I met Kuya Leo on my first day at Rush University Medical Center. He was the friendliest and sweetest man. We connected due to our shared Filipino culture. After that day, we parted ways to our respective departments. However, once in awhile, we would see each other in the hallways and he would always say hi. We would have those awkward side hugs. Even when I think about that, I smile. I didn’t know you left us so soon, Kuya. I’ve missed seeing you in the hallways. I’ll miss you even more now. Rest In Peace, Kuya.

Leo was full of spirt and life, although he was not part of this world long enough for those that knew and loved him, Leo lived more than many who are with us twice as long. I was fortunate to get to know Leo and James and feel blessed that they came into my life. Leo made me cry from laughter on multiple occasions and sincerely was a joy to be around. Gone too soon, way too soon, I will definitely miss him.

Leo you are a special soul. You always treated your patients with such great dignity and compassion. You inspired me to be a better nurse. I learned so much from you, you were always willing to teach. You were truly passionate about your work. I don’t think you know the impression you made on people. I will miss your smile. You will be greatly missed. Rest In Peace my friend.

Kuya Leo, I already miss you. Your laughter, your neverending jokes. You never fail to make me laugh so hard even when we just meet each other in passing at the hallways or with your random picc line insertion at the ER. I am forever blessed and thankful that you became a part of my life. Nakalulungkot talaga na wala ka na. Di na kita mayayaya to go out for dinner. You will always be in my heart! I hope you are resting peacefully!

You will be sorely missed Leo. My heart is still aching and I am still trying to wrap my head around the fact that you are really gone. But not in my heart. You will always have a place in my heart my friend. Soar high now with the angels. No more pain and struggle. Only happiness with the Lord. I love you my friend. Until we meet again....

REMEMBER ME
Don’t remember me with sadness,
Don’t remember me with tears,
Remember all the laughter,
We’ve shared throughout the years.
Now I am contented
That my life it was worthwhile,
Knowing that I passed along the way
I made somebody smile.
When you are walking down the street
And you’ve got me on your mind,
I’m walking in your footsteps
Only half a step behind.
So please don’t be unhappy
Just because I’m out of sight,
Remember that I’m with you
Each morning, noon, and night.
Leo certainly you and your smile will be missed. RIP
