Dolphy Sees Death is Coming; Says He is Ready to Face His Maker
Dolphy (Rodolfo Vera Quizon Sr. in real life), is currently in critical condition at the Makati Medical Center.
According to his son, Eric Quizon, his father was diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) five years ago.
In his autobiography "Dolphy: Hindi Ko Ito Narating Ng Mag-Isa," Dolphy said he has always been ready to face his Maker.
"The inevitable will come. Kung dumating na ang oras mo, hindi ka na kokontra, wala ka nang magagawa. It's your time. Sabi nga nila, alam mo, 'pag malapit na. You feel it," Dolphy said.
The King of Comedy also revealed that he already bought his own coffin.
"Matagal na itong chismis; I will confirm it. Mayro'n na nga akong kabaong bronze. No'n ko pa kinuha. Isa din ako sa kauna-unahang bumili ng family estate plan sa Loyola Memorial Park sa Marikina," he said.
In his interview with TV Patrol anchor Korina Sanchez on Wednesday night, June 20, Eric said that when Dolphy was diagnosed with COPD he already talked to his children about his last wishes.
"Ito nga noong nalaman niyang mayroon siyang COPD nag-umpisa na siyang kausapin kami. Kumbaga noong time palang na yon, kumbaga inayos na niya lahat yung mga dapat ayusin. So naayos na namin yon," Eric said.
Update: In a brief presscon, Eric said his dad is again suffering from pneumonia. It is the 11th time in 11 months that the Dolphy is fighting the battle, he added.
Let's all pray for Dolphy's recovery. May he continue to put laughter on our faces.
