Dinner at Club Filipino, Philippines, 2-23-09:

          Seated:   Dr. Cecilio Felix, DVM & wife Anita (from Rancho Murieta, CA), Dr. Ted Topacio, DVM and Atty. Rico Arranz.

          Standing: JJ Jayme and Butch Madarang.

 

Excerpts from JJ's email to Tatang Vergara, 2-23-09:

Brods Rico Arranz and Cecilio Felix accidentally bumped into each other at the Bahay ng Alumni.  Brod Arranz asked for the invitations and drove Brod Felix and wife inside campus where they were staying and got the invitations.   And so dinner was arranged later that evening.   So this is how Brod Arranz does things for the fraternity.  He personally gets involved.  He is just so active and dedicated to the fraternity.  And at 82, it is so difficult to keep up with him.

 

That particular day, he was at U.P. for a 10am meeting with Brod Frank Cornejo, bumped into Brod Felix, picked up the invitations, called me up around noon, told me he met Brod Felix and that he has the invitations, told me to proceed to the office at 5 to meet him to discuss a few things, arranged for Brods Topacio and Felix to be picked up and then met them and Brod Butch Madarang at 7 at the Club Filipino and finished that close to 9:30pm.  Typical day for Brod Arranz.  You can bet the invitations will be delivered to all tomorrow.

Cheers,  JJ

            Brods,
 
            It's been some time and Ding has not really 'awakened'. Ding has been very much in touch with this loop
            for about two weeks before he underwent operation, communicating with brods and expressing his concerns.
 
            Let's continue praying for Ding, Brothers. Prayers work, and there's always hope.
 
            We in Northern California had the pleasure of his company a few years ago. For those who haven't
            seen him lately, here are photos so you can put a face to your prayers.
 
            Fraternally,

                         *From Sis Marie Ganchorre, Washington: "Prency was close to a lot of the Diliman brods. Her father was also

                                       April but will be celebrated with a great loss of a classmate."  

                                   *From Brod Freddie Fajardo, Los Banos: "The Cedillo's were our long time neighbors before at Faculty Hill.

                                        My father and Prof. Valentin Cedillo (UPLB Grand Counsellor '54-'55), were colleagues at the Dept. of

                                        Agricultural Education. Except for Sis Prency, who was much mature than us at that time, Amor, Ruby, and
