The co-founder of Papemelroti, Bienvenido Alejandro, has passed away Wednesday, May 15. He was 92 years old.
The popular stationery shop announced the unfortunate news on Instagram in a very Papemelroti manner, for which it's loved: positive, buoyant, and full of love.
The papemelroti family sends off our co-founder, our beloved Sir Benny. May he rest in God’s eternal peace ???????? - Bienvenido G. Alejandro August 18, 1926-May 15, 2019 - 'Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master's happiness!' Matt 25:21
"Daddy, I will miss you terribly! You were always my champion when I needed one. You took care of us in many practical ways that we sometimes took for granted. But you were also a dreamer, always young at heart, always enthusiastic and bursting with plans and ideas and projects," read a portion of the message his daughter Patricia Alejandro Paterno wrote on Facebook.
"You were a faithful, loving husband, a wonderful father, and a fun lolo! We rejoice in the hope that we will all be together one day!" She ended her note.
Mr. Alejandro was born on August 18, 1926.
His wake will be at Loyola Commonwealth starting Wednesday night.
Rest in peace. — LA, GMA News
