Day 6



Dear Wool Reyes,

Its your 6th day in the hospital. 

Right after i finished writing you yesterdays letter , your 2nd sister chuckle called asking me to come to the hospital early morning. You showed signs that water in your lungs started to accumulate. It was not a good sign. Didnt' you promised me to remain strong and positive ,right? The doctors said you are tough and you are a fighter-- Please remain strong and we will make it. We will take things 1 step at a time. 

Today Your youngest sister's bestfriend came, She serenaded you with songs you always ask her to sing. Remember each time you see her with Cheil, you do not let them go until she sings you songs. Your room was filled up with 4 songs of hope , inspiration and love that you always ask her to sing. Oh my , she was crying while she was singing you all these. Your siblings were crying and Mom was holding your hand as we listened to Kathleen sing to you again....

She sang you your favorite "A Whole New World" from Disney's Aladdin.

"A whole new world
Don't you dare close your eyes
A hundred thousand things to see
Hold your breath - it gets better
I'm like a shooting star
I've come so far
I can't go back to where I used to be

A whole new world
Every turn a surprise
With new horizons to pursue
Every moment red-letter
I'll chase them anywhere
There's time to spare
Let me share this whole new world with you

A whole new world
That's where we'll be
A thrilling chase
A wondrous place
For you and me "

She sang you to also your favorite , Bubbly by Colbie Cailat

You made me cry again when i heard this part:

"Will you count me in?
I've been awake for a while now
You've got me feelin' like a child now
'Cause every time I see your bubbly face
I get the tinglies in a silly place

It starts in my toes
And I crinkle my nose
Wherever it goes
I always know
you make me smile
Please stay for a while now
Just take your time
Wherever you go "

and also Gary Valenciano's song... "Reaching out"...

"What must I do to make you understand 
You mean everything to me 
Don't have the strength to say 
Give this heart of mine a chance 
And maybe then you will see... 

I'll do anything, do anything that you tell me 
I'll be there, I'll be there if you need me. 

Reachin' out to you 
Do you feel it too 
Lovin' you is all I wanna do 
I'm completely sure 
I've never felt this way before 
When I smile you know that there is something more. 

What must I do so I can make you see 
The light that shines in my eyes 
You brighten up my day 
You even help me find my way 
I wish you're always by my side 

And I can't stop, don't know how to stop thinkin' of you 
And I'll do anything, do anything to be near you... 

Reachin' out to you 
Do you feel it too 
Lovin' you is all I wanna do 
I'm completely sure 
I've never felt this way before 
Deep inside you know that there is something more. 

and yes, Daddy's song...

"What A Wonderful World"

I see trees of green, 
red roses too. 
I see them bloom, 
for me and you. 
And I think to myself,
what a wonderful world. 

I see skies of blue, 
And clouds of white. 
The bright blessed day, 
The dark sacred night. 
And I think to myself, 
What a wonderful world. 

The colors of the rainbow, 
So pretty in the sky. 
Are also on the faces, 
Of people going by, 
I see friends shaking hands. 
Saying, "How do you do?" 
They're really saying, 
"I love you". 

I hear babies cry, 
I watch them grow, 
They'll learn much more, 
Than I'll ever know. 
And I think to myself, 
What a wonderful world. 

Yes, I think to myself, 
What a wonderful world. "

Oh my , Wool, the songs that was sung to you is what we all wish for you. Its the song of what is happening to you, to mom and us your siblings. 
As i write this , I am left with sooo much tears and I cant help but think of you so much. How you live your life. How you touched many of your friends lives. You are amazing. All of us your siblings are holding on just for you to open your eyes again. Please , Wool wake up.

Mama Mary please give us Wool again. Please. I beg you....

My little brother , please open your eyes.
Let's play and walk . 
Wake up, Wool ... We are counting on you. Fight ! We need you.

It's a different game now, It's God's Free kick now.
Go little brother ! Go get it Wool! 
I'll see you later.

I offer my condolences at this time of your grief. Wool was a friend and team mate and one of our starters when we tried to get a UAP official football varsity going.

I recently saw him at a wedding which my wife Cher was part of the wedding planning stuff. I saw wool with a glass of scotch in one hand walking towards me. As usual, whenever we bump into each other its as if we just saw each other yesterday.

I have to admit its a very "Ill call Jim" moment for me. Great guy your brother. I am sorry I wont be able to make it to the wake as I am away on business till next week. Ill have him in my prayers. I was soo looking forward to having him teach my 5 year old the basics.

God bless and give you all strength. Again, my condolences,

Pele Anonas
