Friends, Students, Colleagues Give Tributes to Rev. Dr. Edwin I. Lariza
DZ, wife of Rev. Lariza, shared her recollection of their conversation the day after his confinement to the hospital in late February.
TRANSLATION: Mamsing (or Mama), let’s make a stand on what we talked about that I will rest now… let’s be firm on it Mamsing.. I assured him that we will stand together. We were gripping each other”s hand tightly by his hospital bed a day after he was admitted. I told him ok Popsing (or Papa) sleep for now – you always tell me – Rest if you must but don’t quit…We will stand pa and I wont quit FOR YOU..our battle cry – PADAYON (Continue)… We embraced each other…He told me to never leave the ministry -NETS (he conceptualized the ministry and gave the name) and the MSPM, should be continued. I thought it was just because he will have a vacation with me in Negros…Papa your visions will never die… I COMMIT TO PURSUE IT..
