RIP Boyet Gravino 1983-2013


We lost a good friend and major supporter of Balikbayod—Returning Wave this past month. Boyet Gravino (pictured center in the red shirt) was a major supporter during the founding of the program in 2008 and continued to help in the charting of 2 program locations, often corresponding with the locations to keep up on their needs. He will be greatly missed for his tremendous sense of humor and his way with the kids. Thank you Boyet, for all you did for us, you will always live in our hearts.
