August 25 Mass for Rene

Last Monday, the Manila group offered mass for the eternal rest of Rene, Men's husband. This was at the Chapel in SM Mega Mall. Only three of us were able to make it though due to work and other commitments of the rest (Ed was in Bangkok, Bert in Davao, Tess in Bicol, etc.).

After the mass, we had our lunch in the same restaurant where we celebrated Maning's birthday. Here are the pictures.

Hi Guys,
You are so admirable! Despite distance, you really show your sympathy, support and solidarity to our grieving classmate. I feel bad that I could not even attend the memorial service due to work schedule. I hope Men understand. Anyway, I will have a mass in his honor.

Your pics look great by the way. Kahit tatlo lang, pero parang marami (i.e. in spirit!)

I have received a vm from Marybeth about Susan being in the Bay Area. Hopefully, we can round up the group this Saturday to meet with her. Joe Sales had already called me and he will be available.

Men-I know it is too soon to think of fun but if you feel that joining us will somehow relieve the pain of your loss, we will be delighted to have you. Just let us know.

Marybeth-tried to return your vm but unable to connect. I'll try to call later today but in case you don't hear from me-I'll make myself available this Sat. for Susan's get together. Where's the venue? Or shall we pay Men a visit if she is up to it already? Let me know.

Sama na ako in spirit. I am having a quiet time here in Vientiane. A land of gentle people, nice place full of temples, great culture and slow life. Ang ganda! Wish you were all here. Lots of hugggssss……..

Hi Guys,

Thank you for your August 25 mass fo Rene. You are all admirable for your support, sympathy and understanding. Somehow it lifted my spirit. Salamat for all the prayers, too. After I tend to legal matters, my kids want me to travel, will try to include Philippines. Once again, thanks for everything.

Ingat all,

No problem Men…. Wud suggest you to try Europe. It is a really different place, culture, people and values. Maganda. Try Italy, Germany, France. Avoid UK and Moscow by all means. Lots of hugggssss……..
