Siya ay 87 years old na ngayong taon at gusto lamang namin na habang andito pa siya at nabubuhay. Mabigyan siya ng pag alala sa nauwi nyang karangalan sa ating Bansang Pilipinas noon

I am hoping to voice out his legacy since He is now too old and as he saw Hidilyn Diaz compete and bring home the Gold, He was so amazed and remembered his journey nakarelate sya kasi totoo mahirap humanap ng sponsors, nahirapan daw sya magfocus noon kasi at the same time kailangan nyang kumayod para itaguyod ang pamilya.

We will never get tired of listening to his stories. Ang masakit na part lang, Sana nabigyan din sila ng sapat na suporta at pagkilala noong panahon na binuhat din nila at dinala ang Pilipinas noon.
I’m so grateful to be Filipino and proud to be his Apo. Our Super Handsome LOLO Artermio 🏋🏻‍♂️
