I didn't know BJ Alisago very well--met him a few times, I think he practiced Eskrima, I watched him perform Kulintang once, and I interviewed him for a job at my old organization--but it's still very sad to hear of his too-soon, sudden and tragic passing. I believe he was only 27 years old. I wish his spirit light and love on its journey to the afterlife, and I know that he is now with our many ancestor-comrades, those who have passed on before us.
BJ's passing also teaches me that life is short and unpredictable, and that we must value our friends, comrades, family and loved ones every moment of every day.
A suspicion confirmed
