Limang taon bago siya pumanaw ay nakagawa na ng kanyang last will and testament ang writer-director na si Francis Xavier Pasion.
Ito ay isinulat ni Direk Francis nung bisperas ng kanyang 33rd birthday noong February 7, 2011, habang nasa Cenacle Retreat House, sa may Quezon City.
Ang bahagi ng last will and testament ni Direk Francis ay ipinost sa Facebook ng kaibigan niyang si Cesar Evangelista, isang film director at former magazine editor.
Narito ang excerpt ng last will and testament ni Direk Francis:
“IF I DIE A SUDDEN, UNEXPECTED DEATH, then grieve, but do not grieve for long.
“I myself do not ever fear death.
“I know and I have always known that death is but like waking to a more peaceful reality, the reality that this life is just an illusion and the next is the real life of a true peace and happiness.
“I am with my Creator now so save your tears and save yourself the trouble of thinking of many regrets.
“I have lived a full life and I have affected yours in one way or the other, please pass on this spirit of love and generosity to others. That will make, or my soul very happy.
“And your soul as well.”
Sumakabilang-buhay si Direk Francis noong March 5, Sabado, dahil sa cardiac arrest. Siya ay 38 years old.
Si Direk Francis ang direktor ng mga Kapamilya teleserye na Princess and I, My Binondo Girl, Sabel, at Nathaniel.
Ang huli niyang TV project ay ang On The Wings of Love.
Siya rin ang direktor ng critically-acclaimed indie films na Jay at Bwaya.
