Jericho Aguas shared his sentiments on how difficult it is on his part to be with Isabel at her last moments.
KAMI learned from PUSH that Jericho aside from mourning, he is in a complicated situation being present on his ex-wife's wake.
HE said that it's as if he once again felt the pain the first time Isabel left him.
“Parang naulit po yung unang sakit na naramdaman po namin noong unang nawala sa amin si Isabel,”
Geryk (Jericho's nickname) said that he also considers what other people think since Arnel Cowley is also there.
"Mahirap yung sitwasyon dealing the funeral or wake with of course, Isabel’s partner. Marami pong nagiging samut-saring reaksyon, meron pong negatibo sa akin, meron pong negatibo rin sa kanya,” dagdag niya."
There was this incident where Hubert (Geryk and Isabel's son) brought some old photos with Mom Isabel and Dad Jericho. Hubert tried to display it. but some asked to remove it.
"Magkakasama kami (sa picture), dinispley po niya (ni Hubert), pero para wala raw pong issue, pinatanggal,” Geryk narrated
He also clarified that its not Arnel who asked to remove it but some of their friends and he'd rather not to name them.
"There are people that are here na gumigitna po sa amin. Actually, nakikiusap po kami, sinabi ko, may mga bagay na hindi namin makikita. Ako po kasi, I’m very open-minded, ayoko pong may mao-offend.
“Kaya minsan, nakaupo na lang ako do’n sa gilid. Ngayon, tatawagin ako lahat ng aking mga kamag-anak at of course, si Hubert, “halika dito”, sabi, “humarap ka sa mga tao.” Kasi iniintindi ko po si Arnel.”
Jericho admitted that it was really hard to deal with that kind of situation. He also revealed now that Isabel is gone, the more he realized that he has some regrets on what happened to their relationship.
"Tinext ko na rin actually ang mga spiritual mentor ko, tinatanong ko, bakit ngayon, parang merong mga pagsisisi. Kasi noon, nakita ko, talagang ginawa ko ang lahat pero ngayon, parang… sayang. May panghihinayang po of course, hindi ko naman itatago na meron ding ganu’n, pero babalik ka na naman sa nakaraan.
“’Yung mga effort din po naman na ginawa ko at sa lahat ng nangyari sa amin, eh, kumbaga, ako may kasalanan,” Jericho said.
Isabel's body is already cremated yesterday November 12.
