Our Thanks With Regard to Nichi

Our whole family would like to thank all of you, especially those who have been with us from the start of Nichi’s battle. Thank you for fighting his disease with us. Thank you for being so generous in your support—prayers, concern, advises, gifts, medicine, blood, and money.

We are sure that Nichi himself is filled with gratitude for all that you’ve done for him.

Our hearts will forever be touched by your caring so much for our precious Nichi. With all your help, Nichi felt more loved, not just by us but also by everyone around him. It made his life complete. And the thought that many people were rooting for him always gave him the courage to fight and face whatever treatment was on his way.

Nichi is definitely smiling down on us right now. He is at peace and pain free—exactly something he deserves right from the start. We often imagine him singing and dancing with other angels up there, entertaining the saints and Heaven’s higher inhabitants with his charming ways.

Nichi will forever be missed but the love he had shared when he was still alive will never fade. And so will the miracle he spurred—the miracle of people caring for people, no matter how close or how much of a stranger they are from each other.

Now it is no longer a boy with leukemia who keeps us connected, it is an angel enjoying the victory of his battle that somehow binds us all.

Thank you for witnessing and tagging along Nichi’s journey. You’ve all made his adventures special from beginning to end!

Delgado Family

Note: We had Nichi’s body cremated last Saturday, July 28, 2007. His ashes are at home right now and will be transferred next Sunday, August 5, 2007, at the Ossuary beside the Immaculate Conception Cathedral in Pasig.
