I grew up with you. Actually singing in the same concerts that Vicor and Blackgold put together for all their artists, with you. I had no idea then that I was singing with one who would become a true LEGEND. The Total Entertainer, the funny, always down-to-earth guy who was always humble and in the forty years I’ve known you, never, ever changed or let success go to your head. I hated when you would make green jokes but loved that they made people laugh. You were a true gem of a talent, and person, dearest Kuya Rico. We and the whole entertainment industry have just been turned upside down by your passing. Thank you for being so sweet and loving to me. Daddy loved you and I know you loved him too and made him laugh, so thank you also for that. Mahal kita, Kuya. Salamat sa sinabi mo not just once na I had β€œone of the prettiest faces.” Muntik na akong maniwala pero mukhang seryoso ka naman. Huwag masyadong bastos ang jokes sa taas ha Kuya baka ihagis ka ni Lord pababa hala! Seriously, we will never be the same...we miss you already. Rest in peace, the great RICO J. PUNO. Our most loving and deepest condolences to your family. May God give them strength during this painful time. I will miss you dearly. I love you.

I first met Sir Rico J. Puno in 1977 or 78, when my Mom would take me along in Impierno Club (yup that was the name) where they performed. Tindi nya kumanta at grabe na rin yung mga jokes nya kahit bawal ako doon eh napanood ko pa rin sya. Isa sya sa mga hinangaan kong Soul Artist sa Pinas. Unique, powerful, raspy voice, that caught my attention for sure! Kasama rin namin sya ni Mama nung unang lipad namin sa US in June 1985 and we performed with him in Los Angeles. I’m deeply saddened na wala na sya, but mostly honoured to have met him, shared the stage with him, laugh and share dirty jokes with him, and sit at the Hurados table with him. Sir, marami kaming sumunod sa yapak mo. At di kita malilimutan. May you rest in God’s peace πŸ’”πŸ™πŸΌ
