    I met ms manley when i was in kindergarten. Growing up just down the street and one of james friends i saw her often , everytime i saw her as a child and an adult she always smiled hugged me and
    asked how my family was. When i was little james got a pool and i would ride my bike up to his house and ms manley would make us lunch ... She was a room mom for all of our classroom partys and made
    them so much fun. As an adult knowing how she had worked so dedicated with love and warmth with the disabled inspired me more in my own career.. James and aunt gerri there is no doubt you have one of
    gods most beautiful angels watching over you.. May god bless your family.

  • Ernesto and Gloria Chua (Thursday, October 13 16 01:40 pm EDT)

    Our deepest sympathy to Comadre Cora and family, and our most profound prayers for compadre Eddie, Cora and family.
    How fortunate were we to have visited with all of you in the hospital 8 days ago and at your house 5 days ago. And how sad were we to come to your house 2 days ago when he was no longer with us. We
    hope and pray that you all find some solace in the saying that "When somebody you love is no longer where he was...He is now wherever you are!"
    Ernie, Glo and family

  • Salvateras (Saturday, October 15 16 10:42 am EDT)

    I am personally thankful for your kind heart and generosity Doc Maglaya. I am deeply honored to have the chance to work with you in surgery and again thank you for saving my dad's life way back 1987.
    He lived 20+ years more after that. In your journey towards the light the memories of good deeds and keeping inspiration alive among the people around you will usher you. It is gonna be a new and
    extraordinary journey which you will unite with many other beings who will continue to bring forth inspiration in the air.

  • Linda Vicente Dellota (Thursday, October 27 16 10:54 am EDT)

    I am Linda Vicente Dellota. When I was 18 years old in Sampaloc Manila Doc Ed Maglaya saved my life from lobar pneumonia. I think he just finished his medical school that time. I'm very grateful for Doc Maglaya for giving me the chance to live. I am 70 years old and I owe my life to this great and wonderful person. Our sincerest prayers and condolences to the Maglaya family. May Dr Adolfo M Maglaya rest in peace with the Lord. Love from the Vicente and Dellota family.
