"Through the years, you've never let me down
You turned my life around, the sweetest days I've found
I've found with you ... Through the years
I've never been afraid, I've loved the life we've made
And I'm so glad I've stayed, right here with you
Through the years"
Dolphy passed away and the whole nation and Filipinos around the world was deeply saddened. The outpour of prayers, posts, tweets, sympathies and tributes for the King of Comedy was tremendous.
I felt touched by the heartwarmingly-tearful eulogy when Zsa Zsa Padilla shares life with Dolphy and sang the song "Through the Years" during ABS-CBN's necrological service.
Dolphy created a profound impact in the Filipinos lives. He brought real laughter and smiles of happiness into our lives for decades. He gave hope during those saddest times. He touched lives not just through his comedic ways, but more through his great character and values.
I respect him for his humility, the talent he shared with the Filipinos and his commitment to his craft. True enough, he was more than a comedy actor.
I symphatize with his family and I join everyone in saying goodbye to Mang Dolphy! May your soul rest in eternal peace.
