Lakay, ania metten iti gasat na ni kailian kon nga Carmen. She'd still grieving over the late Pare Guilling's passing and now these. Kitaem met latta ania, she's a nurse and a scion of upper middle-class family and this befell her kids. I can empathize exactly what is going through with her, maybe three times over even as she also lost her husband not too long ago.
You know, we hear sad news like this that befalls a co-alumnus and our natural reaction is that we also feel we have lost a member of our family. You know, I believe the Alumni Association has done something very special to us. Through our frequent inter-actions and communications, a special bond has been developed from the majority, if not from all of us.
I wrote an article when I was still stationed in Arkansas that touched on the Association and the rekindling of friendship. It was published on our Newsletter. I saved it on a diskette but I left it tucked away in a safe place in Temecula before I left for Korea. If only Raffy can resuscitate access to it and bring it back to life. It's worth reading again because it truly depicts what alumni of DWCU had metamorphosed into since its inception.
Okay lakay, later.
