Dont worry you will see me here frequently with the rest of friends and family. Again hug me for Emma and I promise to make sure that my brother Beny will log in here every now & then and not to spend so much time on the golf course but for now he undoubtedly needs it. See u nxt time.

It was nice to know that a former colleague and friend of mine , Josie Rizal is also is your kababata and townmate. We worked together in the same dept. while we were at BF in the early stage of our careers. And now as Josie said God works behind the scenes to reunite good friends and relatives. Anyways, I uploaded some photos of you and her and some classmates or friends here on your shrine so you can always get together anytime you all wish. So write your tributes for Mina and am sure she will tweet you back and say am still here.

We spent so many summer months in Calamba exploring the town, playing games, going to church, and simply talking. Those were precious childhood moments. Then we grew up, and kinda lost touch until I heard you got married. I got married a few years later. We had a brief update with our lives at the Rizal Family Grand Reunion last January. God really perfectly orchestrates life encounters. I have not gone home to the Philippines for 15 years, and I'm glad I got a chance to see you, hug you, and talk to you one more time. As always, you were so beautiful, classy and elegant. I miss you, and love you.

I just realized that our birthdays are not that far apart, same with Ramon Elefano, your cousin and also my brother in law. Yours is on the 5th, Mon on the 7th and am the 11th. if you could have waited a little longer the three of us would have celebrated altogether. But its okay we can still celebrate your colorful life here. A Rabbi once said that if you die on the same day you were born, you have made a full circle of your life and your mission is fully accomplished.*****

To honor your kindness and generosity of your time and showering us with gifts whether here or in Manila and providing us with a place to call home whenever I come for a visit - this is your place created just for you. Your memory will live on. I started this journey of being left behind years ago but you did not leave my brother Beny behind, he has me and the rest of the family to accompany him in this life's journey. Forgive my brother for his imperfection am not perfect either...although he can make everyone laugh sick to their belly he is so perfect with that. unless he picks on me. He is kind just like you and a good provider. You have a smart and beautiful loving children and grandchild. After all we are one big happy family. I will always remember when you took the time inspite of your busy schedule to accompany me to Cubao to buy flowers to bring to my reunion, second, again you took the time to take me to the salon for a haircut and you stayed with me until I was done. Those are moments I won't forget. All the jokes and laughter we shared with the family - unforgettable. I hope Emma has prepared some special dish for you to welcome you in the happiest kitchen you can imagine and share each other the finer things in life...and please don't forget to tweet us anytime. Please hug me for Emma - with all my love to both of you.****
