Andre Michael P. Medina

I received a distressing letter from Ma. Aileen M. Ramon this morning:

To the dearest friends of Andre Michael P. Medina,

I am writing on behalf of the Medina family to humbly request your sincerest support and participation in this depressing time of need that has befall on us.

On the night of November 26, 2007, Andre was in a vehicular accident causing widespread injuries to his body and most unfortunately to his head resulting him to be in a comatose state. It was only the following day that we learned of the accident when the local county hospital contacted us. According to the police, Andre was on his way to Mentor, OH when the trailer truck in front of his car started to skid and eventually fell over. It was lucky to some extent that the container itself had only trampled the passenger side of the vehicle. If not, Andre would not have been able to survive.

In this, we ask that you join us in praying for Andre's return to normal health and if there are those who wish to partake any special message to him, please do send it to this address,
mmedinaramon (at) aol (dot) com, and we would gladly read it to him. As those who are familiar with Andre, he has always valued and to some extent been more attuned towards his friends and acquaintances so know that he would greatly appreciate hearing from all of you.

Thank you so much in advance and we all hope for the best for everyone.

Yours Sincerely,

Ma. Aileen M. Ramon

Andre, and his partner, Jenny PeƱas, were the two behind the cover design of PGS for issues 1 to 3. They left for abroad earlier this year, Jenny to pursue her career options, Andre to attend a relative's wedding. They were supposed to return mid-2008, taking a hiatus from designing the PGS cover in the meantime. I think you'll agree with me that they've done great work on the PGS cover. I hope Ma. Aileen M. Roman doesn't mind me posting her letter on the PGS blog, but Andre has made friends among PGS readers and contributors, so I'd like to let them know about his situation. Please share your prayers and best wishes for him and his family.

Andre, hope you get well soon.

This is a tragic and unexpected turn of events, and I wish Andre the best of recoveries possible.
