Remembering a Happy Day During a Day of Mourning

Farewell, Ninong Jess. You are truly loved by your country, especially by the people of Naga City who know more about who you really are and what you are about – servant leadership, integrity and humility.

Here’s a photo of happier times, when you personally (not by proxy!), and officially became our godfather. You simply took a bus on the way from Manila to Naga City to get to our early morning wedding on time. My brother was on that bus, also on the way home for the wedding. We used to joke about how the bus operator did not play one of his usual pirated DVDs knowing that you were on board.

Thank you for taking your time to come to our special day, five years ago.

Farewell, Ninong Jess. You are truly loved by your country, especially of the people of Naga City who know more about who you really are and what you are about – servant leadership, integrity and humility.

Here’s a photo of happier times, when you agreed to become our godfather. You simply took a bus on the way from Manila to Naga City to get to our early morning wedding on time. My brother was on that bus, also on the way home for the wedding. We used to joke about how the bus operator did not play one of his usual pirated DVDs knowing that you were on board.
