Rest in Peace

Alam ko pong ang buong bayan ay nagluluksa ngayon sa pagsabilang buhay ni Corazon Aquino. Sabihan nyo na akong morbid, pero palagay ko masaya na si Cory. Makakasama na nya ang love of her life na si Ninoy. I believe it's been a long while.

--00--

Nung linggo, napag usapan namin ni tintin ang 'dorm buddy' naming si Jack Boniol. Ladies man itong si Jack, at isang napaka buting kaibigan. Kung kaya nyang gawin para sa'yo, gagawin nya. Lahat yata kami sa Tierra Linda Ladies' Dormitory sa V Concepcion ay may 'Jack moment'. Nabalitaan kasi naming nag asawa na sya, at nagka-anak. I guess we really had a good time with him, so it's hard not to reminisce every now and then. Mahilig itong taong ito sa inuman, sa mga sasakyan, mga business ventures at malalalim na conversations. Sa simula, he'll strike you as a devil-may-care party person or kung hindi naman, malakas lang mag-trip. Kaso he'll surprise you every now and then, with his random acts of kindness and sincerity. Naalala ko nun, kaibigan nya yung mga batang kalye sa tapat ng dorm namin. Pasko nun, at nagdala sya ng mga bagong damit para sa kanila. Kung yung mga bata, tumatakbo paalis pag ay nakikitang DSWD na sasakyan (kasi they'll take them away, tapos maglalayas din sila everytime na nangyayari yun), pag andyan na si Jack, tatakbo sila palapit. Hindi naman sila nanghihingi ng pera (well, minsan), nakikipag kwentuhan lang.

Ay, alam nyo bang member sya ng MENSA? Nung mga panahon ko, nagmamaneho sya ng baby blue na box type na toyota, na hindi tinted. Kung nasaan ka man, at pwede sya--pupuntahan ka nya, kung kailangan mo sya.

Ang aming mabuting kaibigang si Jack...ayon sa google search ni Gwendolyn nung lunes (dating roommate), ay yumao na pala. Noong December pa, last year. Actually, writing that he passed away is putting it mildly.

Body of kidnapped trader dumped in Candaba

Monday, December 15, 2008. Sun Star Pampanga

CAMP OLIVAS, Pampanga -- The body of a Rizal-based businessman who was earlier kidnapped by still unidentified men was found in a grassy area in Barangay Mangumbali, Candaba last Sunday morning.

Reports reaching Central Luzon police director Leon Nilo dela Cruz identified the victim as Domingo Caezar Boniol, 31, of Angono, Rizal.

His Toyota Hilux pick-up truck was found also on Sunday by members of the regional Highway Patrol Group headed by Senior Superintendent Fernando Villanueva in Guagua town.

Investigation showed that Boniol whose family reportedly has animal feeds and veterinary products business was last seen when he left his office around 9 a.m. last December 10.

Around 11 p.m. on the same day, the victim's wife received a call from kidnappers who allegedly demanded P2 million for his release.

It was not immediately known what transpired afterwards.

The victim was strangled with "guile wire knotted in metal tube," according to a police report.

Boniol was blindfolded and his feet and wrists were wrapped with wires and gray-colored packaging tape.

The victim's body was brought to a funeral parlor in Arayat town for autopsy. (JAM)


Wala nang nasulat na development nung kaso sa mga dyaryo. Nahuli ba yung mga masasamang loob na pumaslang sa kanya? Na-identify man lang ba sila, at hinahanap na ng pulis ngayon? Sana lang, mabigyan ng katarungan itong pangyayari na ito. Mabait na tao itong pinatay nila. Bakit ganon?

Hindi ko alam--the very knowledge that he's gone is very unsettling. Para bang nung nandyan pa sya, and you didn't really think about it that much--things were the same. It felt safe. For some reason, it did. And now that he's gone--these places you used to be in--they no longer 'feel' safe at all.

Rest in peace, Domingo Caezar 'Jack' Boniol. Sa kanyang anak, at asawa na mahahanap ang entry na ito pag ni google nila ang buong pangalan ni Jakong, my sincerest condolences.

Jack--'ayos ba tayo dyan?' :(
