Michael Cruz was one of our SVS’75 classmates, familian Pedan. Lita ‘Bach’ told Lou about Mike . We told the SVS class via WhasApp chat and collected for the funeral. Rest in peace Mike.
Nina Pilar Santos’ funeral was today. Aina live streamed the church funeral mass and the burial at Pigo for us off-islanders.
When I got home from work today I happened to see Joann and Aina putting up live feeds of Pilar’s viewing, so I got on it, and projected it from my phone to the TV. Kind of like attending I guess. The funeral is Monday (Sunday here) so I hope to get live stream feed of that.

I don’t know, this is just a gripping and sad, somber tragedy that grabs onto me. More so… Continue Reading
I look for old friends, acquaintances, and Army buddies/associates from time to time. Particularly of the original USACC/USAISC Det Comm crew since we were sort of all closely associated as we came to Hawaii as a team. One of them was Jimm Sipp, SP5. After he left Hawaii I never heard from him again, and neither… Continue Reading
Three days and it still feels like a dark cloud is over the islands in horror of this tragedy. I mean I know this happens much more frequently in many mainland cities. So to… Continue Reading
Coming out of a bad news weekend, I come into work this morning and SSG Phung is on staff duty so is at the front desk.
