> From Ogie Diaz, Tado’s Manager:

At nito ngang huling usap namin last Jan. 30 ay may inquiry ako ng guesting niya para sa MMK na isu-shoot sana sa Feb. 12,13,14 sa Baguio.

“Tado, okay ba sa ‘yo sa Baguio ang taping?”

-“Oo naman, boss. Kahit wala pang uwian.”

At ang role sana ni Tado:

Isa siyang konduktor ng bumibiyaheng bus.

  1. ang dami namang pwedeng mamatay na mga salot sa lipunan, bakit ito pang taong ito ang namatay, okey pa naman magpatawa si “Tado” malakas ang sence of humor at nakakaalis ng boredom…pero ganoon talaga ang buhay we don’t know kung kailang tayo aalis…………. as I’m writing this message I remember some of the lyrics of an old song “Send in the Clowns”…., Isn’t it rich? Isn’t it queer? Losing my timing this late in my career. And where are the clowns? There ought to be clowns. well, maybe next year………………sa mga naulila ni Tado at sa mga kaibigang kong SRB……….my sincere Condolence po……………………..1925
