For Jose Capadocia~

Is told and As told
(For C.C-Y.)
In parables,
the loyal servants could only be,
in the shelter of the mountain goddess.
Seven brothers Seven sisters
Seven brothers and sisters.
Seven sons Seven daughters
Seven sons and daughters.
In parables,
the faithful will not perish.
Could only be lost
Perhaps, stranded.
Or in the shelter of the mountain goddess.
Today, the fishermen cannot stand the smell of fish
and a master inspects bodies
Of servants, all perished.
Though loyal and faithful.
In parables,they live.
(Francess Raymundo 2009. Manila)
Our deepest condolences go out to the family of the late Press Undersecretary Jose " Jocap" Capadocia. [ his remains were transferred to the Arlington Memorial Chapel along Araneta Avenue in Quezon City from Malacañang on April 10]
This is especially for his sister, Celia Capadocia -Yangco (Department of Social Welfare and Development Undersecretary).
My mother, Nora Raval Salaysay (Raymundo) regrets that she cannot  be physically present with the other PCC’62 batchmates (LBCs) of Ma’am Celia [ my former Chancellor, Dr. Antonietta Fortuna-Ibe, is also part of  the PCC’62 batch ) who share
Celia’s grief.
At present, my mother is physically infirm.
Again, our deepest condolences.
