Luisito Lestones (Ka Luis), suffered a couple of strokes in 2018 and 2019 that made him wheelchair-bound. According to science, there was only a slight chance that he could walk again. But he believed that if he goes back to the Philippines he would walk, and maybe even run, again. With the help of a nephew-friend named Ben. Ben had a devasting stroke many years back that left him almost paralyzed from the waist down. Poor moneyed Ben couldn’t afford to hire physical therapists or pay for massages, so he did self-therapy. By the grace of Our Lord Almighty, and his strong determination, Ben was able to walk again, almost was back to normal. Ka Luis believed he could do the same. And Ben would be his coach. So, they talked and devised a treatment plan.

Ka Luis and I started talking about selling their home in mid-February, 2020. He and his wife Conchita (my sister) had realized he would be needing money for his treatments and subsistence even though they have a big house in the Philippines. When they made the decision to leave Canada for good COVID 19 hadn’t reared its ugly head yet in any parts of the world, except China where it originated from, but hid to the public. COVID19 travel restrictions were imposed almost worldwide in March, 2020.

Their house finally sold and they moved to an apartment in June 1. COVID 19 showed no sign of slowing down. The move to the apartment, which they thought was a nursing home made them miserable. The husband who couldn’t walk and wife who had a diminished memory made trips a few times to the consulate, bank, and a relative, to ask for help. They were like two tops spinning on the ground which only way is down after they stopped turning.

They never lost their courage and both hoped they would be able to leave soon and waited. The news came out if they are Philippine passport holders, they will be able to leave. They were ecstatic and called the travel agency that helped them before with their travels. Ka Luis and his wife had planned to go the travel agency that would help them get a visa on Monday, August 24. But Ka Luis didn’t feel good and got sick the following day, Tuesday, August 25.

Born and raised in the Philippines, Ka Luis was the son of Jose and Victoria, farmers from Masbate. He immigrated to Canada in the 70s with a fiancé visa. My sister Conchita, she immigrated to Canada with a seamstress visa. After they got married, Ka Luis worked in the textile industry. Ka Luis eventually retired with Wilson Auto Electric Limited. They weren’t blessed with any children so they adopted quite a few.

Ka Luis and my sister Conchita were one of those immigrants that gave back to the family and country that gave them so much. Between the two of them, they had adopted and petitioned 17 pairs of husbands and wives, some with four or more children. It won’t be surprising that after these couples adopted their own relatives, that the number could reach up a hundred, by now.
But in the end, it was only Ka Luis and his wife Conchita who would face the final curtain. I know COVID 19 was a monster to challenge. But there are other forms of communication if the heart was in it.

May you rest in peace Ka Luis. I did my best to help you realize your dream. But my best wasn’t good enough. Worry not for we will take care of your wife, our sister. She will be taken cared of, rightfully and lovingly.
