Doc Adolph's 4th Death Anniversary

Four years ago, on November 30, Doc Adolph, an outdoor enthusiast who gave up his medical career to pursue his hobby and love for outdoors, fell to his death in a 60-meter deep vertical cave in Brgy. Gaas, Balamban, Cebu. And last Sunday we visited the area together with late Doc Adolph's co-speleologists and co-IMS (Inter-Mountaineering Society) members to pay tribute on his 4th Death Anniversary.

Doc's photo from a friend's file. Although I haven't met him back when he's still alive because I joined IMS a year after his death, I pay tribute to this bloke who had left a great knowledge about outdoor skills to his fellow mountaineers and spelunkers. He shared everything he knew, he was not selfish. And that knowledge has been passed down even to the newest generation of IMS. I'm thankful that IMS had Doc and I'm greatful to be a part of IMS.

On the left side is where the opening of the vertical cave is located. A group picture after recalling some memories with the late Doc Adolph and the lighting of candles.

We cooked Pansit Bihon and Pospas and gathered all the children for the feeding program which includes games that is done yearly on Doc's death anniv. c/o of his family from the States.

Some got big smiles, some are shy, others giddy, but I know deep inside these kiddos' hearts that they really enjoyed and they are happy for the small things that we had brought to them that day. And I hope I can attend this activity next year. And I'm happy to say that IMS people are really united through thick and thin. 

P.S. Thanks to Erwin Castillon and to Gutchi Gutierrez for the photos. Thanks for reading! :)
