My deepest sympathies to the Aggacid Family during this sad time, from reading all your amazing memories of Romeo, he seems like a wonderful man, he will be truly missed. Its never easy losing a loved one, but an outlet that will always gives us comfort is prayer, it helps us build strength and hope of moving forward. In Revelation 21:3,4 also gives us hope of that wonderful future of seeing our loved ones again here on earth. What a wonderful day that will be!

Dear Romeo
I remember Rusty’s party when you welcomed Wayne and Me into your home and made us feel immediately like we were at home
Your smile and humor were infectious and thanks for teaching me how to play cards
I really didn’t get a chance to see you and Bella as much as I wish
You always think there’s going to be plenty of time
You were and are a genuinely nice guy. It may sound so little but it is rare to find in this world.
You will truly be missed by everyone who has ever met you
You were taken too soon. I guess God must really need you up there.
Sharon and Wayne Hauserman

Dear Uncle Romeo,
Thank you for everything .You had been very kind to us, especially my sons and my mother ,I remember when u drove me to get my SSS near to your house. After that we went to get lunch at Burger King .Every Friday when Tata was with us , I drove him to your house to get his balikbayan box packed or just to visit you . you were always there to see us and made sure we're ok to go back to Woodstock. I can share a lot of good memories of you uncle ,but what really touched me was last April 2018 (aunt Bella's bday) you came to where I parked and touched my shoulder and said " take care yourself ,get well and please get your surgery ASAP . Don't hesitate to call me if you need help." You are always willing to help and not only that , you're a very humble person . You're very generous to my boys and we thank you .You will be greatly missed uncle .When we visited you at the hospital, you still had to say "thank you "in writing because you're having hard time talking. May you rest in peace now uncle 🙏You will always be remembered by us .

Your niece,
Rowena

Tito Romy,

We may not have spent a lot of time to collect memories together but me and my whole family sure do remember feeling how hospitable and accommodating you are when we visited Chicago. Thank you for sharing your kindness and positive energy. You will always be remembered.

Love,

It was saddening hearing about the sudden passing of Tito Romy.

I didn't have the chance to spend a lot of time with Tito Romy but seeing the look on my tita Bella's face when she's with him, I know he's given the world to her.

With the ample time spending with him, I already knew he was a family man. His presence gave the sense of security his family needed.
He invested time with loved ones, not only to Tita and Kuya Russell, but also to whom he considered family, even non-blood related.

He brought us to his favourite restaurant, Texas du Brazil which is now one of my favourite steak houses
Just like me, he also loved coffee! - especially the fancy ones.

On our visit, he was accommodating and cheerful, hospitable and kind.
He knew how to handle things because he was a strong man, the loving one.

And as I write this memory of Tito Romy, I know his family is happy, not because he's gone, but because he is no longer suffering.

He is now free from the aches and pains of the human flesh. He is now above with the supreme being, looking down, watching over us.

Unfortunately I don't have a picture with tito Romy to share, but I do have his memory to remember.

And though he had passed, deep down in our hearts, we know he owns a spot.

Love,
EJ and Kaecy

Romeo,
Thank you for the Christmases, New Year celebrations and birthdays we’ve celebrated together.
My most memorable vacation I ever had was Nana’s 89th Birthday in the Philippines. We were all having a great time singing karaoke and Bella started singing “For the Good Times.” I suggested that you dance with nana and, like a trooper, you got up and started dancing with nana. I thank God that I was able to catch that unforgettable moment on video. I will cherish that moment always. You were a lot of fun.

You will always be in our hearts.
Your sister-in law,
Beth

To my dear brother Romeo,

Thank you for looking after us all these years. You were always there. I will never forget how you saved me, in the alley on Wilson, that one Monday afternoon. My car was parked in front of the garage, on Wilson, when suddenly two Chicago police detectives were asking me a lot of questions. I wasn’t doing anything wrong. I was confused and scared. They kept asking “what was I doing in the alley?” Suddenly, you opened the back gate door and asked what’s going on. The detectives stoped taking and left. It was perfect timing. You saved me from further investigations by the police. You were always looking after me.

Even while laying in the hospital bed you were always thinking about all of us - your loved ones especially Nana.
We will miss your smiles and laughter. We will miss your caring attitude. We will miss your company, but You will always be in our hearts.

Love,
Your brother, Mike
