Gary Valenciano recollects last encounter with Master Showman German Moreno

Inalala ni Gary Valenciano ang mga panahong nagsisimula pa lang siya sa showbiz kung saan hindi daw nag-atubiling tulungan siya ng nag-iisang Master Showman German "Kuya Germs" Moreno. Kaya naman labis ang kanyang nadaramang kalungkutan sa pagpanaw nito noong nakaraang Biyernes, January 8.


Hanggang ngayon, may mga artista pa ring nagbabahagi sa kanilang social media accounts ng mga masasaya nilang alaala kasama ang nag-iisang Master Showman na si German "Kuya Germs" Moreno.

Pumanaw si Kuya Germs, isa sa haligi ng local showbiz, noong madaling-araw ng Biyernes, January 8, sa edad na 82.

Kahapon, January 10, si Gary Valenciano naman ang nagkuwento sa kanyang Instagram sa huling araw na nagkita at nagkausap sila ni Kuya Germs.

Ibinahagi nito sa naturang photo-sharing website ang pagkikita nila noong November 4, 2015.

Saad ni Mr. Pure Energy, "My life has been fortunate to have people who have supported me from the start.

"But rarely will one come across the way Kuya Germs supported the artists he believed in.

"He didn't only end up supporting just a few of my projects but he always made sure to extend his hand of help and support for almost all my projects since I started 31 yrs ago.

"I don't know if there will ever be another human being who can ever compare to the passion and love this man had for the artists in entertainment.

"I had this moment with him last Nov 4, 2015. He had just come from therapy. It was just him and me for just a few minutes.

"He asked me why I wanted to come see him. I apologized for not being able to see him any earlier since his close call in Jan.

"And I told him I just wanted to check on someone who has been there for me from the start."

"MY FRIEND." Kasunod na ikinuwento ng ASAP host ang naging takbo ng pag-uusap nila.

Patuloy rin ang pagpupugay ni Gary sa kabaitan ng tinagurian niyang "my friend."

"I said I wanted to thank him for being so consistent in his ways.

"He smiled briefly and then put his hand over his lips and wept silently; as if to show a sign of gratitude that I've never forgotten all he's done for me.

"Then I made my way to sit by him and make kwento about my children who he also was quite fond of. I truly savored this moment.

"Here was a man who unlike others who have always introduced me to the public before or after a performance, would always complete the introduction with the words 'my friend.'"

Sa huli, sinabi ni Gary na hinding-hindi makakalimutan ng mga tao sa industriya ang mga naging ambag ni Kuya Germs; at patuloy niyang mamahalin ito kahit na nasa kabilang bahagi na siya ng mundo.

"Yes, Kuya Germs, you were the last of a breed the entertainment industry will always need.

"From once being a janitor to forever being a master showman...yes so much did change.

"Yet through it all, that which kept you dear to us was the one thing we're glad never did change; your heart.

"From the bottom of ours, Kuya Germs, we say thank you. We thank God for you.

"We bid you farewell. And I say, I love you... my friend. I always have and I always will."
