We will offer our prayers for Boy's journey home to our Good Lord and to his family that they may find peace and happiness despite this loss. We lost a friend down here but we sure gained an angel up there. Till we meet again....

I remember Boy as being someone I was able to laugh and joke with a lot from our Ateneo Grade School days, especially as he was also my bus mate when he used to live on Sta. Cecilia St., not to far of from the New Manila area where I stayed. I am saddened by his passing, and especially as I don't think I ever saw him again after he left for the U.S. My deepest sympathies to you and your family on his passing. I pray that the presence of loved ones and friends, together with the kind words spoken, help to provide you with strength and encouragement in the days to come. God bless you and continue to be with you at this time.

My family offers prayers for the eternal repose of Boy Siongco's soul. We also condole with his family for the untimely loss.

In my one year sharing the same classroom at the Ateneo High School, I remember Boy as a very jolly person, always helpful to his classmates.
