The memory becomes a treasure...

Manong Leslie’s 40th Day
This tribute was added by Grace Williams on October 7, 2020
Dear Dad,

Did you enjoy your 40th Day? Are you now in the clouds? Hope you get to receive the message I sent up with the balloon! It was weird that we felt it was you and not mere balloons that zoomed up to the heavens! That is why we were in tears while waving at the balloons!

Bye Dak, I know you will be absent in the body but present always in spirit, and especially in the things you taught us and the guidance you will send us through the Lord. For me, you have become part of the “cloud of witnesses” to inspire and help us attain victory. Thank you for watching over us and cheering us on the right way so that we ourselves will complete our race victoriously. Just like you did! I love you dad and I bless your memory forever.

Hebrews 12:1 “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.”

Hola Dak,

I remember 2 or 3 months ago when Yvette and I were singing songs while hanging out with you, you asked me to sing this louder so you can clearly hear it. This song ‘I will - by the Beatles’ will now remain forever in my heart, always singing it with love, and remembering you especially with these lines:

Love you forever and forever
Love you with all my heart
Love you whenever we're together
Love you when we're apart

And when at last I find you
Your song will fill the air
Sing it loud so I can hear you
Make it easy to be near you
For the things you do, endear you to me
Oh, you know I will

I’ve been missing you more every day, Dad. And I’m having a hard time accepting the truth that you are no longer here with us. But one thing that gives me comfort is that I know that you are now with the Lord enjoying your new life, new body in heaven, without pain, and full of joy...

Te Amo, Daddy!!! Until we meet again...

Dear Lolo,

We remember you each and everyday, and we miss you always. We know that you are now with the Lord, and free from sickness. God has blessed us all, by having had you in our lives. Thank you, and good bye, until we meet again.

Love Darren

Hello Dad,

Good evening.
It's cold here in Barcelona, ​​like when we visited you there In Oregon last December 2018. It was a joy and honor to be able to serve and take care of you during those days. I will miss accompanying you in your room watching TFC shows while eating some snacks.
Even though you were not able to visit Barcelona, I'm sure you are already in the most beautiful place that the Lord has prepared for you.
You will no longer say 'Meron ba tayo dyan" anymore...Because it has everything you need.
Enjoy your new life in heaven with the Lord.

Love you and miss you Dad :)

Today I light a candle for Dad in gratitude for God’s goodness to him. The other day, I read about the verse, “His lovingkindness is better than life.” I did not understand this before but now I know what it means. The Lord gave dad more than another extension to his mortal life (which He has done many times in the past). The Lord gave him more than “life” - he gave dad His Lovingkindness - which is way better than life itself! Because of His kindness, Dad is now in a place and in a state that is far, far better than we can desire or think of or imagine. One day, we will also receive such lovingkindness and will live and worship with Dad in Heaven forevermore. Amen.

I love you, Dad! You are now a new creation in Heaven. Looking forward to seeing you again when my time comes :)

Hello Lolo!

I'm so thankful I got to see you earlier this year! It wasn't the longest visit, but we got to spend some good times together.

Words can't describe the sadness, Lolo. In fact, words feel completely inadequate in articulating our loss, that it seems almost easier to keep it to ourselves.

But today, I just want to say good morning. The weather in Sydney's nice and warm... I think you'd like it. Love you, Lolo!

Good morning dad.

Here's a digital candle for you. It's safe - like your constant reminders about candles and fire.

Your Philippine obituary will be coming out tomorrow. In color! I remember how we would always spread out our Manila Bulletin newspaper and read all the pages. And on Sundays we'd look at the obit section to see if there's anyone we know.

We are missing you more each day, dad. We love you. 

Enjoy your walk with the Lord.❤

Love you lolo. Miss you. ♥️ I would like to dedicate this song to you: Little Wonders by Rob Thomas. I think of you everytime I hear it. I know you're very happy in Heaven.

Let it go
Let it roll right off your shoulder
Don't you know?
The hardest part is over
Let it in
Let your clarity define you
In the end
We will only just remember how it feels
Our lives are made
In these small hours
These little wonders
These twists and turns of fate
Time falls away
But these small hours
These small hours still remain
Let it slide
Let your troubles fall behind you
Let it shine
'Til you feel it all around you
And I don't mind
If it's me you need to turn to
We'll get by
It's the heart that really matters in the end
Our lives are made
In these small hours
These little wonders
These twists and turns of fate
Time falls away
But these small hours
These small hours still remain
All of my regret
Will wash away some how
But I cannot forget
The way I feel right now
In these small hours
These little wonders
These twists and turns of fate
Yeah, these twists and turns of fate
Time falls away
Yeah, but these small hours
And these small hours
Still remain, yeah
Oh, they still remain
These little wonders
Oh, these twists and turns of fate
Time falls away
But these small hours
These little wonders
Still remain

Dear Dad,

We are all missing you so much everyday so we put our hope in the Lord that one day, because we believe in Jesus, we will have a grand family reunion in Heaven - and will enjoy fellowship again above and beyond what we can even think and imagine! Enjoy the Lord's presence and glory, until we all see each other again! We love you, Dad!
