In memory of Alvin

Today, I found out that Janice Sy’s husband, Alvin, passed away.

They got married last February 10, this year.

I got a call from his sister informing us of his demise – cardiac arrest, he was playing basketball when he collapsed. Their family wants those who took part in their wedding informed.

I was shocked when I found out.

They were so in love. He’d be outside the fitting room everytime Janice fits. Occasionally plays with his PSP to while time away. And we’d share a laugh everytime Janice goes out of the room, feeling all giddy with her gown. He’d hold her head close to his body, sharing her happiness. He’d give me a big smile everytime I ask him if he’s excited for the wedding. Days before the wedding, I asked him again, and with a wide smile, he said “opo, sobrang excited na”.

I cannot fathom how Janice feels now.

I will pray for his soul but I will pray for Janice’ peace.

Please pray for her.

I was all too excited surfing for ideas for my own wedding, but instantly had tears in my eyes when I came across this post. I do not know Janice and Alvin but I'll surely pray for them, esp for Janice.. - KJ
