I am Ana Torres, coworker of Connie when I was still working at WIC. Joey has always been my walking question and answer encyclopedia, never a question ever unanswered! He has helped me in so many ways, when I got my condo, he shed light on real estate issues, prompting me what to do or say, taught me assertiveness, making me say “ my lawyer told me so” to the bank people! Ask anything under the sun, answers coming right up, so brilliantly! Thank you, Joey, you always made my day when doubts hover around my mind. Thank you for your patience and time and most of all the friendship....you shared with us, your WIC extended family! My family, John Paul (Jayjay) and wife Ariane, (Anne), Lorenzo( the baby), John Allan (Junjun) and wife Armie, and myself have looked up to you as our mentor and a dear part of our family! You and Connie are a blessing to us! Farewell, Joey, for now and Rest In Peace! To my best friend, Inday Con, Ari Lang ko di, I’m a phone call away, if you need company, I’m all yours! Godbless!

Among us siblings we jokingly call Kuya Joe as “Supremo”. Aside from being the eldest of eight, we call him “El Supremo” because he’s very smart, pragmatic, and fair. We look up to him and almost always consult him if we have questions and need to make big decisions. And he always gave sound advice.

My sister-in-law, Ate Sol, tells me to think that he’s just here in San Diego and I’m in PA, so it wouldn’t hurt so much. I think I could do that. But we often call and text each other. That, I’ll surely miss. I’ll just text him through prayers.

My husband tells me that I have to let Kuya Joe go. I don’t think I could do that. I won’t let him go. He’ll always stay in my heart.

I wrote him a poem (in Tagalog).


Ang Pagyao ng Supremo

Bakit Supremo? Bakit kamo?
Kasi sya ang Superman na Kuya ko
Magaling sa math, talagang matalino
Kapag may problema ako, lagi syang may payo.

Masungit minsan pero alam ko mahal nya ako
Tinatago lang siguro ang lambing sa kanyang mga buto
Mahilig kumanta, kadalasan nasa tono,
Minsan sintunado...parang ako.

Ang aking Kuya Joe, Kuya naming pito.
Salamat sa mga aral, sa mga turo
Salamat sa lahat ng tulong, Kuya ko.
Nadudurog ang aking puso sa iyong pagyao.

Mahal ka naming lahat na naririto.
Lahat kami saludo sa iyo.
Paalam Kuya Joe.
Paalam Supremo.

Uncle Joey was that one cool uncle that all Filipino kids have growing up that never yelled, but he made you really think about how you messed up.

Uncle was always tinkering with some sort of electronic device for as long as I knew him and he always pressed me to figure stuff out. Though there were a few times that I had to go to his house with my computer in tow to seek advice.

Oh and he’d always speak to me in Tagalog despite my Tagalog abilities being severely lacking. Once it was computer stuff then it was English. Hah.

His kids, April and Aaron are my bestest friends and I’m going to treasure this friendship always.

Take care uncle. I’ll make sure Aaron finishes his food. Though April and I are due for all sorts of trouble I’ll at least make sure she’s okay.

We’ll miss you.

Joey was a shipmate and a close friend of mine. We were friends of more than 30 years and our kids grew up knowing us as their uncles and aunties. Truly warm friendly and understanding person. Anytime you ask for his opinion and advice , he was there for you no questions asked. Always got those sound advice and of course those what ifs. A business minded all the way.

Will miss your visit to our house when you are getting bored or just driving by. Well you went away before us, so, GODSPEED pare and i bid you FAIRWINDS and FOLLOWING SEAS. Till we meet again, good bye.
