An Open Letter To Sir Larry Magnaye
Sir, sorry Sir, that it takes me quite this long before I can write anything to express myself something about you. To be blunt, you are one of the few persons who have carved a lasting impression in my life. I knew your name before we eventually met at the church. My cousin, Romy Lebios, was all praises about you. I heard you were in a vacation at States to be with your daughter who was living there. There was a very important matter to be decided at that time but was hold in abeyance until you came. No major decision of the church would ever be made without your concurrence; I learned later, you were the chairperson of the church council. You always have the final say.

The first impression I had for you was that you were a person of outstanding integrity and wisdom. Your words might be few but they served as a guiding principle to live by. Your pronouncement was consistently backed up by the way of life you were living. You were both Mr. Clean and Solomon. There was a queen of Sheba within me. Like her,I had some misgivings until I saw you personally that you were indeed rich in your integrity, wisdom and material possessions. The things I heard before were just the tip of the iceberg. I was quite awed of you, Sir!

However, there was one thing I noticed from you, Sir, which somehow irked me. Every time we talked, you asked me the same question that made me so uneasy and wanted to coin or invent some answer for it. You interrogated as if we were in a court room. I tried to impress you when asked me what were my skills and I told you driving, typing, farming, t-shirt printing, signage, etc. I sensed you were not particularly interested in my driving skill, typing, and farming. You cross-examined me concerning some business venture I knew and how could I ever reproduce them in bulk. (Tinanong mo po ako kung papano ko ito palalaguin at pararamihin.) To satisfy you, Sir, I bragged that I had the necessary skill to do it. To silence you, Sir, I told you the skill was not at stake but the capital. But I was terribly nervous when you asked Sister Cathy to give me the necessary capital. My God but Sir,. . .

Ugh! when you told us to prepare because you were leaving on a long vacation, my heart raged within me. I wanted to protest. Not yet, Sir. Do not leave us yet, please, Sir. Although you have made me typewrite the “Sayings Culled From The Nuggets Of Wisdom”, I felt they were not enough. Nevertheless, you were determined to go that was why. . . Sir, sorry Sir, I kept silent for years. I could not believe you were leaving us so soon. It was just all right with me to hear from you that you were leaving on a long vacation but when you hinted that you may never come back, was another thing! I hated to hear that, Sir.

Integrity? Yes, Sir, that’s true Sir. If I could ever think of Joseph-like integrity and fidelity, it would be you, Sir. When you refused a hapless woman and instead sent her to school until she got a degree, it really made me respect you the more, Sir. May be I will never be able to know who she is but when given an opportunity and capability like as you did, I hope I could do the same to others to lift them up from the quagmire of poverty and exploitation to a decent life. Sir, I will treasure your integrity, wisdom and generosity in my whole life. Thank you, Sir. Moreover, I may never be as successful man as you did, but given your example, I would exert and exhaust everything with the God-given faith and wisdom to aspire, believe, and eventually achieve great things in life.

I salute you Sir, as my wise teacher, father, and friend! Again, thank you, Sir. See you in heaven, Sir. Bye for now, Sir!

P. S. By the way Sir, thank you for the Dansen polo shirt and the pair of Bally shoes. I was very proud of them.

Mr. Magnaye is a very kind hearted man.
I knew him from Church in Shepherd, and as "Papa"
of Len. As i hanged around their place then where the church was,i felt how much they loved and respected him.

Whenever he was present, i felt his gentleness
and witnessed his generosity, so no wonder
everyone loved him. He was the most helpful
person i know... for most of us, its easy to help a relative, for him, he was willing to help anyone.

I remember driving him to Laguna or to Capitol for his check-ups, drove him even on his very last visit to the hospital where he passed away.
During the Laguna long drives were the times i learned a lot more about him. He shared how important integrity and kindness was, and how hard work and dedication led him to his success. He shared that family is most important more
than anything else, too.

So much of who he was inside and how he lived, extends to how his family are
today too. He was a very positive influence and role model. Each member of the Magnaye and Cosico family and those i know who have been close to him are all very warm and generous as too.

I have been truly blessed knowing you and your family! Thank you po, Mr. Magnaye, can i call you Lolo Mag?! :-)
