I was supposed to share something to you today other than this.
But I absolutely can't.
Our hearts are crying once again with the loss of a very close friend in the Philippines.
|ALLAN PAUL VICENTE QUINTERO|
April 24, 1975 - February 3, 2015
He was a classmate since college, my husband's during med school and a very close friend.
In our country, we call this a "Kabarkada" or buddy.
We've shared so many things together and among the male friends I have, I consider him one of my closest.
We were so shocked when we found out two days ago. He was so young (39) to have a heart attack?!
I cried and cried and truly regret the missed opportunity of seeing him last December when he came to the U.S. He didn't want to imply on us about meeting up since he knew we just had a baby and was busy, I only found out when he emailed me last January 12 and I told him, he should've let us known since we would've surely found the time to see him... and now, he's gone.
Mourning far away is so hard too.
The only connection I have right now are with our common friends in Facebook.
All we could do is pray.
Pray for him and his daughter and wife he left behind.
He will surely be missed by his patients as well.
But for us, we will miss the laughter and togetherness we could've still had with him.
May you rest in peace dear friend... We love you.
