I cannot help but to cry while doing this tribute to honor our beloved father.
Just by looking at his pictures which manifest such joy and happiness,
my tears keep on flowing like streams and rivers
and heart is grieving like a lamenting event of great catastrophe.
My parents were even planning to make their first hajj (pilgrimage)
to the Ka’aba in al-Makkah, Saudi Arabia this year (2012),
all of their documents were nearly complete,
instead Allah (God) decided to invite my father immediately.
Wherever you may be, dad, we wanted you to know that your optimal success
is how you brought and guided us (your wife and children)
toward the state of success we are living now.
May Allah and our angels guide your journey to the eternal sanctuary
and blissfully haven. Farewell, for now.
Nazir Marohombsar Adiong
August 20, 1957 – January 29, 2012
54 years old
After coming back to Ankara last Friday (Jan. 27) in the afternoon, Uncle Robin (my father’s elder brother) sent me a message that my father was rushed to the hospital because his heart stops beating. I only got the chance to read his message on Saturday morning. The doctors from ER were able to revive him. However, his brain and internal organs were directly affected because of 20 minutes of no oxygen and unstable blood circulation.
While he was quasi-unconscious on Saturday night, he was able to listen to all of the people who were there and talked to him including my mother and my sisters. Until, I was the last who talked through a mobile phone, and my mother told me that his tears fell and he finally bids goodbye. I will miss you, dad, wherever you are. In many years to come, we will be reunited when our time in this world had ended.
In memory of my Dad
i will remember all u taught me
i’m hurt…… but won’t be sad,
cos he’ll send me down the answers
and he’ll always be my DAD:(

Dearest friend Nassef Manabilang Adiong
, Please accept my heartfelt sympathy. I never expected that this will happened, since our last talked about him. : C Wherever tito may be, God will always be with him. I, with my family (im sure all your friends too), will pray for tito. He may not any more be physically present, but he will always be alive in the hearts of many people who loves him. Continue to shine, like the stars that shine in the darkest night. We will always be by your side.
Prof. Dr. Clarita R. Carlos
Nassef, my heart bleeds for you as I feel deeply the sense of loss and helplessness you feel knowing your father was dying and you were so far away. I always believe that like my mother who has passed on, your father will also still be with you on another level. Remember, the amount of energy in this earth is constant all the time, never diminishes… Warm hugs to comfort you…

Dear Dr. Adiong; Our condolences to you and your family. Life is always like that for all of us. As it has a beginning, life has its end too. We all are from Him and to Him is our return. It was good you were able to talk to him; he passed away happy when he heard your voice. He must be very proud of you. In a sense, as he was an acccomplished man, he must have left you the torch to accomplish more not only for your family and relatives but in the service of higher ideals including the principles he believes in. Thank you also for keeping in touch and for sharing your success and moment of grief. I’d known too many friends and colleagues who I’ve seen their potentials and talents. You are one of them who stand out almost singularly. Good luck and our du’a to your late father and may Allah bless him. Best.
Prof. Dr. Nuri Yurdusev
I am very sorry to hear the sad news. Hope you soon pull yourself and get back to your normal life. Take care

Dear Nassef, I am so sorry to hear this news. I lost my mom a year ago. So I sincerely understand how you feel. This is a great loss. I console myself by cherishing the good memories we have had with my mom and believing that one day we will meet again. I advise you to do the same. May Allah rest his soul in peace and give you strength. My very best wishes.
Prof. Dr. Yasin Ceylan
Dear Nassef, I am exrtremely sorry for your father’s death. I can imagine how much you are affected by the event. You also know as a beleiving Muslim that he has returned to his Lord, Allah. The only thing that we can do for him is to ask God for mercy and forgiveness. Love.
