    1 Corinthians 15:55-57
    55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
    56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.

    A reflection on Mori’s passing:

    It was sometime early last year, when I saw Mori in one of Filipino gatherings, he called me aside and said, he wanted to show me something. I wonder what it was. Out from his pocket, he showed me an old group picture of me and him with our good friends when we worked together late 1960s- yes – I knew him and Marina that long. Mori has been carrying that old picture around to show me and other old friends in that picture that he might meet. Marina and Mori came earlier here in US and they were more settled than we were when we came. Most of us in our group where in our first few years in states so we look forward being invited in their home so we can savor Marina’s cooking, her favorite pastries and relish their hospitality. Mori carrying that picture was reminiscing those happy days of us being able to get together enjoying the friendship and support of each other.

    Mori and Marina have grown close to many of us that they became Ninang and Ninong in weddings of our friends– our own in 1967. Me and Marcy were delighted and honored that day especially when their late daughter Diana became as our flower girl. They also became one of the sponsors in our daughter’s wedding.

    Professionally, we were on different specialty. Mori is an anesthesiologist and I am an internist but I have seen him in action while we were in Lutheran hospital. In one of Blue 100 call, our code for a person on cardiac arrest, Mori answered the call and acted in a swift but in a calm methodical manner during that intense life and death situation quickly taking command of the patient’s breathing. The patient survived and I am sure Mori in that moment had a feeling of fulfilment in his chosen specialty.

    Mori has distinguished himself by his dedication to his work- not too many of us would still love working in their 80s. He was endowed with a bright mind. He is kind and generous and his manners marked with gentleness and honesty. He is faithful and loyal – general traits that makes us very fortunate to be one of his friends.

    Thank you, Mori, for allowing us to be a part of your life’s journey and passage.

    All of us go through LIFE that could be beautiful and wonderful but it could also be ugly and stormy sometimes. Life is fleeting like the sunset. On the other hand, as we see Mori lying there, one could see Death is peaceful, quiet and serene

    Our deepest sympathy,
    Logie, Marcy, Earl, Michelle and Joel

  13. Dear Logie, Marcy, Earl, Michelle and Joel,

    Thank you the thoughtful and personal reflection on Mori’s life. Your words are very comforting during this difficult time.

    We are truly grateful for your friendship throughout the years and will always remember your kindness, generosity and support.

    May God bless all of you.

    Marina, David, Mary and Michael Tuason
