They first met each other in a bus en route to MSU-Main Campus when they were in first year. When was this? In 1961 I guess. They became classmates, roommates and friends.
Until now they are together in the Board of Regents Office of the Secretary: Mr. Datumanong Sarangani as Acting Secretary and Mr. Oscar Barcenas, former BOR Secretary, as a consultant. Still, they are friends.
Can a friendship really last a lifetime? Yes! They have proven it.
Someone says, “Friendship is the highest form of regard between human beings.” Indeed it’s true.
If you don’t have a friend who knows you inside and out, then you miss one of the most wonderful experiences in life.
May you find a friend so true that you can be true to him, even before others you can’t.
And when you find one, thank God. Few discover this amazing gift.
