop thinking of Koya, Mama's BIG W, and the happenings of the past days.

We all grieve in our own way. Some of you have expressed it in written word and shared it with the rest of us. That is family! .

Thinking back on the different conversations, I noticed that no one really talked about Koya's love for the game of golf and all its accoutrements. The topic was mostly on Koya the father, the son, the ninong, the Koya, the Sarge, the family man, the lolo, the friend, the cumpadre, the confidante, - the man. This is what defined Koya; this is what was important to him..

With the events of the past few months, we have become closer to one another. We all shared in our joys and grief; we will continue to share in our joys and sorrows, too. We will continue to pray for one another's intentions, hopes and wishes; and for one another's health, welfare and safety.

Sarge: we retired the name 'Sarge' and 'Mrs. Sarge'. you are irreplaceable.

We love you very much. And we miss you very much. .

With love and prayers,

"From Kuya Tony

Dear K. Bing,

Thanks for sharing your feelings from the heart for Koya Ditos to the family.

Me too it is slowly sinking into me  that  I lost a brother a friend and a good confidant. We were very close and always call or see each other for the last 19 years of my stay in Jakarta for good or bad times. And I am feeling that void now.

Koya is gone now but I still have 2 sisters and 6 brothers left, I believe he still wants us to be together and close too.

Let's keep in touch as much as we can as siblings and as Capati's.

"From Kuya Bing on his way back to Manila from Jakarta

On our way back home on the plane i wrote down my feelings about koya. This time more of me as yanks instead of corporate bing. I thought i did a good job and even asked nini, kots and nekes to read it. All were teary eyed as they read it. As things turned out i lost it in cyberspace and even my favorite daughter could not find it. The president asked me to do it one

More time but am not sure if the tone will be the same. Anyway, hi am writing this as i reflect on the past few days since koya    
Left us. Suddenly i thought of pa and ma too and how i felt during those trying times. My feelings were different for obvious reasons. When pa joined our creator i was sad and i grieved but i was strong. I was sad because as i told nini then pa deserved a better life and if only he lived another 10 more years he would
Have benefitted from our success. Of ciurse pa lived a comfortable life but he deserved more. It pains me when i recall the time we

Had to give away Pas worldly possessio. There was a watch which koya eventually got but promised others they can have their turn in the future. There was a ring and then a cross and nothing more. Nobody said anything be ause

I am sure we all knew that what pa left us behind are core values which are a lifetime gift. When ma left us i felt different. I felt good she was no longer going to suffer. I felt good she had a full life and in fact i remember she was able to visit all of us in our country of work. Of course her leaving us was a downer as i no

Longer had my mama. My mom who raised me up and who was my most vocal cheer leader as i raises my family and became more successful in my career. Koya initially i was devastated as i was just with him enjoying nad having fun during nardos wedding. I just had to see him one more time and i do appreciate ninis adopted   Children waiting for my arrival before cremation. A few hours before cremating koyas body i pulled a chair, sat down and i just wanted to have my moment with him. We just connected with each other nothing verbal. I was just looking at him all rhe time. Then i stood up went beside his casket and we continued our moment of silence together. I do not k ow how long this took but i rhen bowed my head and placed my forehead to the hands of koya. It was my way of saying koya you are my koya ditos.  This lasted for awhile until i felt he said koya bing you will always be koya bing to me and myfamily. It was only then i stood straight looked at him one last time with the boyish smile on his face and then i looked for nini for comfort. Koya i am already missing you."

"My eulogy for Koya

Good morning my name is Pepot and I am the youngest of the 11 siblings.  Koya also calls me kid or Hay as he likes to give nicknames to us.  Atche is Wings, KBing is Yanks, KDudo is Emo or Billyboy, KPong is Spassky, KTony is Anto or Anthony, Kots is Kumpadre, ACecil is Seng or Nekis, and KBenjie is Bob or Bandido.   Our cousin and his best friend KPet, he is Ching.

Koya loved the family so much and the women in the family have a special place in his heart.  His daughters, Leelen and Nana can twirl him around their fingers.    To his lovely wife, Ate Lens, my brother the tiger and original Macho man is an obedient puppy.  The love they have for each other is very admirable and an envy to many.  And now, after more than 50 years, he can bond with his other baby sister, ate Mita.  His love for Mama is incomparable.  We siblings joke that in Mama’s eyes, Koya is no. 1 and the rest of us are all tied at a distant no. 2, which we all lovingly accept and understand. In fact, every time koya goes home for a visit, we have to fix our schedules and make sure that there is a car and driver available the whole time he is in town.  Kumpadre will cook his favorite asado and if its mango season, somebody will be looking for the sweetest mango.  When planning to visit our siblings in Virginia, Koya would make a long distance call to make sure that Atche’s famous tapioca pudding and Kumpadre’s asado will be there to welcome him.
Before Alena and Leo came into his life, Koya and ate Lens became the surrogate grandparents of my daughters, Paula and Monique. Koya also is godfather to Monique and the bond between them is special.
Koya was a big influence in my life.  When our father passed away in 1981, our elder siblings helped in maintaining our household in BF and made sure that we younger siblings get to finish our studies.  After graduation, koya invited me to try my luck in Indonesia.  I had my apprehension being young and lacking with experience and also having a fear of the unknown.  Koya told me to just fly to Jakarta as his gift and if I don’t like it or things don’t work out I can always go back to Manila. When I arrived in Jakarta, I officially became the 7th member of the Ditos Capati family, the long lost eldest son and elder brother to Leelen, LJ, Nana and Nardo.  What was supposed to be a short stint lasted 10 years and the memories we had together will be treasured forever.  Jakarta will always have a special place in my heart as this is where I started my career, met my wife and started our family.  For this I will be forever grateful to Koya and ate Lens

Koya will always be remembered for his emails.  Some of them are green jokes which make one blush and also hope that they don’t stay long on company servers as Koya would sometimes forget that he is sending these emails to our office email address.  A lot of those emails were also inspirational and educational.  One of my siblings asked Koya if he is still working as he has all the time to send those emails.  Typical Koya response, I am fast and efficient that’s why I have all the time whereas you guys are just slow with what you’re doing.  We will continue forwarding emails but they will never be the same.

Koya, I am very proud to say that you are my brother, a wonderful and loving person.  A friend to many.  Thank you very much for all the love and support you’ve given us, you will be sorely missed and we love you very much.

Rest in Peace, Sarge."

"The eulogy that mom (Cecile Capati-Calub) gave during Tito Ditos' funeral:

Good Morning!

Much has been said on who Koya Ditos was. Much has been said on how he was an inspiration to each member of the clan as he was a living reminder that it is important for us to stay together. For almost ten years, us ten siblings were spread across 8 different countries. I would like to believe that his adulation to Pa and Ma was a great influence on him. He continued their legacy as we have all witnessed.

Family was very important to him. You can feel the unconditional and selfless love that he showered his late wife, Ate Leni, and his children. He was protective of each and everyone and he put a lot of effort for us to be closer to one another.

He embodied what a patriarch should be. A heavy responsibility was passed on to him by Pa and Ma. Credit goes to him as his guidance was a true inspiration.

Koya Ditos and Ate Leni had four children.

To Leelen, the oldest of the four: Your dad somehow prepared you for this. During the wake in Surabaya, it was very touching seeing your siblings consulted you for final say on major decisions. It was very humble of them not to ask “why?”. Perhaps this is one of the reasons why I grieved hard — the transition that you are now the head of the family was getting real.

To LJ, the oldest son: Your dad must be very proud of you. Actually, I saw a part of you in us siblings. You stood like a rock for your siblings. I know you were in pain but you had to be strong. It was very moving.

To Nana, the youngest girl: You know, you completed your dad. Making him grandparents to Alena and Leo completed the circle of his life. More so, you named your newborn son after him, Leonardo. It was unbelievable how your dad and your daughter communicated thru skype. We witnessed one session when Alena was merely a year old. They were communicating in only a way only a very proud lolo and first apo can. It brought tears to his eyes.

To Nardo, the youngest and the newlywed. There is no other way that I would like to remember your dad but on your wedding. I thank you for letting us have a lasting memory with him. You made the occasion more than perfect for Olive and for him. I saw him at his best. It was the impression I am sure he wants to be remembered by: vibrant, full of energy, beaming with joy, glowing, youthful looking, and handsome. You were right, he was like a butterfly during the wedding. He was everywhere!

Jim, Desy, and Olive: I get it from my kids you are amazed at how close the family is. By now, it must be clear why.

Perhaps this is the last time that the 10 of us will be together — all because of our love and respect for Koya. I am overwhelmed and overjoyed that in his last day we are all here. Not only to pay our last respect but to show our support for his children.

Koya, thank you for all the times that you were with us. You may be gone but you will never be forgotten. You are with Ate Leni now, your one and only true love.

I love you koya."

Lunch time prayers going up right now! God bless,
Pam (Sanchez)

Dear Lorni and Mike.
First of all, my sincere condolences on the demise of your brother.
Second, I am utterly shocked.  Third, most times the Cross is too much to
bear.  And this is the Cross that He has given - more symbolic that it is
just the beginning of Lent - to those whom He loves.  He wants to share His
Cross.  Fourth, my prayers continue for you and your family.



So glad you had a good and safe trip and enjoyed the wedding.  

But I was very sorry to hear of your brother's passing--so suddenly and after such a wonderful occasion.  I will pray for him and the family and for your sister-in-law as well.


Oh Lorni. So happy with your news but oh the sadness in your family. Many prayers jane

Dear Friend,

Prayers and hugs for you and your family Lorni.  Leonardo was so blessed to have you for his sister and  friend, I can only imagine your dinner conversations!!!  He certainly went to God's home with love!!

A friend told me last week, he nephew just came down with stage 2 lymphoma, that the stages are not like the stages in the other cancers, in lymphoma stage 1 is near the neck stage two is lower, the chest area,  etc....interesting.  Or something like that.

See you tomorrow!!!  Prayers continued,

Love and hugs,


I am so sorry that you and Mike are going through such a difficult time.  My mom, Ivette and I will keep all of your family in our prayers.  Please take care.

Edna de jesus

My favorite prayer is Jesus I trust in you......someways over & over again.multiple times.....so sorry to to hear of the unfortunate happenings in your family....they will be included in my prayers. How blessed you were to be with your family at a beautiful wedding celebration!
God is good!
Blessings peace & joy,

You're right Lorni, it is our faith that gets us through these times.  I'm so glad you all have happy memories of your visit with your brother.

I'd like to put his name in the bulletin.  Is it Leonardo Capati?

Mike/Lorni, I am so sorry about your brother Leonardo.  What a shock after seeing him at the wedding.  You can count on my prayers.  Adriana"

"I have been fortunate among the Capati's siblings to spend quality time with Koya Ditos in 2013.   I attended Ate Leni's one year death anniversary in February 2013 in Surabaya, Indonesia.  After everyone has gone back to their destination,  I stayed for another week with Koya  Ditos.  He brought me everyday to the Golf driving range to learn basic golf and hired a professional instructor. You know, Koya, he loves his cameras.   He was watching and taking pictures while I was hitting the ball.   During the break,  he gave advises on what is wrong with my swing.  He invited me to go and visit his Company at Modjokerto, Indonesia.   He has a beautiful house provided by the Company with free breakfast, lunch and dinner served.  While he was working,  if he is seriously working, I  spent my time swimming at the Company's pool..  At night, we just sat and watched TV and joked and  talked on any subject.   Again,  in October 2013,  we saw each other in the Philippines when he had an operation.  I visited and made him laugh  at the hospital and was assigned two nights to watch him.  After he checked out and moved to Koya Bing's place for recovery,  I was tasked to watch him for three days for Koya Bing's family had to go to Hongkong.     Koya, I did enjoy your company and your sense of humor.  I missed you and are now in the company of Pa, Ma, Ate Lens, Mita.    Enjoy and have fun in Heaven!!!!  ."

"From cousin Chito Razon:

"I Hear A Symphony"

As a frail kid regularly visiting Ugac Sur, a then remote barangay West of the Tuguegarao town center in the late 60’s, I’ve been exposed to two generations of cousins, the young elementary  students and the high schoolers.

There was a wide age and lifestyle gap between us and the next generation.

We, grouped with K. Guy, K. Pong, K. Tony were in shorts, sando and slippers playing touch games at Gonzaga st. while they in shirts, listening to music and riding bicycles.

The elderly ones which I considered as “untouchables” were Kuya Bing, Ate Lorni, sometimes Kuya Lito or in rare moments Kuya Pet and Kuya Ditos. I would remember they ran the show and controlled almost all activities in the street. (It was different in the Ugac household as it was Tata Paul who prevailed at all times.)

They played games (basketball), gambled (mahjong and card games), fired guns (long and short arms). They’ve been to places we were not allowed to go-farm, riverside, old churches and the ultimate, travel to Manila.

Their group led by Kuya Ditos imprinted in my memory as my 1st parents and dear Uncles and Aunties. Kuya Ditos was a natural leader because he had influence and narrated stories and anecdotes well.

He was closest to his parents, Tata Paul and Tita Aming, the tallest and maybe the biggest (K. Enteng was not in the circle) and the oldest (as K. Lito was always not around).

He had savvy. He operated an Akai open reel  adult role models, next to tape recorder which repeatedly played Supremes Hit with Diana Ross as lead singer. During Christmas Holidays, “Baby Love, I Hear a Symphony, Where did our Love Go, Stop in the Name of Love would be in the loop non-stop while they played mahjong or poker. His player would only stop when there was a brownout which was frequent those days or the power voltage was too low, Tata Paul’s step up transformer could not handle the load.

He liked to boogie. Public dances were events in the small town. K. Ditos would take the center stage to show off his graceful dancing prowess when Boogie is played with his stiff and bended elbow clutching the most popular girls in town. He was a cousin who could upstage his Uncles as he would be allowed to share the dance floor with Tata Nono and Tata Sal who were equally magnificent dancers.

He bluffed well commanding authority at the poker table. Betting against hard core gamblers as K. Lito, K. Bing, Tata Sal, Tata Noy, he was no push over.

He was mischievous, perhaps an impact of his high school Jesuit education and the influence of his cousins. Articulate, he would express what he meant. Whenever the Supremes plays “You keep me hanging on” he would make a point about it.

When most of the families moved to Metro Manila, our encounters were less frequent limited only to the annual New Year’s Eve party hosted by his parents in BF Homes in Las Pinas. As in Ugac, our coalition roamed around the village watching basketball, firing lantacas, watching performances at the open courts while his age groups were enclosed in a room playing cards, eating and enjoying the gathering.

As priorities changed, encounters were less often. Like everybody else going through the cycle of life, he worked, raised a family and eventually migrated to Indonesia. I eventually lost track of the music he liked, the games that he played and the company that he kept. What I know of is he continued to lead an enjoyable lifestyle combining travel, sports, photography events and lately social networking.

All of these are perceptions of a junior lad, looking up to a senior.

But beneath the lifestyle, love for life, the savvy, trail blazing and financial successes, I remember K. Ditos as a loving son, devoted to his family, respectful to Uncles and Aunties and a dear cousin to the 52 of us. These values plus my Ugac Sur experiences are what I cherish most about him.

“I hear a symphony,” a song of the Supremes perhaps describes his influence to us, the then younger ones. “For a feeling that's so new So inviting, so exciting Whenever you're near, I hear a symphony.”

Thank you Koya.

Some stories recalled during Pong’s visit in Manila last 2013.

"Emails from my UP classmates after telling them about the happy news of the wedding and the very sad news about Koya:

Dear Lorni,

That's wonderful news! I am glad that the illness has not restricted your activities. We will continue to pray for your recovery.

I am sorry to hear about your loss.  We will keep his family in our prayers as well.

Hi Lorni

You take care now and God bless you & Mike always.

"From an email from Maria (Capati) Dwyer):

Ate Leelen, LJ, Nardo and Napa,

I hope you are all getting through this tough time ok.  I think we're all still in shock here in Australia.

I just wanted to let you know that I considered Tito Ditos to be the sweetest uncle and I just can't believe he's gone and that we won't be getting his silly emails any more. I'm the first to admit that I rarely respond to anyone via email, but I always responded to him because he was just so thoughtful and kind.

The one thing I will never forget is how amazing he was when my dad was sick. He was one of the first to call and he wanted constant updates. He truly loved his siblings, and the rest of us too.

I'm so glad that Nicholas was able to meet him and spend time with him at the last reunion. He only knows him as Sarge, which is funny.

We're all devastated for your loss.  Depending on when the funeral is, I will try to make it to Manila. It all depends on whether my firm will let me go. Regardless, mum, dad and Gian are definitely booked to go.

Again, I am so sorry for your loss and just so devastated for you all. I find myself bursting into tears whenever I think about him, because we're all going to miss him so much.

Love Maria"

"From an email from Yanks/Bing/Coordinator:

In our family we hav an informal structure on how handle family affairs for example kots is our preaident i was nominatd coordinator and koya was sargent at arms thus he became sarge to us. Sarge in life was the opposite of sarge in the military. He was compassionate, helpful, loving, caring, fun n very accommodating exactly the role expected from him when pa n ma left all of us. I dont think he new he was going as we were all having a great time day before he left us.  But if he had a chance to spwak with me befir he left us being the coordinator he would have said 3 things to me. First he will tell me to remind my siblings of the bautista blood in us. Stay in touch n be close to all. He will remind me of the capAti genes and to
Continue being compassionate n helpful to their needs. Second he will tell me to remind the family to stay close and supportive of each other an more importantly to continue sharing, showing nfeeling the love of the family an lastly he will ask me to talk to thw adopted children of nini that it is alright to be sad to grieve but not lose hope in their dreams and aspirations in his absence because now there are more of them praying and cheering for their success. Sarge will be wit mrs sarge leading the way with pa ma mita and
All relatives looking over them. He will give me the boyish smile and he will close his eyes as that is how he wants to be remembered. Koya dacal a aalamat ne for everything. I am writing this on my way to indonesia to be with him one more time.

Hi Lorni,

My condolences to you!

I know the couple from Jakarta days.  Will the wake of Ditos be in Jakarta or Central Java?  If Jakarta,
I would like to know the details.  Some friends in Manila would like to pay their respects to the family,  so could you give the details of any wake/entombment there?

I have offered prayers for him and his family.

Many thanks,

"From an email from Tessa Razon Artadi:

Salamat, Kchit. Agree with KPet. Such wonderful, poignant memories.
I don't remember much about KDitos. (Palibhasa, latak ako among the 52).
But what I do remember was my first airplane ride from Tuguegarao to Manila
with Mama. I was to fly in for his and Ate Leni's wedding.
And I was their  flower girl.

Today, I remembered him as I opened my Bible.
There, in Zephaniah 3:20, lay a pressed bougainvillea flower,
with the verse " At that time I will gather you; at that time I will bring you
home...," says the Lord."

Rest in peace, KDitos.
I know you're home. Mabbalo.

Your flower girl,

"From an email from Babes Banatao:


sorry for your loss... Ditos has always been the life of any group and will be
surely missed. we did miss him at the last Tuguegarao Blue Boys'61 reunion as
his son was getting married.

I couldn't believe it too when Pet sent us the message... I had to read it 3X to
make sure I was not reading it wrong. Unfortunately Dado is in Chile and I cant
get a hold of him (he does not keep his cell phone on nor read emails
regularly). He will be back here at home on Saturday, 8th.

When exactly will be the wake for him in Manila? we are headed back home again
for some PhilDev activities next week.

Again, my prayers and hope that he is in Peace with our Creator.

Deep sympathies to you and the family,

Babes and Dado Banatao"

Dear Tita Tessie,

Pet and my sisters and I and Jet have been on Viber from around 5 am and we are still in shock. The time I cried was when Pet said that when he was trying to access his BDO account, the challenge question was: Name of your favorite cousin -- and that's when he broke down.

Lito had it so right -- Ditos had a childlike love of life. Like Lito, I will miss his e-mails full of jokes and stories, some of which made me groan and some blush. There were times when I said, O, ano na naman kaya itong joke ni Ditos. Now I will miss him and his jokes very much.

We are just so glad that he was so happy during his last days on earth and he is happy now with his beloved Leni.

Condolences Pepot to you and your siblings, and your families.

We take comfort from the thought that he spent his last days happily with his siblings, children and cousins at Nardo's wedding; that he was in God's grace; and that he is now with Ate Leni. Our prayers for the eternal repose of his soul. He was very well loved. Take care cousin

Gina B. Navarrete

Our deepest condolences, Kuya Pepot. This was so shocking but we take comfort in the fact that Kuya Ditos was so happy last weekend at Nardo's wedding. He is now happy with Ate Leni. We will pray for him and his entire family. God loves him and wanted him in heaven now

Len Hernandez Bautista-Horn deepest condolences, Kuya Pepot and to the whole family

"From an email from Gigi rapadas to Pepot:

Dear Pepot and Capati cousins,

   We all grieve with you on the passing of Kuya Ditos. Ever since Kuya Pet informed us brothers and sisters of his death via viber in the wee hours of the morning yesterday, we have been exchanging happy memories of Kuya Ditos. Probably like you, our first reaction was a combination of shock and a deep sadness, because Kuya Ditos was a very good cousin and a very good man.

   Kuya Pet shared with us how happy Kuya Ditos was at the wedding just last Saturday of Nardo and Olive, "prancing about on stage, toasting his guests". He also shared with us how, during the rehearsals when he saw the couple go to confession, Kuya Ditos muttered to him "Ching, I will go to confession also!" And Kuya Pet kidded him, "Bakit, tinamaan ka ng Holy Spirit?" So he did go to confession, and when he came out he told Kuya Pet "Grabe ang penance ko! I have been asked to read the gospel of St. Michael!" Kuya Pet told him "Walang gospel si St. Michael, baka si St. Mark". And Kuya Ditos said "Good, wala akong penance!" Then Kuya Pet said "Hindi, Ching, basahin mo si St. Mark." And Kuya Ditos said "wala naman akong Bible!". And so Kuya Pet helped Kuya Ditos download the gospel to his phone.

   The story is so funny and so heartwarming, and so Kuya Ditos. But the story also gives us consolation, because we know that Kuya Ditos died not just at peace with all of us, his family, but with God.

   Our Lord's timing, once again, is perfect, maybe not for us who will grieve and weep at our sudden loss, but for Kuya Ditos, who died very happy and at peace with God. It was a quick and painless death - a grace we all pray for.

    I wish I could hug you, Pepot, as you hugged me and my sisters and Kuya Pet in LA when we lost Ate Puput last year. But please be assured of my, our, prayers for you, for Kuya Ditos, and the whole family.

"Koya will be remembered for so many things: his sense of humor, love for family, his wisdom, his kindness, his charm, and his positive outlook in  life. A good motivational speaker, he was a loving and caring son, husband, father and brother. He was also a true and sincere friend to many.

Koya was a very big influence to me. After graduating from college, he invited me to try my luck in Indonesia. Their household welcomed me as the long lost son and elder brother to Leelen, LJ, Nana and Nardo. What was supposed to be a short stint lasted 10 years and the memories we had together will be treasured forever. It's in Indonesia where I started my career, met my wife and started our own family. For this, I am forever grateful to Koya and Ate Lens.

We will miss his emails and as we continue to forward and exchange emails, it will never be the same.

Koya, we are very proud to have you as our brother and there will always be a special place in our hearts for you as you've always been there for all of us. We are devastated with this loss but it gives us consolation that you and Ate Lens are together again and with Papa and Mama, you will continue looking at our family from up above.

Rest in Peace, Sarge"
