It's going to be almost 2yrs since you sadly departed us lolo. There's not a day that goes by we don't think of you. Easter just passed and it brought back so much memories from when you use to hide eggs for us to find. We didn't have much but it brang so much joy and excitement to us. Just the other day big boy saw a spider and shouted get it and pretend to eat it like Lolo used to do. You always protected us no matter what and I know that you will continue to guide and watch over us. We love and miss you very much!!
Big boy, boobie and Jake

Happy 97th Birthday Dad!
I remember during your birthday parties – you didn't say much but on your face showed the joy and happiness deep inside of you. I remember your nice smiles when one by one arrived to great you a happy birthday - when you were surrounded with your grandchildren to help you blow the candle on your cake and the youngest one sat on your lap during picture taking. The best part when you joined your grandkids on the pinata and mama was there waiting for the candies to fall.
Our hearts and minds are full of great memories of you. That is why we missed you dearly, Tatang.
Happy Birthday and Rest In Peace.
Loving you forever,
Your daughter Imee
My dearest Tatang,
It's been a year and two months since you left us. I still missed you much, it feels like you were just gone on a long vacation and waiting for your return. But deep in my heart I know you are now very happy in heaven with God.
Please continue to look over each and every one of us that we will always be caring and loving to one another.
Belated Happy Father's Day! We love you and missed you so dearly.
loving you always,
Lolo I will always remember you coming upstairs to ask me and big boy if we wanted to play outside in the summer and you would also call upstairs when my mom and papa weren't home
and ask me if I ate yet and you would always tell me and big boy to eat food that you have on the table.I will never forget about you Lolo. I'll miss you Lolo.

the day of your birthday in 2012 you said that that would be your last .. I wish that hadn't came true . You played such a vital & irreplaceable role in this family . You were practically the base . Without you or mama then none of us would be where we currently are . I couldn't have ever asked for any other great grandpa . You were an incredibly passionate , caring , high spirited & loving dad , grandfather , great grandfather , & great great grandfather from what i've heard from the rest of the family . I cannot thank you enough for even giving me life itself . You were a real trooper . Holdin' it up at 95 , still incredibly handsome & healthy . W/o you or mama i wouldnt be the person i am today . You guys are the ones that taught us to show respect . Though you are gone , i am at ease to know that you had spent your last few years in peace & happiness . I definitely know that you had an amazing time in the long run & you surely resigned from it peacefully too . Part of me is broken & the other part understands your leaving . It was your time to go w/ God & the Angels in Paradise . I don't have tons of memories w/ you but i'm so appreciative that i even had some . I remember those times when you & mama would sometimes babysit me .. I remember when i would go to lola Elvie's i would see you & mama sitting in the backyard while the sun was still shining . Or that time when Auntie Alyssa , manang , & myself sang for you on the stage . I will do it again for one more time just for you Lolo . Your departure will remain as an emotional scar on this family . Nor will anything be the same . But i wish you the very best in your new life . Be our watchful angel & say Hi to Lolo Poldo & Lola Yuning . Rest in paradise . May you always be in our hearts , Forever & Always , Federico Antolin Apolonio ... <3 i love you Lo .
Lilong Thank you for everything,you were always there when we needed help. You're the best Lilong in the world!! It was unfortunate that I did not see you before you go. Gay gay was so excited when she heard that we are coming to see you,and she felt sad when she heard the news that you passed away. We love you Lilong and you will always be in our heart.
My you rest in peace Lilong!
Lilong thank you so much for all the things you did to my life your help your support without you and lilang I won't reach this far.You will always be in my heart.
Everytime I visited you here you were always there cooking for our breakfast and you always said manganen I am so so blessed to have lilong like you who always there for all of us.
The last time I spoke to you before you passed away that I am coming to see you I know you are excited by hearing your voice, but I felt so sad when i heard that your gone, but I know lilong your with our Lord now.
Till we meet again lilong,we love you lilong and we will miss you.
We visit and view you today; we celebrate your life tomorrow. However, we will hold the memories of you dearly in our hearts forever.
I will never let Cierra, Mariah and Olivia forget how lucky they are to have had a great grandfather. You always had so much love to give. I will remember the weekend before you passed that I was able to hug and kiss you one last time and whispered I love you Lolo and most importantly seeing you smile and hearing you say I love you too. Lolo, I truly felt that you loved me as your own. I will miss you but will take comfort that your legacy will live on.
I Love You,
May you rest in peace. We love you and miss you. I thank you and Inang for rising and taking care of our kids when they were little. I can see they have the same love and compassion you have. I remembered we worked together at WAC and you helped me get another part time job at Togetcu. The owner said I work like a machine. You were so happy and proud of me. Even though we work so hard we still all got together for family outings during the weekend. You loved to go clamming and just spend to time with your grandkids. Thank you for everything. It is hard to lose a mother and now you Amang, but I know both of you are no longer suffering and in pain. You will remain in our hearts forever. We love you.

To Auntie Imelda and family. We would like to express our condolences on the loss of your Tatang.
Although we did not have the opportunity to know him, we were able to get a glimpse of what a fine father he was having raised such a kind, gentle and caring soul as yourself.
May The Lord give your family comfort and strength at this most difficult time and know that we are always here for you and share in your loss.
God bless you and your family,
~ Fred, Lynda, and Bong
Rest in peace Lolo. I Thank you and lola for everything. My dad used to tell us stories about how he love your family because he felt that he is really part of "your" family. Just like when I visit and I feel like I'm one of your lucky lucky grand children. Thank you Lolo and Lola. Lolo will surely be missed.
You may not seen us grown up nor We did not seen you much when we are growing up we know in our hearts that you love and care us. Now you left us, still we never have the chance to see, to hug,to kiss you again..but WE must move on and accept it because your already in the hands of our almighty GOD.

Lolo, you have raised a wonderful family that is full of love for one another. The love you and Lola had for one another is a love that all your children, grandchildren and great grandchildren will hope to have one day. Thank you for showing your everlasting love and always making me feel like one of your own. You will always be in our heart Lolo I love and miss you.

Condolences. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
Lolo we love you and never will a day go by when we don't miss you, always & forever you will live in our hearts
Lolo, I thank you for demonstrating and teaching me how to live a life of love, honor and kindness.
I will live a life of fullness and meaning because you lived yours as an offering and gateway so that we may have endless opportunities and success on our journey. Your ceiling has become my floor. I'll see you again in eternity. I love you.
Losing you is one of the most difficult things we have gone through. We love you so much that it's hard to accept the fact that you no longer here with us. Time will tell when but it will take time to heal our broken hearts.
I am so grateful that I was there besides you and was able spent time with you that day – ate lunch together; saw your last smile and heard your last words.
The day you left us, I cried and cried until no more tears left to shed. I called your name to come back but you never came back. I held your hand tight and not letting you go. But I know you were there looking down and telling us not to worry, that everything is okay, that it's time for you to go to heaven with GOD.
When I go to your place,I like going into your room because I still feel your presence there. I imagine that you are sitting on your chair watching your favorite shows. Then I start talking to you - put on your favorite jacket and wrap my hand around me like I'm hugging you tight close to my heart over and over again. I can't help my self burst into tears.
Thank you for everthing you did for us. You are such a kind, loving and caring father and you will greatly miss forever. Your memories will remain and stays in our hearts forever ever.
Hope someday we'll be blessed with our own grandchildren - we'll make sure to tell them all the fond memories and everything about you.
We love you Tatang. We will see you again someday.
Rest In Peace
I'd like to thank you Uncle and your beautiful wife (of course Auntie) and your family for taking us in as one of your own kids. I am so grateful especially when i first moved here to the States. You guided me and took care of me until I was ready to provide for my own family. Thank you for all the wonderful memories that I was able to share with you through ALL these years. I enjoyed the bonding and the closeness, it made me even more proud to be an Apolonio. Me and my family will miss you so much.
Lolo I just want to thank you, thank you for raising a beautiful family that we all get to be apart of, the bigger the family got the bigger your heart grew, you showed us what unconditional love was all about. You were a wonderful father and a grandfather and will be greatly missed but never forgotten. Rest in peace lolo, till we see each other again. Give my Inang and Tatang a hug for me. I love you Lolo!
HI Lolo. Its obvious that soooo many people love you. I want to thank you lolo for raising a wonderful family filled with love and laughter, the qualities that everyone has mirrored from you. I'm thankful and honored that I grew up around this love and laughter. I will truly miss seeing you outside, getting your vitamin D when i drive by and "put-put", you wave and smile; or when we take walks and we see you watch over lola, like her body guard or a sweet admirer, as she pulls weeds from the yard. Lolo, do you even know that when you walk into a room, you are like a proud hero that everyone rushes to greet, kiss and hug (and take a picture with)? You and lola are what makes the bright room brighter at all our gatherings. Your ading Artong was very proud of you and thankful for all the love you've given to us. Thank you for letting me feel like one of your granddaughters. I love and miss you soooo much Lolo.

We thank you for all the sacrifices, hard work and never ending love for all of us. The foundation that you built for this family won't break down.
In our sight, you might be gone, but forever you will live in our hearts.
You didn't say much at times but we can see the happiness in your eyes when everyone of us is around you.
Who we are and what we accomplished now, it's because of your words.
You and Lilang are the inspirations of all of us.
As our kids grow, we will make sure that the love that you have given us will also be given to them, no less but a lot more.
Rest in peace 'Long. We love you..
Lolo we will miss you. You will never be forgotten. We think about you each and everyday. We just want to let you know that you are truly a blessing. We love you! Rest In Paradise.

I know your with papa Jesus Lolo I will miss kissing you in the morning and when I go home. I love you Lolo!
To my lolo who I miss and love so much, may you rest in peace. Your in a better place now. I remember summertime when we were young you would sit under the pear tree while we run around you were able to catch a lil bird with a string just sitting. You never told us how you did it. I will miss seeing you in your chair outside on sunny days. Your memories will live forever. Thank you for being the most caring and loving Lolo you are.
I LOVE YOU LO!
Lolo you were compassionate and so loving. You were adored by family and friends.You were the back bone of the family. And for that I want to thank you for everything. For taking care of me, teaching me life's values, and showing me what unconditional love really is. I am truly blessed to have lived under the same roof as you. To see your kids stop by to drop food off or cook for the both of you. The way you joke around when one of your grandkids visit. And when you see your great grandkids your smile, it's priceless.You sure did have an appetite, a great sense of humor, and a smile that is genuine. Lastly, how you looked at mama and how you took care of her everyday. That is pure love. Not too long ago after dinner me, you, and mama were sitting at the kitchen table laughing and taking pictures. Mama was not happy with the picture I took of her. I showed it to you and you smiled and said,“Napintas". One of the many memories I will cherish and hold close to my heart.
My heart aches knowing you are no longer with us, but I know you're watching over us. You raised a great big family. A family that loves, respects, and takes care of one another. With that, I am honored to be part of that family, your grandchild. I love you and miss you so much.
The sun will always shine where you're at Lo.
Until we meet again Lolo, Rest in Paradise.
You're the best father ever, understanding, loving and kind. Everytime I need your help, you were always willng to help me. Especially when it comes to the kids. I can't forget the way you've treated us, equal and loving to everyone.
Thank you so much tatang for everything you've shared. I will treasure it close to my heart. You've also taught me a lot of things in life. I thank you for molding me to be the woman I am today.
We miss you. May you rest in peace. God will take good care of you in paradise. Love you much.
Rest in peace Lolo. Fond memories of you will always live on in our hearts and minds.
Rest in Peace Lolo, Our Love is measured by the pain we feel at the loss. Thank you for a great family that you build. We Love you and miss you forever.
God wanted his angel hence you are very much missed. We did not lose you lolo because you still continue to imprint on everyone's life for the better. We couldn't ask for a better loving great-grandfather. We love you.
Lolo you will be missed by many people. You had a great influence on the whole family including friends. You were the perfect example of how to be a husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend.. You taught all of us how to be kind and respectful to each other. We will be forever grateful. You will never be forgotten as you will be in our hearts and memories. I remember one day I came and visited with you and Lola and Lola was lying on the couch and asked you to massage her feet. With no hesitation you reached over and massaged her feet. At that moment I learned how much love you had for each other. I am also going to miss how you would smile after Camille would dance in front of you. Those memories I will cherish forever. My heart is heavy in this saddened time. Thank you for the lessens youve taught, memories youve left, and the love youve given me. I miss you and love you dearly Lolo.
We're all sadden by your passing Lolo, we love you and you will always be remembered as a kind and sweet loving Lolo.
Lolo, even though you're gone, you will be never be forgotten. I know you're in a better place now and finally get to rest. Thank you for everything you've done for not just me but everyone in the family over the years. I'm going to miss stopping by the house to visit you & Mama and going to your room to give you a hug. You are one of the most important people in the world to me. I love you and miss you so much. Don't worry about Mama, she has all her kids, grand kids and great grand kids to look after her. RIP Lolo Love & Miss You!
The loss of someone so close is difficult to bear. We share your grief.
Thank you for being such a wonderful Lolo. We are all grieving about your passing but knowing that you in GOD's hand now comforts us. You will always be remembered and kept in our hearts. We love you and miss you dearly.
I am truly grieved of the passing of our beloved lolo Federico.It is so sudden that it's hard to accept but its the will of God.God has prepared a place fo him where there's no more pain, no more tears and no more sufferings.He is now with God praising and glorifying him, That's the beauty of dying when you know and accepted Jesus as your lord and savior.You have eternal life with him. Jesus is the only way the truth and the life, No one comes into the father except through him. Our condolence and prayers to the Apolonio family and prayers for the eternal repose of his soul.."We love you and we miss you Lolo Federico" R.I.P....

Thank you Lolo for taking care of me when I was little. Also thank you for babysitting Cierra. You truly are an inspiration for having such a large loving and close knit family. Even though it's a sad time for us now, your passing has brought everyone closer together. I know you are happy seeing everyone gathered and sharing stories about you. We are very blessed to have had you in our lives.

Lolo, we will always love and miss you dearly. These past several days have brought the whole family closer together. I hope you can see how much we miss you. Though you're physically not with us any more, we will always remember you in our hearts. It's as though you never really left. Please watch over us. Rest in peace, Lolo. We love you.
Dad, the agony from losing you is unberable and difficult to overcome. But it is God's will, and we know that you are now in heaven with Him and united with our beloved departed ones in eternal life, peace, happiness, and joys.
Thank you for everything that you provided us, as your sons and daughters from our birth up to the time that we were able stand up by ouselves. While you are gone, our endless love and memory of you will always be in our heats.
Tatang, i miss you so much. i find myself in tears when i come downstairs and no longer see you sitting on the chair in the kitchen. I'll always remember coming downstairs seeing you drinking coffee and eating bread. Whenever the babies and kids come I miss seeing your face filled with joy when you see them smiling and laughing. If the kids didnt come to the house you always asked why they are not coming. When I came home from work every night I would always go to your room to see if you we're awake and you tell me how your day was and who came to visit you that day. You always ask if I have eaten and tell me that manangs cooked or brought some food. I cant help but cry whenever i just sit down and think about you. I love and miss you so much tang...
Lolo, I can honestly say I have never seen a family so large with the bond you have created with yours. It is a caring and compassionate love for each other that you can clearly see, but on a level you can't really explain. I would see you at all the family gatherings with this happy look on your face, thinking to myself that that's a man that is proud of the family he has made. You are truly an inspiration on why family is the most important thing in our lives and because of that we hope that Bet and I are blessed with plenty of children and grandchildren just like you were. You are also one of the most important Male figures in our lives and it has been an honor knowing you.
Rest in peace LOLO; you are truly loved.
Rest in Peace Lolo, thank you for always making me feel like part of the family.
Our family has suffered a devastating loss with your passing, which has left us unbearably sad, and with a large void that nothing will ever help fill. We have come together as family this past week to help send you, our dear Lolo, off on your journey to heaven. And though we have come together to grieve, I also feel that we have come together not only to remember you, but also to share our love, support and comfort to one another. I know we cannot help the aches in our hearts or stop the tears from falling, but we should also try and remember that you are in a better place now, a place with no pain and no suffering. And for our own pain we should try and remember happy times with you and share those stories with each other because this is how we will keep your memories alive, by sharing them.
I remember all the family gatherings at Mama & Lolo's house for holidays, weekends and sometimes we didn't even need a reason to get together; we just did. It seemed like that no matter what path our lives took us as individuals, we always migrated back to Mama & Lolo's house because they were the center of our family; they were the start of it all. Lolo, you took care of us all and was always giving what you could without asking for much in return. You were a strong and loving person who always put others before yourself. You are one of the biggest reasons that makes me proud to be an Apple kid.
I remember summer days when us kids would come in for a break from playing and Lolo, you would make us scrambled eggs or buttered sugar toast or your infamous “chocolate meat”. I remember times during parties, when I would ask if I could help get you a plate of food, you would always ask if I've eaten yet and to make sure Mama had gotten food and was eating. I remember your stray cat Heng, who you let live as an outside cat, but always had food out for him. I remember when you ended up taking care of one our dogs, Mimi and how the dog wouldn't eat unless you, my dear sweet Lolo, hand fed him. You were always like that, you always wanted to make sure everyone was fed when they came to visit you. I think these gestures were one of your many forms of love. I think to this day, Lolo, you are still giving. You have given us a strong reminder about how important family is. You want us to remember to spend time with each other, to love each other and support each other and to take care of Mama. So I just want to sing a little song to help us remember you Lolo and also to share some memories of our strong and loving family:
“Fly, fly, fly the butterfly. In the garden they're flying high. In the meadow they're flying low.”
Those butterflies are still flying for you, Lolo. We love you and miss you every day.
I'll treasure every memory I had with you. I adore the love that you and Lola shared. You were the sweetest, loving and most kindest man I know. I'm honored that you were in many of my chapters in life. We'll miss you dearly Lolo.
"Rest in Peace Lolo" I'am so blessed and thankfull to be part of Apolonio Family..I know your happy and at peace because your with God and I thank the Lord for giving you 96 wonderful years..We love you Lolo..You will be forever in our hearts..
Lolo we will miss you very much. But thinking of memories of you makes me smile. I can still picture you watering your garden filled with eggplants, greenbeans and so much more. I remember how you would set a bowl of milk outside the window for your cat. After so many years I still remember. You maybe gone but you still live in my memories.
Love JJ, Michelle, Jachelle, and Cayden
Rest in peace Lolo. We love and miss you! Whenever the sun is shinning I'll remember the times you would sit outside and feel the warmth on your face and the happy look on your face when you hear and see children running around.
Love you Lolo!
Charleen, Jake, Jaylen and Jeric
We will always remember you as our loving, easy-going Lolo who had a great sense of humor. We love you very much.
R.I.P. Lolo. We love you!!
GOD be with you, Tatang. Rest In Peace.
I love you and I miss you so much.

Rest in peace, Lolo. We miss and love you so much.
