It's going to be almost 2yrs since you sadly departed us lolo. There's not a day that goes by we don't think of you. Easter just passed and it brought back so much memories from when you use to hide eggs for us to find. We didn't have much but it brang so much joy and excitement to us. Just the other day big boy saw a spider and shouted get it and pretend to eat it like Lolo used to do. You always protected us no matter what and I know that you will continue to guide and watch over us. We love and miss you very much!!
Love always,
Big boy, boobie and Jake

Happy 97th Birthday Dad!

I remember during your birthday parties – you didn't say much but on your face showed the joy and happiness deep inside of you. I remember your nice smiles when one by one arrived to great you a happy birthday - when you were surrounded with your grandchildren to help you blow the candle on your cake and the youngest one sat on your lap during picture taking. The best part when you joined your grandkids on the pinata and mama was there waiting for the candies to fall.

Our hearts and minds are full of great memories of you. That is why we missed you dearly, Tatang.

Happy Birthday and Rest In Peace.

Loving you forever,
Your daughter Imee

My dearest Tatang,

It's been a year and two months since you left us. I still missed you much, it feels like you were just gone on a long vacation and waiting for your return. But deep in my heart I know you are now very happy in heaven with God.

Please continue to look over each and every one of us that we will always be caring and loving to one another.

Belated Happy Father's Day! We love you and missed you so dearly.

loving you always,
Your daughter

Lolo I will always remember you coming upstairs to ask me and big boy if we wanted to play outside in the summer and you would also call upstairs when my mom and papa weren't home
and ask me if I ate yet and you would always tell me and big boy to eat food that you have on the table.I will never forget about you Lolo. I'll miss you Lolo.

Lolo ,
the day of your birthday in 2012 you said that that would be your last .. I wish that hadn't came true . You played such a vital & irreplaceable role in this family . You were practically the base . Without you or mama then none of us would be where we currently are . I couldn't have ever asked for any other great grandpa . You were an incredibly passionate , caring , high spirited & loving dad , grandfather , great grandfather , & great great grandfather from what i've heard from the rest of the family . I cannot thank you enough for even giving me life itself . You were a real trooper . Holdin' it up at 95 , still incredibly handsome & healthy . W/o you or mama i wouldnt be the person i am today . You guys are the ones that taught us to show respect . Though you are gone , i am at ease to know that you had spent your last few years in peace & happiness . I definitely know that you had an amazing time in the long run & you surely resigned from it peacefully too . Part of me is broken & the other part understands your leaving . It was your time to go w/ God & the Angels in Paradise . I don't have tons of memories w/ you but i'm so appreciative that i even had some . I remember those times when you & mama would sometimes babysit me .. I remember when i would go to lola Elvie's i would see you & mama sitting in the backyard while the sun was still shining . Or that time when Auntie Alyssa , manang , & myself sang for you on the stage . I will do it again for one more time just for you Lolo . Your departure will remain as an emotional scar on this family . Nor will anything be the same . But i wish you the very best in your new life . Be our watchful angel & say Hi to Lolo Poldo & Lola Yuning . Rest in paradise . May you always be in our hearts , Forever & Always , Federico Antolin Apolonio ... <3 i love you Lo .
