    Asinol was a very good man, helpful and was very friendly in the village and wherever he visited around the country.
    To his family, stay strong, celebrate the life of your dad/ grandpa.
    He will be remember for his charism and jokes, laughter and encouragement through sports and social event.

    RIP Lox! I remember the days of the Great Freedom Party under Mamo with Brian as the Mahaut Rep, when you sir was a stalwart. Rest peacefully with the ancestors knowing that you have done your share.
