Kuya Manny, or as we fondly called him as our Kuya Romy, was my brother-in-law but he was the best brother one can ever have. He was unselfish in every way, readily gave his time, and was always on the go even if he just got home from work. He will always be missed and remembered...May Our Good Lord Bless His Soul.

Kuya Romy is my brother away from home when I first came here in the US. Him and Ate Emma were my closest family. Had accommodated me for my great American journey. Ate Emma, please take care. I know he will be missed very much by a lot of people. He is very much in abetter place. We love you, and will continue to keep you in our prayers.

In my childhood, I remember Kuya Romy as one sweet cousin. He's the person anyone would be fond of because he's kind and affectionate. I'm sure he's now with our Good Lord up there. My condolences and prayers to Ate Lerma and children in this difficult time. May you find peace and comfort in the grace of God .... Loida Africa Lupac - Sagaran & Family (Doha, Qatar)

Mr. Africa was a more than great person all around. He paved the way for his beautiful family and his memory will live on forever. There wasn't a day I was around him where he didn't make me smile. That smile was contagious. =) I love that man.
