"It was only four months, when according to him, he met Hubert somewhere in LA in November in that year.
"Even before and after he testified, he somewhat...he wants to ask for an apology.
"Kaya lang, naaawa rin ako sa kanya kasi nagkaroon ng parang impresyon ang mga tao na nagpagamit siya sa mga yun.
"I would like to thank him now after reading his message, which I would like also to thank him. And please send my regards to Gary.
"Sabi ko nga, 'Don't you worry, you did not have anything to do with this. Only, siguro din, dala ng pagkakataon, e, nagamit ka, yung ganun. Siguro hindi mo rin kagustuhan yung nangyaring yun.'"
STRENGTH TO CARRY ON. Tinanong din ng Startalk si Gary kung nakausap na ba niya ulit si Mang Lauro matapos ibaba ng Supreme Court ang desisyon na i-acquit si Hubert at ang mga kasama nito.
"Not yet," sagot ni Gary.
"I'm leaving for the States on Sunday [January 9]. When I come back, it would be a great, great thing to see both parties, you know, and to really say, 'Listen, it's not over yet but it's a step closer to where we're supposed to be."
May mensahe rin si Gary para kay Mang Lauro.
"Sir, my prayers are with you. Sir, that's the best I can give you.
"And I think that's the best thing that sets us free, because knowing the truth is what sets us free.
"God is your God. He's gonna give you the strength to carry on.
"And He's gonna give you the strength to receive the provisions that He still has for you.
"So, God bless you, Sir."
