A round of golf in Bermuda. The wind was howling and it was a bit chilly but we still had fun. Those were the good old days.

Farewell to my friend, brother and kumpadre. I will not forget those times we enjoyed together; on the cruise, on the golf course and on the poker table. I will miss you much. Rest In Peace. When you call for tee time up there make sure you ask for the senior rate. Hit it from the super senior tee box. Hit it long and straight and keep it in the short grass.

A gentle and caring person, Ace had the gift of making everyone he encountered feel like they have been lifetime friends all along. That is certainly how I remember our first meeting. I am glad our paths crossed. Not only did he enrich my life, but he also positively impacted the whole Filipino-American community in the Low Country.
Hit them straight and long in the links up there. We call a golfer who hit a hole-in-one Ace. And since you have the nickname for it, you should be getting a lot of them. Until our next tee time, farewell my gentle friend!
