On my road to self-discovery I decided to visit my friend's grave, Franklin Ruddy Vilorio, for some closure. During that journey I was very nervous and anxious. I didn't know what to do or say. I felt numb and I felt like I choke up during the process. Once I found his grave I felt so many emotions, especially anger, that I honestly don't know what was the right reaction for the situation. I didn't know if I did it right or if I just wasted my time. One thing I knew is that I felt a little bit of peace, because I know where he's at and I know he's resting in peace. He's resting right next to his buddy and both are watching over each other and that makes me feel good.
 
Until this day I don't know if I have really dealt with the situation. It was an overwhelming experience and honestly all I feel is anger and frustration. But now my question is, what's next for me?, What's the next step in my road to recovery and letting go? I don't know what's next, but I do know I need to learn how to deal with it. I know it's going to be a long road and I even know it's not going to be easy, but I do hope I havesupport, love, and care throughout this process. I just want to learn how to deal with it and just let go of all this feelings. I need to find peace in my life and a new meaning. I'm praying to God and begging for that to happen, so Lord please help me for a new beginning and a new journey to happiness. 
 
SGT. FRANKLIN RUDDY VILORIO....
REST IN PEACE BROTHER IN ARMS, I WILL ALWAYS MISS YOU.
MAY THE ANGELS AND GOD BE WITH YOU. MUCH LOVE.
