Arnel Cowley on his plans after wife Isabel Granada's passing: "At this stage talaga, I haven't really thought of anything much, except for the fact that my wife has just passed away. And it hurts talaga, you know, it's so sudden. And she never said goodbye."


Ngayong naihatid na sa kanyang huling hantungan si Isabel Granada, kabilang sa mga plano ng mister niyang si Arnel Cowley ay ayusin ang ilang naiwan ng yumaong actress-singer.

Pahayag ni Arnel, “At the moment, I’m not really in a hurry to go back to Australia.

“I have a few things to do here in the Philippines. 

“Obviously, we did have business together, my wife and I.

“I wanna try and continue if I can. 

“But, at this stage talaga, I haven’t really thought of anything much, except for the fact that my wife has just passed away. 

“And it hurts talaga, you know, it’s so sudden.

“And she never said goodbye.”

Isang networking business ang negosyo nina Arnel at Isabel.

Sabi pa ng Fil-Aussie businessman, “It’s doing well. The company is just two years and we’ve just joined last year. 

“It was actually doing well. She’s very excited about doing the business.

“Siyempre, I told her, ‘We have to do something. We can’t just rely on showbiz, you don’t know when will you stop.’”

Nakapanayam ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) si Arnel sa second night ng wake ni Isabel noong Biyernes, November 10, sa Sanctuario de San Jose, Greenhills, San Juan City.

CIVIL. “Civil” ang deskripsiyon ni Arnel sa relasyon nito sa ex-husband ni Isabel na si Jericho Aguas at sa anak nila ng aktres na si Hubert Aguas.

Pahayag niya, “Siyempre, to be honest, we’re pretty civil naman, e. 

“Sometimes we have lunch... I mean, all have moved on.

“Obviously, she’s moved on with me, Jericho has moved on as well. 

"Pero obviously, they have a son together. The communication never stopped."

Ayon pa kay Arnel, “Just like me and my ex-wife... I have two kids with my ex-wife.

“So, my ex-wife and I communicate only because of the fact that we have kids. 

“And we only communicate about our kids, just like with Isabel.

“But certainly, difficult time for both parties siyempre.

“Pero me, the current husband, I’m taking it a lot harder.”

SURPRISE FOR ISABEL. Ngayong Pasko, may sorpresa raw sana si Arnel kay Isabel.

“We’re planning to spend Christmas with my kids here in the Philippines. 

“But then, we were gonna surprise her with a trip all the way to Bangkok.”

Itutuloy pa ba nila ng kanyang mga anak ang Bangkok trip kahit wala na si Isabel?

Sagot niya agad, “I really don’t know. I can’t answer that question...

“It’s gonna be a tough road for me.

“Like I’ve said, not only I’ve lost a wife, I’ve lost a friend, but I’ve also lost a family.

“It’s just her and I here talaga. 

“All my family are in Australia… parati kaming kasama talaga.

“The last almost two years, I based myself here.

“Prior to that, we lived in Australia about one year. 

“But then, we decided to come back here for her career naman, e. It was more of a career move.

“Eventually, I had to sacrifice a lot of things to live here. 

“But, at the moment, I’m living here for the last almost three years. 

“We did have plans in going back [to Australia] eventually, but…”

FOUR YEARS. Patuloy pa niya, “We’ve actually been together for four years.

“Marriage-wise, we’re actually celebrating our second year anniversary in Qatar when it all happened. 

“So, that four years we’ve been together is actually very, very special and memorable one.

“I wish it was a little bit more. 

“But siyempre, I guess that was life is about. 

“But I have to try to push on with my life somehow, pero it’s gonna be a tough road for me ahead talaga.

“Hopefully, I get through this.”

Punung-puno ng pagmamahal at pangungulila ang Instagram messages ni Arnel sa mga larawan nila ni Isabel na magkasama.

Sabi niya tungkol dito, “I remember my wife as a loving person.

“Since we’ve been together, we were actually inseparable talaga. 

“Wherever she is, I’m there. Wherever I am, she’s always there. 

“But the thing that always struck me about my wife is the fact that she’s very loving, she’s very accommodating to people, not only the fact that she adored kids as well.  

“And all in all, Isabel is a package to me talaga. Kasi, she does not have any bad bone in her body. 

“Although, there were some things that went on in her life na she kept it to herself.  

“But you never heard her say anything bad towards anyone talaga.

“I always remember my wife as the most beautiful and caring person.

“She’ll be very, very missed by a lot of people. 

“And she will be irreplaceable for me talaga.”

ISABEL’S COLLAPSE. Muli namang ikinuwento ni Arnel kung ano ang mga kaganapan bago nag-collapse si Isabel noong October 24 sa Doha, Qatar.

Ito ay para linawin na rin ang iba’t ibang espekulasyon tungkol sa nangyari sa actress-singer.

May mga usap-usapan kasing nagpi-perform daw si Isabel sa isang show nang bigla itong mag-collapse. May mga nagsasabi namang nagdi-deliver ito ng speech sa isang program.

Ayon kay Arnel, “Basically, what happened, we were actually at the venue just talking to some fans. She wasn’t performing. 

“I know she complained about during that day was a headache, a simple headache lang.

“It was actually in the morning when we woke up. She just had actually a little bit of a headache.

“So, I said to her, ‘Do you wanna take something, like a Paracetamol or something?’

“You know, she’s always had headaches before, pero not constant naman and all she takes is, like, Panadol or something like that.

“But anyway, she decided not to take any...

“Pero she was healthy, clean-living person, my wife.”

Ayon kay Arnel, may iniinda na si Isabel bago pa ito mahimatay.

“She said was ‘nahihilo ako’ and then she collapsed.

“Actually, I thought she just fainted lang. 

“So, therefore, what I did was I tried to wake her up.

“But when I saw her aura changed, that’s when I got worried.

“The eyes rolled up, the face changed... totally unresponsive.”

SURGERY IS NOT AN OPTION. Nang ma-comatose si Isabel, may mga kumalat na balitang nagre-respond ito kapag kinakausap.

Pero pagtanggi ni Arnel, “That’s actually false.

“I actually saw the news that said she’s responding by hand gesture, actually false. 

“Ever since she collapsed, she never responded again.

“The only response that I had from my wife is, when she collapsed on Thursday, when I was talking to her and saying to her that, ‘A lot of people are waiting for you, a lot of people are praying for you. When you’re ready to wake up, just wake up.”

Binubulungan daw niya nang madalas ang asawa at sinasabihan ng “I love you.”

Patuloy niya, “When I said those words, that’s when I saw a tear come out of her eye.”

Wala na raw surgery na isinagawa kay Isabel nang ma-comatose ito.

Sabi ni Arnel, “No, the surgery wasn’t an option. 

“A massive hemorrhage on the brain talaga. 

“Actually, an operation would have killed her instantly.”

Patuloy niya, “You know, sometimes I blame myself, sometimes I think that she should have mentioned to me about the history.

“Recently, I just found out that five members or four members of the family passed away because of aneurysm, including her father.”

Wala raw alam si Arnel kung sumailalim na sa ilang tests si Isabel para sa mga idinadaing nitong headache.

Madalas bang atakihin ng sakit ng ulo ang asawa?

Sagot ni Arnel, “Not very often, every now and then.

“Maybe when she’s overwork or... during tapings? Maybe. 

“Or when she doesn’t get enough sleep.

“Most of the time, she seems okay.”

Nai-cremate na ang mga labi ni Isabel kahapon, November 12.
