Too young, too soon. We will all die, they say. Una una lang yan, they say. And the time for him has come.
First time I heard, I could hardly believe. A man so humble, so talented, so good looking, so sweet and so kind; a man of faith; a man of passion; a man of honor. Such great man will always be the one to be taken from Earth, to join the angels and claim place in heaven.
Renn – although he was not really a superduper close friend of mine, he was never ever a stranger to anyone. His was the very first hug from a man that I got during my teenage years. It was before I left high school on graduation day. Another thing, he never failed to greet me happy birthday every year with a wish of God’s blessings. To think that we were never really that close, I’d like to say that those were the gestures of a kind man, a pure man.
Though he doesn’t look like the same gwapo and fresh man now lying in his casket, he will still be the Renn the part of his circle once knew. Though he left the world too early, many live to acknowledge his greatness. A good friend, a good son, a good being.
Watch over us and regards to the beloved Mrs. Brown. We’ll see you off as the sun sets. Make sure you’ll see the sun rise in your favorite place. And rest in paradise, brother.
