Julpha Villa, RizalTech Arnis athlete, passed away yesterday morning, June 19, 2018.
On March 14, 2017, knowing the dreaded disease that struck her, together with Dean Reydora Flordeliza and Director Norie Larosa, we visited her in the hospital in Cagayan De Oro City where she was confined to confer upon the degree of Bachelor of Science in Physical Education. In her condition at the time she would not be able to fly back to Manila to attend the commencement exercises that was to be held in May of that year. Here are some of the pictures and a video of the event.
Julpha was a great athlete, winning for the RizalTech numerous gold medals in the competitions where she took part as member of the Arnis Team.
This one fight was her last. It was a fight for her very own life. She fought well up to the last moment, but she lost the battle, like we will all do. But that is how we will win.
To conquer death we only have to die.
So long champ.
