Gone Too Soon

Like A Comet
Blazing 'Cross The Evening Sky
Gone Too Soon

Like A Rainbow
Fading In The Twinkling Of An Eye
Gone Too Soon

Born To Amuse, To Inspire, To Delight
Here One Day
Gone One Night

- Gone Too Soon, Michael Jackson

This morning, while I was watching F.A.S.H. on TV, my husband asked me if I knew an AJ Perez, and I said, "Yes, he is a young local actor." Then he broke the news that AJ died earlier this morning in a car accident in Tarlac. I immediately jumped from the bed, and googled if the news is true. And, indeed, there displayed dozens of news story about the accident.

At such a young age of 18, AJ is really gone too soon. He is such a budding actor, having appeared in various TV shows, the latest in Sabel, in which he was one of the main characters. I read Ogie Diaz's tweets about this young actor, and it seems clear that he was a humble, kind and happy person. And he did not disappoint acting-wise. I fought tears when I watched the ASAP Rocks opening number earlier, where they gave a tribute to one of their own. I bet he will be surely missed by his ASAP Kapamilyas, judging from their reactions earlier. Such a waste of a vibrant life.

Condolences to the family and friends of AJ. And AJ, may your soul rest in peace.
