VWBro [Atty.] Godofredo 'Boy' Senires Jr., a Past DDGM of MD NCR-E and our immediate Past Assistant Grand Secretary, dropped his working tools just past midnight. To him and his family, we owe a lot.
He was many a time our Assistant Grand Secretary and he served us well in that post. He was diligent in checking out the Minutes of the Stated Meetings of Lodges, even though his honorarium was not enough for his fare (Kawit, Cavite) and his lunch. It was for the love of Masonry.
To me, his defining moment was when he tendered his courtesy resignation to our incumbent Grand Master, as Kuya Boy was endorsed by his Lodge, Andres Bonifacio #199, for the position of Junior Grand Warden.
In the meantime, he got sick. When VWBro Gilbert Pazcoguin and I visited him at the Makati Med, he was even boasting that he would attend the ANCOM in Davao and that he already had a ticket. Some of us even dreamt that this would come through -- that he would be wheeled into the plenary hall, just so he could affirm the veracity of the Certification which he prepared after all.
The GAOTU thought otherwise. I am sure, nevertheless, that he would be there with us at the plenary hall, joining us even as we toast for Brotherly Love, Relief and TRUTH! Thus will eventually be Kuya Boy's shining moment!
Just spoke to his daughter, Gladys, who informed me that the wake starts tonight, at the St. Peters Chapels, Quezon Ave. His body will be cremated on April 30, 2011. Please pass.
