Utmost condolences for your loss. I am glad that he passed with good numbers on his side.

best,

Sorry for your loss.  This will undoubtedly be felt world wide.

The foundational members are leaving us.  Don't forget what they gave us, and pass it down to your children, nephews and nieces!

Instead of mourning his passing I celebrate the accomplishments and the generosity of SGM Cacoy.  His contributions to the field of Filipino martial arts is unparalleled!  Undoubtedly he will be missed among those who were closest to him as well as those who had the privilege of seeing his skills over the decades .  Thank you SGM Cacoy for your years of profound wisdom and insights into the deepest realms of Filipino warrior traditions.

Salamat
