Don’t be dismayed at goodbyes. A farewell is necessary before you can meet again. And meeting again, after moments or lifetime, is certain for those who are friends. ~Richard Bach
And yet again, we say goodbye to another classmate of ours, Ricardo V. Manuel, who has joined his creator in heaven. Ric’s death was confirmed by his son, Exequiel, who told us his father passed away last January because of a lingering illness.
The last time we saw Ric was in 1988, when we celebrated our section’s 10th anniversary in Matabungkay, Batangas. He then moved to Puerto Princesa, Palawan, with his family.
Our deepest condolences to the whole family. 😦
