regardless of everything, i still regard you as one of the best teachers i have had.
nasa film school pa lang ako, isa na kayo sa mga idol ko. nang maging teacher ko kayo, every day was my stint in your school is one of the greatest learning experiences of my life. you really were one of my best teachers. the toughest, yes. but one of the best.
god veered me away from a dream so that i may fulfill another. and you were instrumental. and for that i owe you. and i thank you.
rest in peace, direk.
