Professor William Chow‚Äôs assistant, Manny Dela Cruz, died on June 27, 2008.  He was a friend and my sincere condolences to his family.  Manny was a very caring and humble individual.  He will be missed by a lot of us that knew him.  God Bless.

I'm sorry to read of his passing.  I only met him once at a Gathering of the Eagles Kenpo seminar in Las Vegas.  He carried the room with his inspirational teaching style.
