Tribute :(A Wife's Eulogy To Her Great Love) My Bambam--- A Great Man. Let me start by saying this quotation One cannot choose how one's life begins. But one can choose to face the end with courage and dignity. And thats what My husband did. I never thought- I'd be so blessed to be married to one. He is my love- my one and only love- the love of my life... He is full of life that everyone that surrounds him Feels this positive energy he brings. A man with a big heart who helps others in need with out hesitation. A funny man who makes me and others laugh every single day. He is the father of my children- my best friend- my protector- my shoulder to cry on- my partner in crime- our provider and Pau-Pau- JuJu and I MISS HIM SO MUCH! I met Eugene on January of 2003 in the Philippines. I remember how handsome he was and then he asked me to set him up on a date with one of my friends. At the back of my mind- i wish for him to ask me out. Little did I know--- It was really me he wanted to date all along. After two years- we got married and got pregnant for the first time... We were so happy but just on the first trimester we lost our 1st baby and my husband was the only one who was able to console me... He always make everything seem better. I knew from the start he was my God sent... I miss the way he calls me Bambam. I miss our movie dates- our adventures- our family trips- taking pictures of him and our boys- I miss the way he say how beautiful I am even though I haven't taken a bath for days. I miss driving him to SFU so he could ride his bike and how really happy I made him every time I drove him up there. He always play with the kids even though he is so tired from work. He never fail to kiss us good morning and goodnight. And say- I love you each day-- with all smile on his face. Our children are so lucky to have a father like him. He always put our needs first than anything else. I am very thankful- I have Paulo and Julian. He has left me very special gifts and I will cherish them forever and take the best care of them. I don't want to disappoint him. Our children gives me so much joy at this time that I am grateful to the Lord that I am not alone in this journey. I am sorry too- he has left me behind early but it is the will of the Lord and I have learned to accept it. He has touched so many peoples lives with his battle with cancer... He fought hard- stayed strong and positive despite all the hardships of several Surgery- Chemo-therapies- radiation and all other side of effects of his medicines... he truly is an inspiration... He is love by all--- that I am so thankful- I am surrounded by all of them at this trying time. On his last few weeks on earth- we spent it at Surrey Memorial Hospital and at the Hospice at Laurel Place. He was visited by dear family and friends and he was so happy to see everyone and was so overwhelmed by it. He made sure he showed how much he love his Mommy Praxy Bahia and Papa Pete- and Sister Maria- and nieces AJ- Tiny- and Grace. He said sorry for whatever he might have done. And- he always made sure he will give everyone a kiss before they leave and tell them how much he loves them. Not a day goes by that he didn't say I love you. Even on his last day on earth he said I love you. He even slept on our bed at the hospice three days before he died... He said- Even if God takes him when the time comes we just call out his name and he will be there. Paulo always ask about his dad... He still prays at night to make Papa feel better. While Julian thinks his dad is just sleeping... I- Thank him for sharing his wonderful family- relatives and friends with me... Thank you Mommy Praxy- Papa Pete- Teng- Roland- AJ- Tiny and Grace for treating me as your own when I have no other family in here. To Bambam's Singer Valve Family- thank you so much for treating us as your family too- To his Team BFF thank you for riding on his honor- I want you to know how proud he was when you formed the team. Thank you to all our relatives and friends who came all the way from all parts of U.S. And Canada. I am sure he is so happy to see all of you here. I thank my husband for all the laughter- the good times- for all the things he taught me- shared with me- and prepared everything that was needed to be done. I know- he is in heaven and it gives me comfort knowing he is in the hands of God and no longer in pain... I will make sure our children will never forget him. Pau-Pau- Ju-Ju and I will miss him forever. And We will always love him forever and ever. Until we meet again. To my Bambam- I love you sooo much. Please help us continue his legacy through Team BFF on raising funds for Cancer Research. So that- one day they may find a cure and no other family should ever go through this again...
