“After I learned he passed away, di ano ako... nakatulog ako for a while.
“Nagpakita siya sa akin sa panaginip. Kumakain kami. Nag-uusap. Nagtatawanan.
“Nagising ako. Hindi na ako makatulog. Lights open! Lahat ng ilaw, bukas!
“Mga 4:00 in the morning na ako nakatulog, at nagising ako ng 9:00 (AM).
“Kagabi, bukas uli ang mga ilaw! Hindi ako makatulog pag madilim!”
