” I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, and I have remained faithful. And now the prize awaits me the crown of righteousness which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give me on the day of His return. And the prize is not just for me but for all who eagerly look forward to His appearing.” 2 Tim 4:7-8 NLT
He was considered by many as the Political of Kingpin of the Bicol Region.
Highly respected by many for his intellectual prowess, creative thinking and out of the box ideas on anything. He was not only my mentor and idol but also to many. He continues to be our inspiration as he always motivated us to be the best on whatever we do. Even if you thought you have achieved the best, he would express that there is room for improvement.
More than his great mind, he had such a big heart! His compassion was exceptional and astounding. If my father believed in something, he will fight for it intensely and will not stop at anything. He was a TRUE CHAMPION of good causes and a fighter! But more than being a fighter; he truly loved serving our people and nation. In fact when my sister Mylene was with him praying in his last few moments, my Father said, “I pray for the Nation, Lord!” , when my sister asked if there was anything else he wanted to pray for, He reiterated, “Just pray for this Nation.”
He was a genuine public servant and servant leader and will continue to inspire us and the future generation!
WE LOVE YOU VERY MUCH AND YOU WILL TRULY BE MISSED!
Thank you so much to all who have expressed and continue to convey their love , support and sympathy ! Our family will be forever grateful!🙏 Says Lray Villafuerte
