Sabi ni Lynn sa post, kaya daw nila ginawan ng flash mob sa saliw ng awiting "Every Praise" ang huling lamay ni Teejay ay dahil ito raw ang palaging pinapakinggang worship song ng anak noong nakaratay pa ito sa ospital.

Nakalagay naman sa post ni Teejay sa Facebook noong November 12, 2018 ang mga salitang, “Can’t wait to dance again… both with and without fire…”

Sabi ni Lynn sa caption, “This was my son TJ’s last post in his Facebook account, Nov. 12, 2018.

“So, here goes the story behind the 'Every Praise' dance number at my son TJ’s Celebration of Life.

"In the hospital, I would see him with earplugs and he would just be teary-eyed or crying.

“So, I asked him, ‘Why?’

“He said, he is listening to praise and worship songs, and there is this one song that he really wants to choreograph and will dance when he gets well so he can give glory to God.

“And I would see his hands while lying down doing some choreography.

“And one time, I played that song and I danced in front of him, ‘Akala mo di kita pinapanood ha. I watch you and see your hands doing the choreography, and we will dance that pag pwede ka na sumayaw.’

“And he told me, ‘Parang flash mob yan Ma, ang maganda dyan yung marami talaga ang sasayaw.’

“And days before he passed, during his PT session (we never thought it would be his last), I told him, ‘You want to show us (me, his nurse, and therapist) your dance so that I can video it and so you don’t forget the steps later on and mapag-aralan na rin namin so we can all dance with you.’

“So he sat down slowly coz he was in pain, and asked his nurse, ‘Naka-on na ba ang video ni Mama?’

“I said, ‘Yes, go dance na.’

“And while showing us the dance steps he was smiling even though he was in pain.

“I thank the Lord for giving me wisdom to take a video of him while dancing and gave me the thought to dance on the last night of TJ’s wake to give glory to God for blessing us and allowing us to have TJ for 37 years.

“And when TJ closed his eyes to be with the Lord, I pictured all the angels welcoming him to His Kingdom and he danced with them to the tune of 'Every Praise.'

“Ans the song goes, ‘God my Savior, God my healer, God my deliverer, yes, He is! Yes, He is!

“Yes, Jesus is TJ’s Lord and Savior.

“Yes, TJ is healed! Healed not here on earth, but healed in heaven.

“No more pain, no more worries, no more tears, no more sickness!

“Enjoy God’s loving embrace my son!

“You are dancing now in the streets of gold!

“I love and miss you TJ!”
