Morbid as it is but I chose to write about death. Whether we like it or not, death is just around the corner. In fact, friends and relatives, young and old, have gone ahead of us. I had deleted my scripts accidentally by clicking spam, not knowing it will delete it. I am rewriting this column for the second time. Teehee.

In this column’ I would like to condole with the Aizon Family, especially to Tony and Grace Aizon, for the demise of their mother, Senora Carmen Aizon, who passed away last Sept., 15 and on the 9th day, Saturday., a mass was offered by her family on her behalf at Guiwan Parish church. Dinner followed at the residence of Tony and Grace residence.

Our deepest condolence too, to Meldy Sator and family for the demise of their loved one, Johnny Sator, a good and loving husband and father. Meldy is the sister of former Vice-Mayor Nonie Aranez and Thelma A. Tanis, who incidentally was my classmate in UZ, the former ZAEC, belonging to high school batch ’61. We are hoping she’ll be around on the second week of October  as we will be celebrating our golden Jubilee, which will begin on the 8th with a parade at the Pettit barracks that will wind up at the UZ gym at Veterans Avenue.

The Camins family is also mourning on the demise of Jaylie Ross, son of Ollie Camins and the late pretty Joy Mariano, who became our star dancer, when the late Cholito Miguel and myself, formed a dance troupe in the early eighties. Again, we would like to extend our deepest sympathy to the Camins family. We know the pains the family is suffering, because just seven months ago, we also mourned the death of my son-in-law, Col. Leonard Vincent Teodoro. Our daughter is now a single parent and she’s trying her best to move forward.

Death does not choose its victims. They can be young or old, the sick or the healthy, but it doesn’t matter because we will all end the same way. A Bible verse states that death comes like a thief in the night. We can never tell when. So, just like the Boys Scout motto, “‘always be prepared with our spiritual being”. Did I scare you?
