Updated News about Jessie Devera!

From: rosolano Subject: Re: updates on jessie devera
Date: Tuesday, 14 October, 2008, 1:51 AM

Hi Schoolmates,
Heard from Joey Z what happened to Jessie, thanks for the update. For a while i am a bit confused bec two of my buddies were telling me that it was Ediong, Jessie's yuonger brother (married to Laila Lacerna) who had brain tumor but recovered ultimately, and that was sometime ago...Anyhow, it is quite obvious from the letter below that it is indeed Jessie. Jessie was and is a good friend especially during the Dance Troupe days, right Hilda? I have asked my batchmates in our loop for prayers and other assistance, particularly one who is working in PGH to visit Jessie. I have asked also a minister friend to attend to Jessie's spiritual needs. We'll keep him in prayers and inform two of his good friends - jojo sartin & valero, and boy laano, too. guess the three can circulate to others this concern. Pls extend our personal concerns and prayers to him and his family... May God touch's be with Jessie and bring him to complete recovery...i know fully how it is..., my wife had survived two brain tumor surgery. God bless all of you...
God bless all of you... (Ptr) Rey Solano

Hi batchmates, this is Lilian del Mundo de Guzman IV-EM, This is to inform you all that our 30th Alumni Homecoming will be on December 29, 2007. Its Final, Nelson Singson is this Yr President.
Were sorry for the late announcements due to the past May election many of us were so busy on those days. Anyway tapos na election kaya eto were in a hurry na matuloy ang reunion. And we hope many can come so batchmates be here in Lucena..
Eric Dedace, for your info, Michelia is now Judge Michelia Oriel Capadocia in Cagayan de Oro City. Di ka kasi umatend nung May 2004 sa Queen Margaret andun kaya sya, nagkita sana kayo. And we know your talent when it comes to documentations kaya we included you as one of the members for Souvenir Program kahit di ka umaatend ng meeting. Pero puntahan ka naman ni Nelson Singson dyan sa Sariaya to inform you. Kaya ilabas mo at halukayin ang mga tinago mong trivias. Kaya be there at Citang's place or sa Life Studio on Augsut 25 for our meeting.
Bye, and will post here the details of our reunion. Till our next email.

Good morning Roland!
Wasn't able to open my e mail for days kaya walang reply! Anyway, I am so glad you had the wisdom of creating a website for QPHS Batch 1977, at least may tambayan na ang lahat sa internet, di ba? Dito nga lang sa atin ay siguro di pa rin marami ang online but at least we who have connections can help facilitate communications, especially between them and you who are abroad , kung may mga concerns sila! By the way, nakaka-attend ba kayo ng mga batch reunions sa Lucena? Ang parang na remember ko if I am not mistaken ay si Maritess Parafina yata one time!

I hope you will be able to do so kasi this coming December yata eh mayroon. Dati kasi eh nakakasama kami nina May Galera-Dimacali , taga Sariaya rin (I'm sure you know her, isa siya sa mga pinakabilyaka sa atin) mga meetings noong una! kami nga palagi ang sa mga tsibug at programme committees, but now we are both busy with commitments, kasi taong simbahan siya while I with the local toiurism council and the heritage works...mga pang Sariaya Museum at local research.

Kaya nga pagdating sa mga documentations ay sanay ako, especially those pertaining to the past...nostalgia epek kumbaga. masaya ang Quezon High noong kapanahunan natin at maram,ing bmga bagay na talagang obsolete na at di na totoo sa ngayon, but charming and refreshing enough to be worth writing and highlighetd for everybody's enjoyment. We're getting to be middle aged now and are little by little, bound to hold on to things which we cherished after all those years! Sige, will try to halukay and halikwat-bulatlat my Quezon High files and resurrect them to good light. Hahanapin ko nga yung ala Magical Mystery Tour na sinulat ko noon, by school year about batch '77s four year stay in QPHS na sinulat ko for the 1997 reunion at binasa namin noon sa harap ngmga ka batch!

Alam mo , parang familiar ka sa akin, dun sa mga photos ninyo sa Toronto QPHS reunions ninyo! Ang tagal na pala nating naka graduate ano, almost 30 years na! Ako kung matatandaan mo siguro eh yung dating payat na kasamahan nina Richard Osmond, Ramon Beloso, Freedom Dellosa, Renato Vergara, Celso Zarsuelo (RIP),Ricardo Cueto, Jerry Santos, and the like.Member ako ng Glee Club, kasama nina Arween Flores, Danao Vega, Michelia Oriel, Diza Zabalerio, Joseph Herrera, Michael Bucoy, Ronnie Banagan, Minerva Lacap, Mariam Maas, Jose Zuniga, etc.

I hope you still remember the names, kahit matagal na yun! Pati mga teachers, yung mga alyas nila sa ating mga estudyante noon at mga masasayang kalokohan, fads, sounds, etcetera, natatandaan ko pa! Bubuhayin natin through your website for the greatest joy of everyone online! Whatever, we share the same experience at Quezon High, for sure your greatest motivation why you did the website!
Anyway, I hope you continue to keep in touch, and I will be too glad to be of help with the batch website! Regards batchmate!
Truly yours,
Eric J. Dedace

Subject:Hello from Sariaya
Good evening! I am Eriberto Ricardo "Eric" J. Dedace, QPHS Batch 1977, from Sariaya, Quezon! I have been surfing the QNHS Global Website and was diasppointed that there isn't any web link with it for our batch. Anyway, the webmaster Mr. Bal Yojuico of Batch 1968 answered my e mail and we had a series of e mail exchanges. It finally culminated with a message saying that there is already one and that the batchmates behind it will have it linked. They will also send me photos of their Copacabana Ball for the 105th founding anniversary of Quezon High which they celebrated last July 14, 2007 in Toronto, Canada!

Anyway, I was surfing tonight and for some nostalgic reason thought of typing the name of Michelia Oriel, since I haven't heard from her eversince she graduated from UPLB last 1981, hoping to get some info about her, and then this link came out, much to my surprise and excitement! Meron pala nito, at exclusively sa batch pala natin! The last time I attended a reunion was in 2003, and I simply lost track! Bukod kina May Galera-Dimacali at German Valle na mga kapwa ko Sariayahin, at biglaang pagkikita sa Lucena kina Amon Salva, Cecil Abril, Rona Aliento, etcetera, plus occasional texts from Richard Osmond and Renato Vergara eh wala na akong balita o contact masyado sa ka batchmates, until now!

So I would like to say that I am very happy to have found the missing link to our batchmates through the net! Kung si Michelia po itong ini e mail ko ngayon or whoever, Kumusta ka na ngayon? If you wish for nostalgic contributions to this website, I have some materials, mementoes of past reunions in1992 and 1997, photos and watever. I even have with me four Manila paper mini murals depicting the life that batch '77 had in Quezon High between 1973 and 1977, divided into the four school years we've been there!, which I patiently and lovingly did for our 20th anniversary reunion. I'm perfectly sure, everybody can identify with it, with things like nung manalo tayo sa PNB Mag Impok Movement noong 1975 at bulok pala yung bus na ibinigay, or nung magkaroon ng Palarong Pambansa sa Lucena noong 1976, and the like! Sinabi ko na ito kay Mr. Bal Yojuico through e mail, and I'am so happy that I get to reach out directly to you ka batchmate!

Just e mail me back and I will be very happy to do my part in contributing to the website, puwede po akong magsulat ng kung anu-ano basta sa buhay natin noong una sa Quezon Hgh, na nakakalungkot ang hitsura at condition sa ngayon. Puwede pa ring gawin nating musical ang ating memory lane with sounds like Let me Try Again, We May never pass This Way Again, Sweet Painted Lady , The Bump, TSOP, City of Angels, As Sure As I'm Standing Here at Bohemian Rhapsody , etcetera kung gusto ninyo! I am partial to QPHS, rather than QNHS because it was the Quezon High that I will always cherish and remember!

Good night and God bless! More power to the website and to us all! We mav be getting old but we will always be those so-called bungling freshmen who entered Quezon High in 1973, and the wisened at puro sungay na seniors ( na di man lang nakatikim ng panalo sa intramurals at nagkaroon ng Miss Quezon High)na nag graduate noong 1977, na nag Diamond Jubilee celebration ang school natin, at nag retire si Miss Daleon! B'ye for now and till next e mail!

Truly yours,
Eric J. Dedace
