We will never forget your fun times with us in the Philippines, Tito Piyop. Aside from telling jokes, you loved making us laugh by speaking and acting like a girl. It is hard to be serious when you‚??re around. I recall you were lecturing me and a cousin or two about a misdemeanor we did, but we were smiling almost all throughout the lecture. If my memory serves me right you even looked for a belt, not to hurt us but to show us that you were really serious and we should stop smiling. Yes, that made us stop but at the end of the talk you made that ‚??gay hand gesture‚?? and got us all cracking up. You were not just a funny uncle but one who did not mind helping his very young nephews and nieces with their schoolwork. You always help us with all our drawing assignments while you were in college and us in grade school. Our teachers always asked us who did our projects or assignments, for your sketches are always on point. I can still picture the very life like Ibong Maya (Philippine National Bird during that time) sketch you did for my Araling Panlipunan assignment. We know the bunso is now with Lolo Tanchong and Lola Mary in heaven. We will never forget you, Tito Piyop, never have never will.
Distance was never a measure of how close you are to us, though we were miles apart, you never made us feel like a distant relative whenever we had those brief moments when you visited Pinas. I was too young to recall, but stories from folks back home would tell how you were always the ever thoughtful brother and devoted friend. We‚??d always hear stories of you being the basketball legend here in Paltok. We Francisco boys could only hope to compare, but we were always proud to live up to your glory. I‚??m glad we finally got a chance to meet you when you went back, that brief stay showed me how you were the ever loving husband to Tita Rosal and a wonderful father to your daughters, Kelcie and Katrice. You‚??d call every day from Pinas to the states just to say hi, good morning, goodnight and I love you. The ever thoughtful brother to your kin, and how we‚??d hear nothing but good things from them about you as their bunso. I could listen to my folks, tita‚??s and tito‚??s all day and they‚??d never stop of telling stories about you. The hardworking Architect that designed the famous ‚??kambal‚?? houses in our Paltok ancestral home. The fun-loving and goofy Tito to your nieces and nephews, how you looked after us before you went for the states. And how you were ‚??one of the guys‚?? trying to be hip yet firm to me and my cousins when you went back in 2004. Goodbye Tito Piyop, thank you for the memories, the inspiration, your love and support. Say hi to Lolo and Lola for us. Kami na po Bahala sa mga kapatid mo. We‚??ll love them as much as you did, and we‚??ll continue your legacy. Rest assured we will also always be there for Tita Rosal, Kelcie and Katrice, and we‚??ll love and look after them, like how you looked after us. Paalam Tito Piyop, Salamat sa lahat. Till we meet again. Denden
As the youngest daughter of Arnulfo (Popo) Francisco, I was only 3 years old when Uncle Piyop left for the States. Then, I had the chance to know him better when our Grandfather Tanciong and Grandmother Mary died. I will never forget when we used to tease him to buy pizza and ice cream for us, and he wouldn't hesitate to treat us. He's a very jolly person, an Uncle that every niece or nephew would want to have. We were deeply saddened by your loss, Uncle Piyop. But we know that wherever you are right now, you're happy to be in God's loving arms together with Grannies. Your love for us will always be treasured. Goodbye for now Uncle,, but only for now..

What seems like just yesterday, now we have to say an unexpected goodbye to our beloved uncle Manolito Francisco whom we fondly called "Tito Piyop" son of the late Constancio Culata Francisco and Maria Hipol Francisco. He is the youngest brother of my dad among the eight siblings. His time with us seemed so incredibly short. Now we know Tito Piyop that your smiling down on us from heaven with Lola Mary & Lolo Tanchong! Tito Piyop, thank you and we love you! We will never forget you. You will always be in our hearts. May you rest in peace in the loving arms of our creator in heaven.
