No, you don't pester my mind at all, but I would like to write about some of you in this writing assignment. It's the wonder of technology and the social networking website, Facebook, which brought us all together. Of course, thanks to Skype, Yahoo Messenger, cell phones and of course phone cards which facilitated Sophie's calls from the U.S. and Charie's calls from Germany.
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/IHS72/Jingh opened IHS in FB too. Joe Bac joined Facebook Sept. 7, 2010 at James Carr's encouragement and with Joemel, his son's help. Joe Bac was so enthused about the reunion but unfortunately he passed away on October 19, 2010. James Carr, Jingh, Welcvic and Gertrudez went to their place, condoled with the family and accompanied the family to Joe Bac's burial. The rest of us sent money to the bereaved family, through Charie's niece, Rhea, who delivered the abuloy. And speaking of the dead and the abuloy, before Joe Bac's demise, our group were also united in condoling with the death of Rhodora's husband. We thank Sophie for putting up our initial Reunion fund, to Charie and Dante for $ pledges, for Joe De los Angeles for delivering the abuloy for Rhodora's husband and for Charie for facilitating the delivery of abuloy to Joe Bac's family.
We found Gilda through FB, and thanks to her son, Tony, our communication line is open. Lorna was informed by Sophie as both are nurses in the U.S. Jingh encouraged Jusimen and Ric and they joined our Yahoo group. There are more but as of now, they don't have their email addresses or FB accounts yet. Jingh and James Carr, etc. are coordinating with them.
Another milestone on Nov. 9: Charie from Germany called up Welvic, while Sophie from the U.S. called up Marlon. How do I know? We were at Skype too - in conference with James Carr, Sophie and Charie while they made their calls. James Carr was a big help: he obtained their cell phone numbers by going to the residences of these classmates, even Joe Bac's place. Thank you, James Carr!
So many years passed, too many stories to tell. We are all excited to see each other again...and until then I have to admit now, you pester my mind, he heeee.
