I first met Marylou when she was working for Congressman Azcuna,, her maternal grandmother’s brother who represented Zamboanga del Norte at the Old Philippine Congress during the 70’s. We were room mates at St. Anne’s Girls Dorm in front of UST, in Espana. I was a college student along with the majority of our dorm mates. We were close to the Alipio sisters, Muntie and Lita from Basilan and Geraldine and Bituin from Zamboanga City. This is to say that we were together in many girlish capers that gave our matron enormous headaches because we were ungovernable and we always get our way.
Marylou has always been a family person and so we got to meet and became close to her mother and her sisters and were familiar with her father , her brothers, her uncles and aunties -most of her relatives. She was a very selfless and protective older sister , practically a mother to her younger siblings . To us her friends she was a generous and loyal friend and boy. did we have lots of laughs and fun those days- we were an adventurous bunch. Her sense of adventure and non judgmental good nature is legendary and we were her ready and loyal partners . The boys could never match or keep up with our savvy- we were light and just having fun.
Her fair, shapely legs were perfect for the mini skirts and hot pants - the fashion statements during those days that she carried with great aplomb . She was a real looker. At which point I called her Donald because she at times made funny poses and intentionally walked funny to get a laugh from us.
Of course I was Daisy Duck to her Donald - bosom buddies forever.
I miss her . We can talk and talk and laugh our heads off over human foibles, absurd and ironic situations in life - all par for the course.
We were young together and that is exactly where I would like to put her- among my most treasured memories of my own youth - where she is young forever.
Rest in peace, day Donald . Until we meet again.
