Not sure what to say?

I had the chance to know more Uncle Nano and his family when they visited us here in Toronto 3 years ago,though i met them way back in Taganaan.I can't forget his huge smile and the sparkle in his eyes when he recalled those fond memories with our relatives back home.It was very obvious that he has a warm and caring heart not only to his family,his siblings but to our relatives as well.I thank God for that moment that i was able to hug him in person.I love u uncle!You are gone physically but...

I remember this photo I took of you Lolo Nano and Lola Shirley. How candidly sweet you are here. I feel blessed that I met you 7 years ago when you visited Ph. I always asked Tita Gigi of when will you plan to go back here. But unfortunately, you can't since your body needs to rest.

Lolo Nano, I will always miss your happy voice. Telling us your short stories while you were young will I also surely miss. The gift (gold slacks and checkered shoes) you gave to me will always be...

I thank the Lord God for giving me Daddy Nano who shows us the true meaning of family. To my Uncle family means love, respect and caring for each other. He is always there for us when we need support either moral or financial. Daddy never says no to his siblings, he always listen and worries about them even when they're old and have families of their own.

As a niece I am so blessed to grow up and live with them he is not just an Uncle but a father to me. When I came to North...

I will always remember Lolo Nano as a kind and generous man. A doting husband, and father, he was a good brother to my Lola, and a wonderful father figure to my mom. I will always cherish the times I spent with him here with us in Canada. His memory will live on forever in the lives of those he loves.

My first meeting with Uncle Nan in 1990 in NYC was very memorable,coz they are the only family that I know here in America,I was reviewing my nursing board exam and a little bit worried for the test ,but uncle told me don't worry you will make it,they brought me to their house in Philadelphia and spend Christmas with them.He told me if you pass you can petition your tatay Luis and Nene so that they can come to America.Uncle Nan is like my second father to me,he love to tell me stories about...

For the family of Nan, as he must be sorely missed in this difficult time, my thoughts are with you all. (Jeremiah 29:11)

Having known you Nan with your young family for 46 years in West Philly, extending your arm for a handshake with a smile introducing your lovely young wife and 3 lovely small kiddos with 2 of ours at the time, is a smile we shan't forget, totally embedded in our mind! We will miss your company here but
the thought that you will be there to welcome us, your very old friends except two originals, with both stretched arms and a smile is enough to temper our tears of sadness! Condolence...

Uncle Nano, we may have spent few days together when you're back here in the Philippines when I was a kid. And fewer still while you were vacationing. Of course, spending them with your brothers and your sisters, including my Mom, and remembering how happy those days are is now part of my treasured memories. And those memories are priceless.

Dear Tio Nano, and family although we only met once, I felt the warmth of your love when Alex, Nelia and I visited you all in Philadelphia. I am pretty sure your in a better place now and let assure to rest in peace. With love and prayer always, Nene, Alex and family.
