Dolphy

RIP Dolphy (King of Comedy)
In the next few days, July 25; Dolphy would have turned 84. 
Rodolfo Vera Quizon in real life brought laughter and tears 
to millions of Filipinos for the last 66 years of his showbiz life.
When the news broke of his passing;
Filipinos all over the world offered him prayers & love; as well as 
sympathy and condolences to Zsa Zsa, Dolphy's children and the rest of the family.
I was one of the 35,000 people who lined up to visit the comedy king
during the last day of the public viewing at The Heritage Park in Taguig City. 
Tito Dolphy (who was laid to rest last Sunday afternoon July 15, 2012) 
died of Cardiac Arrest from Multiple Organ Failure 
resulted from complications of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder.
In a way, I know how it feels for the family to have lost someone 
they truly love since I just lost my Dad too few months ago.. :(
I grew up watching Home Along Da Riles 
and never imagined that I could ever meet him in person. 
I was just lucky then to have witnessed and experienced his humility and kindness. 
I remember approaching him outside E-Live studio
after he guested on December 19, 2009.
Here are some photos of him I took.
May you have eternal peace and happiness Tito Dolphy with our Lord Jesus Christ.
By the way, Ayala Malls will be holding special screenings of Dolphy's Films from July 27-29 for the benefit of 'Dolphy Aid' .
