its me again. back to back to back ang blogs ko noh.
ok. now back to regular programming. as i’ve said, ito ay tribute to dio. alam nyo nmn cguro n nkalipas n ang birthday at death day ni dio. last oct 12 and 18 respectively. we just visited his grave nung oct 22. at its always nice to see his family. its been one year since we saw them. we also saw she.. ung naiwang gf ni dio. medyo chumabby sya since we last saw her.peace. =) its nice to know na close p rin cla ng parents ni dio.
eniweiz. we got there about 5pm. it was me, mon, kenon, cindy, cep at rhys s car ni mon at ung family nina dio at si she and bro sa kabila (sayang nde nagamit ung diomobile. ung dala-dalang L300 ni dio.hehe). kain kmi ng puto at pansit ni tito roman (msarap sya pero mas gusto ko p rin spag. magrereact n nmn c mon.hehehe) nakita ko n nmn ung nka engrave sa tombstone ni dio. it reads “To die in Christ is to be born again and to live forever.” diong-dio talaga ang nakalagay sa lapida nya. una, to die (patay na sya). second. born again (he received the Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior three months before he passed away). at to live forever (forever living. hehe) galing noh. =) after eating and sharing dio stories at picture taking sa sementeryo. we had to leave. i got to thank dio’s family. i got to thank She. we said a little prayer.. said our goodbyes. and we are on our way na. pero ating tandaan. even if we left dio’s body 6 feet under, even if dio’s spirit went to the 7th heaven, his legacy will always be in our hearts.(ano b yan networking n nmn.)
madalas, pag may nangyayari sa tropa or may gimik, naiisip ko, pano kung buhay p c dio. well.. to the question, what if dio was still alive? here’s my list of “maybe’s”.
- dio might still be trying his luck in networking (nde n yta mauubusan ng networking s mundo e)
- nkagraduate n sya last year p cguro. pero i think, kakatake p lng cguro nya ng board exam. narinig ko s kanila dati na sabay cla magbo-board exam ni mel e.
- mas marami ang outing ng barkada na natuloy. sya kc ang official driver namin e. hehe.
- cguro wlang danielle jessica cna jen at ace. on second thought. nde rin. hehehe.. peace. isang damukmok na sermon cguro mapapala nyo kay dio.hehe
- having said that. araw araw cgurong nasa kna jen itong c dio nung time na buntis c jen. maalaga tong c dio e. bka laging may dalang products pra kay jen.hehe.
- happy cguro tong cna mon at tina kahit n may mga failed relationships cla. may instant bf na cla wid dio e. bka sabihin p nila, hu needs a bf kng nandyan nmn c dio.
- kami ni rhys, nde rin nmn malulungkot. c dio ang source nmn ng mga girls e. mas marami tong mga kachat at ka-eb. kala nyo gaganyan ganyan lng c dio ah.hehe
- nagpaplano n kya c cindy ng kasal? bka nde pa. dadaan muna bf nya sa matinding panunuri galing k dio. =P
- ngka FLP bohol chapter cguro. im sure kasama nmn c dio magbohol. bka nga tropahin nya yung tatay ni robert e.
- mas marami cgurong nashare-an at nakareceive ng Good News because of dio. persuasive tlga tong tao na ito e.
those in the list might or might not have happened kung nandito p c dio. pero i’m sure n if dio was here, the world would be a little bit happier.
so this ends my tribute to dio. may ilalagay p sana akong anecdote tungkol k dio e. pero that can wait til next year. hopefully, nkakapag blog p rin ako dun. parting words lng. we don’t need to pray for dio anymore. kc sure n tau kng nasan sya. let’s pray for the people he left. na sana eventhough it hurts to live a day knowing that nde na ntin sya kasama, they (we) might find strength and comfort n c God n kasama nya sa langit and he’s fervently awaiting our arrival dun. God bless sa lahat ng nagbasa. l8r dayz.
