“Pero nabigo dn po syang makaipon nun dhil tanging pagkain lang minsan ang bnabayad sa mga extrang trbho nya.Dahil sa pagkadismaya at kawalan ng pag-asang makauwi ng Iloilo ay pinili nalang mabuhay dito sa Mindanao hanggang sa nakarating sya sa BRGY.GREENHILLS MUNICIPALITY NG PRESIDENT ROXAS NORTH COTABATO.
