Hi, Lydia and family
I'm so saddened by the loss of Eddie, he was such a good man!
His love for his family, especially to his wife Lydia ; his children, Jeannie and JR; his son-in-law, Richie; and his three adorable grandchildren....Brandon, Connor and Delaney is beyond measure, this was his life! Eddie had completed his earthly mission, so God called him HOME. Eddie's memories will be carried in your hearts and treasured forever.
When Eddie died, he did not carry with him any of his material possessions. He proudly brought with him and offered to God, everything he had GIVEN AWAY. Eddie presented to God every little bit of kindness he had done to his family and to everyone of us. And that matters the most in the eyes of God!
Eddie is now enjoying his blissful rewards in heaven. May God bless you all!
Until we all meet again !

Tiyoy Adog, thank you for everything. You were one of the best uncle I ever had, you were too kind and smart Tiyoy. A lot of memories to be treasured Tiyoy from the times you stayed in our house when Nanay Dela was still alive. You were always requesting to my husband to bake a pizza or to cook some seafoods for you, like sweet and sour, calamares, grilled (sinugba) and sinigang na isda. I remember also the times Tiyoy whenever I need a kahoy for our fuel (gatong) in order to bake our bread, you didn't hesitate to give me. Thank you² so much Tiyoy. Even the last time we had a video call on you, Tiyay Lydia was joking you that "will you give Melanie ng kahoy? Makuha lang to siya?" and you kept Tiyoy saying a yes until the last time. Thank you gid Tiyoy. You knew naman na even you were alive, I was not after that material things you offered me but you and Tiyay Lydia were aware that I really care for you even in your last breathe. Tiyoy, you will be forever remembered. You were always that kind and smart Tiyoy Adog. Our prayers wish that your noble soul finds eternal peace. We will miss you, Tiyoy.

The image of my child self still plays visibly on my mind. I can still remember the times wherein you, Lolo stayed here in our house since you're house was under construction. Those was a short period of time but it will always be one of the best time in my life Lo. A lot of memories will be treasured forever Lolo, from the times that you're in my side when I tried to slice that ginger-like plant or we called "lampuyang" and cause me pain since not that ginger-like plant the one I sliced, but my fingers. What you did Lo in order to make me feel happy was you bought and give me a Mountain Dew while you were singing since that was your favorite thing to do. I remembered also the times Lo when I was always with you during your videoke since you let me find that song number for you.
But last year, the last time that you had vacation here in Pinas, you were a great motivator. You kept on saying nga "Neng, always remember education is really important. Tuon gid mayo ha as long as eager ka maglearn, don't stop educating yourself since an educated person can influence others." This was only a short statement Lo but it had a great impact on me as a student.
Lolo, thank you so much for everything. You will always be my Lolo Adog. May your soul peacefully rest in the Kingdom of God Lolo. Please guide us always, Lolo.

Thank you for everything that you did for me, my family, and to all my siblings. I will always remember the times when we spend the nights and weekends singing on the karaoke. You were a great singer and you got me into singing old songs and ballads from your times. You were a caring brother and uncle to all your siblings and nieces/nephew and you were there to talk to them regardless of how long the conversation. I will miss a lot of memories and tunes that we sung along. You will always be missed. Please guide and watch over us.
On behalf of our family and from your brother Miguel. We love you and we will miss you!!!!

You've lived an extraordinary life in an ordinary world on this earth. You accomplished so much in such a short amount of time with little help. You taught me to wonder, to explore, to question, to examine, to dig deep, and to take apart things until I found my answer. You were the greatest scientist/engineer I knew and the best mentor to everyone you met. We will miss your history lessons, building things with you around the house, and taking our yearly fishing trips in our canoe. I'm so glad we took our last flight together last year back home. We managed to survive and avoid a volcano, an earthquake, and the beginnings of the pandemic all in one trip and I will never forget it. I know we'll meet again someday, but it will be hard to not have you around for your help, ideas, and to see your smile. I will miss you forever. I'll see you on the other side of the stars.
Love Always Your Son,
