Ok, can we talk about the empanadas of our childhood? Not only did he not like the raisins in them, he'd pick them out and flick them at me on the way to school. When I finally told on him and he got lectured by Lola Nena, he then proceeded to throw snowballs at me all the way to school. Even recruited Rod Dela Cruz, my other walk to school brother, to do the same. LOL Who knew he'd grow up to be such a sweet guy? Ran into him buying flowers one time. I got to talk to him twice this past summer... He was guarding and I was doing choir stuff. We laughed about things of the past and got caught up with lots of newer stories. Both times it was about an hour and ended with a bye hug. So glad I had that chance. So glad he was part of my childhood.

He was the go-to person for advice, horror stories and took us under his wing when we were younger. I enjoyed all the spooky stories he told and all the horror movie recommendations. I had so many questions about his experiences that I never got the chance to ask. Thanks for being a good Kuya and a good friend, Kuya Jr!
Rest In Peace!

To Will's family and friends - I'm so sorry for your loss, my most sincere condolences.

Will, I can't believe I'm writing this. Over the last decade we've had our fair share of laughs and venting sessions here at work...however no tears until now. Rest in Peace my friend, we will reconnect on the other side.

Very saddened by this news bro.

Thank you so much for your guidance and support over this last year. It has meant so much to me. One day I’m hoping I can make an impact on someone as you did for me.

You will be missed.

Mabelle and Family, I am still in shock of Will's passing. He was a kind and caring man who will be deeply missed by all of us at Price. I spent many years working along side him and he was a great mentor, friend, and teacher to me as well as countless others. Rest Easy Will.

No words bro! I will always cherish and will never ever forget all those times we hung out. Those sleep over until Kuya Neil tells us to go to sleep. Church guarding and even Roller Blading at the function hall (Basement). Those times when we had double dates. So many memories that I will always remember!
This is not goodbye but till we see each other again.
Rest now bro! Your race is done!
Will miss and love you forever!

To Mabelle - Cindy and I will always be here for you!

To the Francisco Family and Ate Mabelle,

I am sure that there are no words that I can think of to ease the pain of Juniors passing but I would like to share some fond memories that I have with Junior.

Junior was the kind of person who kept it real. I remember as I was growing up he would make fun of me because I took myself too seriously most times and I always acted like the world was on my shoulders. Although my reaction most of the time was to get offended as he jokingly called me 'drama queen' he always had me laughing at by the end of it all. The thing I appreciated most was when things got really confusing growing up he would provide me with what he would do, especially when fighting with my best friend at the time. He was also very close to her. He was our kuya. I'm sorry I never got to tell him that we made up after 5 years of fighting, just like he totally predicted we would.

I also remember one summer where we both got dumped by our significant others and we would talk about how it sucks etc and then he told me he went on a trip and he met Ate Mabelle. When he got back he told me het met someone and that he's never met anyone like her. He looked like the heart eye emoji and of course I made fun of him for it.

Finally I'm sure you guys already know that there was a special place in his heart reserved for his nieces and nephews, I don't think there was ever a conversation we had where he didn't have a funny story about matt or claud or aby and caleb etc. I'm so sorry for your loss.

I will continue to pray for you guys.

God Bless.

Words can not express the pain and sadness we feel for you Mabelle and the whole Francisco family. I can not believe Junior is gone way to young but he will never be forgotten. I know he loved and treated you all with so much respect, he truly was a gentle, fun loving man. May you rest in eternal peace. Love, Dennis & Debbie Holowka

Junior - Where do I begin...Thank you for giving me a chance to be your friend. I looked up to you because you were actually a bit taller than me. I looked up to you because you set a good example for me and everyone that loves you. I miss our hang outs, playing basketball, sleepovers, watching animation movies and guarding the Chapel. Thank you for those memories and they'll never be forgotten. Rest in Peace Brother!
