“Ate, si Uncle Jun patay na”
“Gail did you hear the news Uncle Jun left us na”
I didn’t know how to react. Just last week I saw and read some of his posts in facebook. Uncle Jun (Tarcs to his friends) has a gift in writing. In his blog you’d learn a lot from his entries.
My Papa stayed with Uncle Jun’s family and Papa became their Kuya. My first OJT was with him. I was with him during his stay at Makati Med for his first heart operation. We last saw each other when he went to Dubai for a business trip (sadly we didnt have any pictures taken) this is also the time that he told me of his plans to volunteer and made me promise not to spread this plan to the family. In one of his office he had a big poster of Judy Ann Santos which kept him amused. For the last month he posted old photos of the family remembering each event. I guess it was a sign of him saying goodbye and reminding us how important family is.
I know Uncle is happier now with his dad, lola Kaye, Auntie Grace, and Papa. I will forever miss you Uncle Jun.
