DAD'S MOST MEMORABLE SPEECH. WHEN HE RETURN TO CITYHALL FROM SAN JUAM DE DIOS MAY 27.
on may 27,1999 my father was discharged from sjdh, from there he went directly to his office at city hall. we have no plans no arrangements , we just made some preparations for our van to accommodate him in the wheel chair. at the city hall we have no intention to show him to the public for he is not fit and visually weak yet, how ever at the drive way he insisted to be shown to the public and to be brought up to the mayor's office, when word spread that joc is in city hall , most of the employees swarm the entrance and try to see him in hier eyes, that he did survive the stroke.
on arriving at the 2ND floor and he conference room of the mayors office, most employees of city hall, forced their way to the mayors' office later i was surprised when my father gave a speech ad hoc, fresh from his stroke, from his more than a month confinement and brain operation..... he did a very excellent speech that day that alot of people cried. we believed that his speech that day was guided by the holy spirit which he mentioned.
at this photo my dad is being lowered from the van to be taken to his office, right after being discharged from the hospital
the photo above, after being shown to my dad, his comment was he is like " the ElCiD" being shown to his enemy
