To my dearest uncle,

To be honest, i don't know where to start or what to say, i don't know how to express this emotional feeling i have because until now i still can't imagine that you're gone. But i will just leave it with a poem.

At one point, words are enough to make me believe that there is such thing as "Neverland"
To believe that all of life can be compared as a "Fairytale"
That a tragic death can be kissed back to life
But then again, It is not real, It's fiction.

I see my self running away, far away
Down the river, towards the sun
Up a mountain, through the stars
But when i looked down on my hands
I see a space in the shape of my palm
Longing for your presence in this exaggerated journey of mine.

In the wake of goodbye
There is nothing more i can feel but
but the outward pain of missing what i had.

Your arms brought me
Safety and distraught
Mine brought you
Rest and Peace
No matter how painful i had
Just realized that we still wasn't the home you needed

So i must shed this final tear
And this last goodbye
With your name sign all over it.

PS: You will be miss uncle, and i will always and will be remembering you, I love you.

Dearest Tessa, Tine, Alma and to your beautiful Children,
It is so very sad to lose someone at such a young age. Especially a young man that has touched so many peoples lives and hearts - a bright light in everyone's soul. As we talked about yesterday, God has special plans for him and needed him for the next part of his journey. He is still with us all, watching over those that he loves.
Our deepest condolences to you and your family. We are blessed to be able to call you family. You all hold a very special place in our hearts and are so very special to Kaleigh, Morgan and I.
With all of our love, support and strength -
Penny, Kaleigh and Morgan

To the family: Death is not the end of our journey, death here on earth is just the beginning of our new life specially with the Lord. And I'm sure he is with the Lord right now.
Remember life here on earth has to end, but LOVE does not.

To my special son
Marvin Canada Mortel

To lose someone so special is really hard to bear
It hardly seems believable that you’re no longer there
You left us far too early before your time, it seems and now you’ll never have the chance
to fulfill all those dreams
However hard it is though ,we’ll take comfort in the thought of all memories we have
and happiness you brought
You always lived life to the full but ours won’t be the same until the day when we can see
your smiling face again.
It seems so hard to comprehend that you’re no longer here but all the happy memories will keep you near.
Farewell to you my dear son ’Till we meet again
Missing you deeply ❤️❤️❤️

Goodbye too soon Avin! Over 13 years I have been part of Ninang Tessa’s family and I consider Avin a younger brother. We may not talk too often but one that I admire him the most was his welcoming gesture and love for my daughter Chelsea. Whenever we arrive at their place, he would always welcome Chelsea inside, ask her what she likes to eat and give her food. My daughter and I will sure miss those moments. Again I thank you and your family Avin for making me part of your wonderful life in Canada. You may be gone soon but your memories will always linger. Goodbye Avin, rest well in God’s loving mercy in heaven. ❤️Ate Tine

Kuya Marvin, has been a big brother to me ever since. He was my sister's first and last boyfriend and I can say, her greatest love. I've witnessed all their ups and downs. From being teenage lovers until matured couple. They were really both madly inlove with each other! In our family, we used to call them the "Juday-Wowee tandem". I am pretty sure, filipino people can relate to this. 😊

During our younger years, Kuya has taught me alot of things. Like literally, alot! From my homeworks and projects, to solving multiplication problems using my two hands, playing different games in playstation (by the way, our favorite game is the horseback racing game) and playing billiards. He also let me and my sister watched in a real horseback racing arena and, it was totally awesome! There was also a time that we went to our province. While the three of us were eating, he saw a big bowl of jackfruit on the kitchen counter, went rush into eat, got a handful amount of it and put everything into his mouth while he keeps on repeating, this is my favorite! We laughed so hard because right after he ate almost everything, our grandma went back to get the bowl of jackfruit, but wondered why it is almost empty. Those were our happy moments together here in PH. I can also say that, I am their certified, third wheel.

I can consider that, kuya, has been part of my quarter life. His words of wisdom and his intelligence has helped me mold myself. What I am now, is because kuya has touched my life. Inspired me to become a better person everyday. I wasn't able to say these words to him, but I really know for a fact that he really does have a space in my heart.

To my sister and to my almost own children, you know I and daddy Jasper got your back. We may not there physically, but, rest assured that we will be here to support you. We love you from day one until the end.
