At 8:52 today, after his 4 days fight for his life under a coma, I lost a dear friend.
He was my age, 25, Graduated with a bachelors and masters degree in Psychology,
was taking up Law while heading Saint Louis University’s fiercest debate team.
We worked together for Saint Louis university’s student publication- White&Blue. Where He and I worked our way from staff writer and cartoonist to Editor-in-chief and Editorial Cartoonist, respectively. He could stab you with sharp words as a debater and hypnotize you with the finesse of a poet. A true artist. A full-blooded Louisian.
On a personal note, you walked me through my first heartbreak. Some of my closest friends who told me to “take it like a man!” while sitting beside me with cold beer and warm brotherhood.
I’m going to miss you, Bro.
Goodbye, for now.
Edward Gorey’s classic children’s book, The Gashlycrumb Tinies
morbidly amusing. read this at Dr. Dela Fuente’s home.

“Show me how to love like You.”, a young man prays. “Are you sure?”, Christ whispers. “With all my heart, Lord. Well..with all that’s left of it.”, he replies. “My love never seems to be enough for anyone…”, the young man adds. “I feel you.” his Maker replies. “You do?” the man whispers. “More than you can imagine.” the Son replies with a soft smile.
“I have to tell you, there won’t be anything left of that heart of yours when I show you how. The only way I can show you how is when you surrender to me all of your heart and receive mine in its place.” He said with a soft voice. “but if I give you all of my heart, won’t it kill me?” the young man, replied with fear in his voice.
“Yes, It will.” He replied.
“won’t it kill You,too.” the young man asked.
“It already did…”
“but, now, you have nothing to fear because when I did, I conquered death and the Spirit that brought me back to Life will bring you back too. you have to believe, surrender, and let my heart take over.”
“Okay… I surrender.”
the young man lowers his head, folds his fingers together, closes his eyes and let his heart beat its last.
