I'll miss you forever Lola...


You meant the world to me Lola... Thank you for everything. Thank you for the honor for letting me be called your eldest apo...

I love you Lola. I'll miss you forever.

================================

I went to your room earlier Lola. I couldn't help but cry... Seeing your clothes, your bed, your bags. I miss you soooo much :(

But I know you're happy with Lolo now. And you're right, this is just temporary. We will meet again. I can't wait for our reunion for eternity...

Please watch over us...

Hey Jiggy, I hope you're doing ok now in coping with the loss of your beloved lola. Masakit talaga ang mawalan ng mahal sa buhay...lalo na pag ika'y malapit sa kanya. Kung ang buong bayan nga ay nagluksa at lumuha sa paglisan ni Tita Cory, ano pa kaya ang nararamdaman nyong mga taong malapit sa kanyang buhay?

Ilang oras matapos kumalat ang balita noong August 1, inulan ng pagdadalamhati ang YouTube channel natin (YouTube.com/NinoyAquinoTV) kung saan ang historic U.S. Congress speech ng iyong lola ay naging popular muli sa kamalayan ng lahat (from only 16,000+ views on July 31 to 125,926 as of this writing); tanda na hindi pa rin nakakalimutan ng bayan ang iyong lola! Kung mababasa mo lang ang kanilang mga komento at papuri sa ating channel at sa mga videos nila (the U.S. Congress speech and your Lolo Ninoy's speech in L.A.), talagang nakakatuwa at nakakataba ng puso!!!

Kahit malayo akong kamag-anak ng iyong Lolo Ninoy, gaya mo, PROUD na PROUD ako na may dugong AQUINO na dumadaloy sa aking katawan!

Sorry if I got carried away with my long message. Kung magkakilala lang sana tayo ng personal, I would've offered you my "crying" shoulder.

Cheer up, Parker! Your lola loves you so much and we know it! I'm sure she's having a coffee break with your Lolo up there and telling him stories about the good times she had with you! =)

Ninoy and Cory: TOGETHER AGAIN!

God bless you bro Jiggy! See you around The Tangled Web! ;-)


Tuloy and LABAN!("L")

i was never an advocate of any politically related matters of our country. minsan, wala rin akong pakialam sa nangyayari sa bansa... but after Madam President Cory's loss, I finally realized that our lives now might be really difficult if she didn't gave up herself for the country.

hindi pa ko buhay nung edsa revolution but i was born during your lolas presidency, with due respect... si Pres Cory lang ang tiningala ko sa lahat ng inabutan kong presidents and now, I can finally say that she is indeed a PERFECT person.

i actually miss my lola when i see tributes to your lola on tv. my lola also passed away a couple of months ago and i know how hard it is to lose someone lalo na kung kasama natin sila nung lumalaki tayo. :(

God bless you and your family and Thank you very much for sharing one great person to our country, that's your lola.

Hi Jiggy! I was moved to tears with your Tita Kris' message during the requiem mass for your Lola. Heartbreaking but only God can relieve us from the pain of losing someone we love.

Your Lola may not be the perfect leader, and I learned that every leader has his own shortcomings and mistakes. But your Lola has redeemed us from the dark period of dictatorship and stood up for the fight for democracy. On a personal note, I truly admire your Lola for her steadfast faith to God and her desire to see change in this broken nation.

I am a scholar and I was touched when I learned that she wanted to help students to study, and her dream was fulfilled when she established the Ninoy Aquino Foundation. It made me realize that I should not let go of my goal to help Filipinos, by promoting the good cause of education.

Condolences to your family, Jiggy. We pray for your Lola and your family.

Hi Jiggy! hope everyone in your family had a rested already. We here from overseas attend the wake of Lola Cory via internet. Since there's no way for us to attend physically as much as we wanted.

Now, I would like to send you my personal message to Pres./Tita/Lola Cory. I really admire Lola Cory more as a person. :D

It is a rare privilege for us "the new generation" to know a truly ONE OF A KIND LEADER like Tita Cory who stood by our motherland in times of glory and pain. She may not have the most brilliant mind, however she gained the most HIGHEST respect and love that any leader or a person could ever get from the people.

Truly, Tita Cory made a graceful exit as her life ceases and for that TWO THUMBS UP for you OUR BELOVED and OUR DEAREST Tita/Pres/Lola. Cory. Again, many, many thank you for all the sacrifices you have done for the welfare of all our kababayans. Thank you for your selfless love that you showered upon us since day one. Thank you for teaching us to love and appreciate our own country and fellowmen now more than ever. Thank you for inspiring us to be a better person than we are now. Lastly, thank you for making us realized the importance of praying and developing a close relationship with God and Mama Mary in our daily battle in life. We owe this everything to you and to Sen. Ninoy.

I will end this message with a heavy heart and with tears, farewell to you Tita/Pres./Lola, the entire Philippines will SURELY MISS YOU. We love you and one can ever replace you here in our hearts. :'(

I can't say I know how you feel, because i still have both my lolas around, but i understand how you feel, your lola was not only a part of your family, but a part of the whole Filipino family. Safe to say, that each and everyone of us, owe your lola big time.

Your lola is in a safe place now, far from the harsh and judgmental critics of insatiable people. And she has your lolo with her now too, who knows how long she has waited to be reunited with him, and now that they are both together, who knows what wonderful things they would be able to bring heaven, afterall, they did a pretty good job changing the lives of the Filipino people.

God Bless you and your family.
Your lola's love and legacy to all Filipinos will never be forgotten.
I know that she and your lolo, are watching over you guys right this minute, and both of them are really proud of you guys.

shatteredboy said...

Hi, Jiggy.

I was one of the media people who interviewed you at the cathedral. I just learned magkasing-edad pala tayo at comics fan ka rin.Para sa akin, ang lola mo tulad ni Phoenix, a symbol of hope. :)

I pray maging madali ang pagtanggap ninyo sa nangyari. Soon, sana makapanood ka na rin ng basketball, tuloy ang buhay...

I lost my Grandma, last december 11, 2008. It was sad because I have not seen her for 5 years. I gave birth and she also didnt have a chane to see my daughter. She was staying kasi with my uncle who violated me as child thus our ties were cut.I saw her when she was already in the morgue I was heartbroken. Goodthing sa inyo ur family was close you guys have a good support system.
Kaya mo yan Jiggy. Im 100% sure President Cory is happy holding the hand of your Lolo while walking in God's Kingdom.

Jennie said...

My condolences. Losing a person you love is never easy, but I hope you find comfort in the thought that your beloved Lola is in the arms of our Lord now, with your Lolo, and is not in pain anymore.

God bless you and your family. Thank you for sharing your Lola with the Nation.

Hi Jiggy, our sympathy to you & family, she will forever be missed Paalam po tita Cory.

Jacqueline said...

Hi, Jiggy. Stumbled upon your blog in twitter. I hope your family's coping well. I am continuously praying for President Cory's eternal repose and for your family's strength. You are truly blessed to have Pres Cory & Sen Ninoy as your grandparents.. am sure you made them proud :) ~Jackie Uy

boie17 said...

jiggy - please tell your Tita Kris to come up with an album with songs sang during the necrological services and funeral mass - including Lea Salonga's Bayan Ko, Jed Mandela's Impossible Dream, Eric Santos' Our Father, Sarah Geronimo's Magkaisa, Zsazsa's Hindi Kita Malilimutan, etc. We are praying for your Lola and for the Aquino family. She will be forever be our inspiration to always do good for our compatriots. I remember Cardinal Rosales' homily when he launched Pondong Pinoy, "Sino ang mag-aalaga sa Filipino, walang iba kung hindi ang kapwa niya Filipno" Your Lola and Lolo embodied this - truly, Filipinos are worth dying and living for. Thank you for being so true with your emotions, feelings and love for your Lola. We also cried with you since it was announced that she was sick until her funeral. We love her too!

James MD said...

I just want to extend my condolence to you and your family as well as to thank you for sharing your lolo and lola to all the Filipino people. So much has been said on the heroism and the courage your family, especially your grandparents, has shown throughout the decades. Truly, the Aquinos served as one of the chisel which moulded our country.

I know how hard things are for you, not to mention the pressure as the eldest apo (I am also one). But from what I've seen in the different forms of media, I know you made your grandparents very proud of you.

Jiggy, continue to be a pillar of strength for your family. Things will not be easy but remain steadfast. Better days are not that far. Now your lolo and lola are watching not only on your family but the entire nation as well.

I know your tita Viel said that your lola becoming a saint may be too much. But you know I already started praying to her for our country, the land she loved dearly.

I just want to let you know you've made us all proud. Needless to say, "apo ka nga talaga ni Ninoy at Cory".

All the best.

jiggy, i hope you don't mind, i posted your pic on my FB status. ;)

marissa said...

chun said...

We are all hurting for the loss of your Lola. Your Lola's courage is infectious. Thank you for sharing your Lolo and Lola to us.

calai said...

condolence...

the whole nation is mourning, myself included...but of course, it is more painful for those closest to her like you...

my grandparents died years ago, but when this incident happened, it brought back memories to me and the pain of losing my own loved ones started to show up again...but i just keep in my mind and my heart that they're in a much better place now and that life goes on, not taking them away from my memory of course...

i'm sure your lola is in a happier place now -- a place without pain and sickness -- w/ your lolo...so cheer up...

thanks for sharing your thoughts and emotions to us readers of your blog...it takes enough courage to do that in a time of mourning and missing...

God bless to you and your family...

I was very very young when both of my grandparents died so i havent reflected like what you do now, but , i dont know, i just felt really really sad about loosing someone you really love.. its really hard to accept the fact that the one you grew up with for the longest time you have in your life and the one you almost shared everything to.. will be gone so soon
..i was crying kc i can relate to what you are saying so kua, just wanna say na, BE STRONG!!, besides your lola is now with our heavenly father and happy together again with your lolo.
..it will definitely take you time to move on but i know you can kua!! coz your jiggy cruz? you are jiggy cruz!! cheer up kua, life goes on, endings are also beginnings.
..kua, if you have time, try reading TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE or THE FIVE PEOPLE YOU MEET IN HEAVEN by MITCH ALBOM.. i believe you can relate with that.
..hm, a very long comment again kua, thanks for reading it
i'l be praying for you and your whole family to recover on what had happened
