JUAN SAYS: German Moreno, otherwise known as ‘Kuya Germs’ was finally laid to rest yesterday. Stars poured out to be in his wake to pay their final respects to the man who paved the way for their careers in showbusiness. Truly, Kuya Germs has touched the hearts of many, and he has become an icon, a pillar of the industry that has given him so much more. Our facebook timelines were almost filled with news pertaining to his death. A repost, a short goodbye, a little thank you for paving the way for our favorite stars to shine in that unglamorous industry. But what got our attention was a loving and heart wrenching post from one of our facebook friends who poured his heart out upon somebody’s death.
It was as if his heart was ripped open. We felt for him and he made us think that he must be that close to the departed. Since we met him during our stint in print, we felt that he must be one of those artists that Kuya Germs have helped. His post seemed really personal and we felt his loss. Ganun pala sila ka-close ni Kuya Germs, while all we got was a picture with him during one of those press conferences that we attended. Hindi siya fan, that is for sure. But to speak of the departed in this way tugged our hearts and almost made us cry. We wanted to reach out to this person and condole him on Kuya Germ’s demise, until we read his post again:
Ay sorry naman! Grabe para kay David Bowie pala ang post! Hugot na hugot si Kuya. Close na close sila ni David Bowie! Hollywood! Soshal ka! Sige kuya, sleep na. Pwede ka ng matulog!
