VIDEO: ZSA ZSA PADILLA ACAPELLA AT DOLPHY’S NECROLOGICAL SERVICE

For the past twenty three years Zsa Zsa Padilla was with Dolphy. She may not be Dolphy’s first but she’s the last. She’s with Dolphy when Dolphy breathed his last at 8:34 p.m. July 10, 2012.

Dolphy’s long-time partner Zsa Zsa Padilla talked about the comedian’s battle with COPD for the last six or eight years and how his ordeal brought their whole family together.

“Kahit pala ang mga anak ni Dolphy ay nanggaling sa iba ibang Nanay ay pwede naman pala mag kaisa.”- Zsa Zsa Padilla.

Zsa Zsa Padilla thanked those who were there for Dolphy while he was still battling his illness. She also recalled how Dolphy was as a partner.

“Come to me all of you  who are weary and I will give you rest.” Dolphy’s wish to go home was granted.

I was crying when I was watching this video. Partly because Zsa Zsa Padilla’s A capella’s  rendition of “Through the years” is very touching and also because like you and millions of others  I will be missing Mang Dolphy’s brand of comedy both on TV and the movies.
Dolphy comes a long way from being a butong pakwan and peanut vendor to becoming Philippines King of Comedy. I hope the government will give him the National Artist Award. This is a personal opinion, I believe his endorsement to FPJ cost him the National Artist Award during President Gloria Macapagal- Arroyo’s term. Napulitika. It would have been nice if he got this recognition when he was still alive. Ika nga aanhin pa ang damo if patay na ang kabayo. On second thought, I think his children and partner Zsa Zsa Padilla will appreciate it still. So go lang ng go ibigay na ang nararapat kay Mang Dolphy.
When Dolphy would mouth his wish to go home as he remained confined in the intensive care unit, Eric Quizon said his family knew the wish would be granted three-fold. “My dad kept on saying, ‘Uwi na ako.’ That was the phrase he kept on saying sa aming lahat, ‘uwi na ako.’ His wish was granted.
“Today, we brought him home to Marina (their private residence), and then we brought him here to his family, his Kapamilya, and now he’s home with his Creator,” he said.
This statement made by Eric made me cry, that is exactly what my mom uttered just before she had a heart attack.  “Uwi na ako”. I couldn’t stop myself from crying while making this post. 
Alam ko dapat tumigil na ako sa pag-iyak dahil ang Diyos natin na nasa Langit na ang nangangalaga ngayon kay Mang Dolphy at sa Tatay at Nanay ko.

Dolphy dies at 83. 

15 days short to his 84th birthday.

Dolphy, The Comedy King passed away this evening,at 8:34 P.M., Tuesday, July 10, 2012 at the Makati Medical Center due to multiple organ failure, secondary to complications brought about by severe pneumonia, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, and Acute Renal Failure.

Dolphy’ s real name is Rodolfo Vera Quizon. He was born in Pampanga and was raised in Tondo.

 

I really feel sad. He gave us so much joy and laughter in times of trouble. I am really glad to have met him personally in Hong Kong on one of our summer vacations. I remember him as the ever smiling Mang Dolphy. He is now with my Dad and Mom in heaven. I bet they will be laughing together in heaven. Heaven will be a much happier place now with Mang Dolphy around.

Dolphy came from a very humble beginnings, and his admiration of comedians Pugo and Tugo influenced him to be a stage performer. His first screen name was Golay, and he used this name for his first movie with Fernando Poe Sr., the father of his friend the late action king Fernando Poe Jr.

Dolphy started his first career in a TV Show, Buhay Artista, at ABS-CBN with a talent fee of One thousand pesos. That was soon followed by many shows and movies.

Dolphy had 18 children to six different women. His last partner was actress Zsa Zsa Padilla.
  

The Filipino people will miss you! You have given so much Joy in our hearts.
Rest in peace, Mang Dolphy.

Let us Pray for Dolphy

Let us pray for the fast recovery and complete healing of Dolphy. 

Dolphy, the Comedy King, father, loving partner of Zsa Zsa Padilla is in the hospital  right now, fighting for his life. I hope we could say a little prayer for his recovery. 

Dolphy, who will mark his 84th birthday on July 25, 2012 was rushed to the hospital 13 days ago due to a chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), described as a “progressive illness.”

Eric Quizon said that his father had been in and out of consciousness, but he is still fighting and he hopes that we will still have him with them.

In an earlier interview with a newspaper, Eric Quizon said the family had not made big plans for his coming birthday because it all depends on his health.

My dad and I together with my uncle, aunt, cousins used to go to
Hongkong during holy week. One summer, we fortunately bumped into
Dolphy, Zsa Zsa, Vandolph and his two daughters with Zsa Zsa Padilla.
Yes, I met Dolphy personally in Hongkong. He is very kind and won’t show any signs of pagkayamot or inis when a lot of Filipina Fans asked to be photograph alongside him, unlike his son Vandolph na isang bakol na ang mukha and even yelled at me when I took his picture with my dad. ” Bilisan mo”.

Like my Papa, Dolphy has gray eyes, both of them are kind and  they always have a ready  smile to everyone.

Dolphy made us laugh all these years. And I hope he will get well soon.
