So sorry to hear about the passing of this young man. Sending our thoughts and prayers to Jusper's friends and family. I know you guys are going through tough times, stay strong and trust God's plan. Psalm 147:3 Revelation 21:4 Salamat sa pagiging kabarangay. You are an inspiration to me, Little Japeth.
