Life is very unpredictable and when we lose someone then we realize how important they were to us…. May God give you all the strength to face these tough times
The day God decided to take you away. I’ll never forget your soothing voice, my dear cousin YOU were just like a big brother to us. Kuya Junior, rest peacefully in God’s loving arms….
Dear Junior, I am glad I had a chance to tell you, on many occasions, how very proud I was of you. I still AM a very proud sister. You accomplished so much in your lifetime. Most of all, you stepped up when Mom and Dad needed you most.
Oh how we miss you!!
Rest well, dear brother. “To absent from the body is to be present with the Lord”, said the apostle Paul. For that I am very grateful.
Dear family of Virgil- I was reminiscing with my sister about the old days growing up in Brampton. And now we used to go to tape dance shows for a show called Boogie in downtown Toronto. Virgil was my dance partner. I am so sad to hear about his passing and I wish I had reconnected with him earlier. My sincere condolences to you and your family.
