AN OPEN LETTER TO THE FILIPINO COMMUNITY BY GIL UY ZALSOS, THE ONE AND ONLY BROTHER OF JOEL UY ZALSOS

AN OPEN LETTER TO THE FILIPINO COMMUNITY BY GIL UY ZALSOS, THE ONE AND ONLY BROTHER OF JOEL UY ZALSOS thumbnail

It has been on the news since January 5th when Joel Uy Zalsos met his untimely death here in Calgary after arriving on December 7, 2010 from the Philippines to rejoin his wife who has worked as a nanny.

Thru the popular site, Facebook, I was able to get hold of Joel’s brother from Iligan Ctiy, Philippines, Gil Uy Zalsos and managed to get an open letter of appeal to our fellow Filipinos for moral and financial support.

Please read thru this open letter and any help extended will definitely go along way for the Zalsos family especially to bring back Joel’s body to his homeland, the Philippines.

“Thank you Connie for your concern and offer to publish in Pinoy Times of what happened to my only brother ( Joel Uy Zalsos ).

You know, he is my only treasure when both our parents died when we were small boys. My brother is very2x special to me as we survive to live without parents but with the guidance of our relatives.  He is my inspiration when I was young and I owe to him of what I have accomplished as a man or a better person today.  Until now, I cannot accept of what had happened to him and I don’t know when is the time to heal this wounds. I think it is forever.

Maybe I will ask help from our God Almighty to give me enough strength to overcome this problem. It really hurts me because he is a very good brother to me as well as a very kind man to all of my relatives and our friends.

I would like to ask help to all the Filipino people in Calgary or in whole Canada to help us bring Joel to our home place in Cagayan De Oro,  Philippines thru your financial, moral and spiritual support.
Help us also find the criminal so that justice will prevail.

Thru your help this will help us heal the wounds.
GIL ZALSOS
