HASTA kapila na ibalik-balik pagsibya sa radio nga usa na ka dakong masakiton si Iyo Delfin, apan wala gyuy miuli sa iyang tulo ka anak nga tua na manimuyo sa nagkalain-laing mga dapit sa probinsiya sa Sugbo. Dili sab tingali mahitabo nga wala sila makabati sa pagsibya sa radyo kay pinaminaw man ang estasyon DYRN sa tibuok lalawigan.

It had been repeatedly announced over the radio that Iyo Delfin is already a severely sick man, but not one of his three children who are living in different areas of the province of Cebu ever came back home.   It also will not happen that they did not hear the announcement over the radio because the DYRN station is widely listened to all over the province.

Tingali wala lay gustong mouli sa mga anak ni Iyo Delfin, kay pulos man sila nangluod sa ilang amahan. Kay nakigtipon si Iyo Delfin sa laing babaye sukad namatay ang ilang inahan. Ang babaye nabaniog nga dili maayog kaliwat.

Maybe no one among the children of Iyo Delfin wants to come home because all of them have resentments towards their father. Because Iyo Delfin lived with another woman eversince their mother passed away.  The woman was reputed to not have a good lineage.

Taudtaod na nga naglubog si Iyo Delfin sa banig tungod sa iyang sakit nga way klarong unsang sakita. Wala man siya mokonsulta og doktor, bisan og daghan siyag kuwarta. Midangop man lang sa usa ka meriko nga maoy nagtambal kaniya.

It had been a while that Iyo Delfin was  bedridden because of his illness which had no clear diagnosis.  He did not consult a doctor, even if he had plenty of money. He just approached one medicine man who was the one who treated him.

Ang nakapait kay samtang naglubog na si Iyo Delfin sa banig, gibiyaan siya sa iyang kapuyo. Mikuyog kinig laing lalake. Maayo na lang kay dunay usa ka ulitawong guwang nga maoy miatiman kaniya. Si Boloy nga iyang silingan nga wala nay ginikanan. Dili niya kini ig-unsa kay day-o man kini sa maong dapit.

What's really painful was while Iyo Delfin was bedridden, he was abandoned by his live-in partner.  She left with another man. Fortunately, there was an old bachelor who took care of him.   Boloy who is his neighbor, who is already an orphan.  Iyo Delfin was not related to him because Boloy was a stranger to the area.

Sulod sa dugay nga panahon ang pag-atiman ni Boloy kang Iyo Delfin. Siya maoy moluto ug mopakaon kang Iyo Delfin. Siya maoy mopainom og tambal sa tiguwang, mohilot ug maoy mohipos sa mga hugaw ni Iyo Delfin. Sa pag-atiman nahilakip na ang pagdigo kang Iyo Delfin ug ang pagpanglaba sa mga biste niini.
Sulod sa maong panahon wala bisan usa na lang sa mga kadugo ni Iyo Delfin ang mitabang sa pag-alima kaniya. Dili gani manuaw, bisan paglili na lang unta kon unsa na ang iyang kahimtang. Si Boloy ra gayud maoy nag-antos pag-atiman kang Iyo Delfin.

Boloy took care of Iyo Delfin for a long period of time.  He would be the one who would cook and feed Iyo Delfin.  He would give the old man his medicine, would do chiropractic  care and would be the one to clean up Iyo Delfin's waste.   Included in the care is bathing Iyo Delfin and doing his laundry.  Within that period, not even one of Iyo Delfin's relatives helped in taking care of him.  They did not even visit, even to just take a peek on to what his condition was. Only Boloy was the one who sacrificed in taking care of Iyo Delfin.

Hangtod nga gikuhaan na si Iyo Delfin sa kahitas-an sa iyang hinuwaman nga kinabuhi. Gilubong siya nga wala gani motambong ang iyang mga anak. Wala man gani manumbaling sa panawagan nga gipasibya sa radyo.

Until Iyo Delfin's borrowed life was taken back by the Most High. His children did not even attend his burial.  They did not even mind the announcement which was broadcast over the radio.

Igo nga nahuman ang katapusang pangadye alang sa kalag sa namatay, nahiabot ang mga anak ni Iyo Delfin. Puno sila sa pagbasol dihang miduaw sila sa lubong sa ilang amahan didto sa sam-ang. Nagmahay pa sila kunohay sa mga silingan, nganong wala sila paabuta una ilubong si Iyo Delfin. Ang mapuanguron nga mga silingan wala na lang mokomento sa mga pulong sa mga anak ni Iyo Delfin aron mapugngan ang away.

Just when the last prayer for the soul of the dead was finished.  Iyo Delfin's children arrived.   They were filled with regret when they visited the tomb of their father in the cemetery.  They feigned resentment towards their neighbors.  Why they did not wait for their arrival before Iyo Delfin was buried.  The compassionate neighbors chose not to comment to the opinions of the children of Iyo Delfin to prevent any fight.

Dihang nagkapundok ang tanang mga pamilya ug suod nga mga kadugo ni Iyo Delfin diha sa dakong hawanan sa ilang balay, gisultihan sila sa abogado ni Iyo Delfin bahin sa kabilin niini nga nakapahikurat sa tanan. Matod sa abogado nga sumala sa testamento nga gipabuhat kaniya sa namatay, ang tanang kabtangan ni Iyo Delfin sama sa yuta, balay ug uban pa, gibilin niya sa nag-atiman kaniya samtang siya nasakit, nga mao si Boloy. Ang testamento pinermahan gayud ni Iyo Delfin ug notaryado sa abogado.

When all the family members and close relatives of Iyo Delfin have gathered in the big hall in their house, they were informed by the lawyer of Iyo Delfin about his will that shocked everybody.   The lawyer said that according to the testament that the deceased had asked him to make, all the properties of Iyo Delfin such as land, house and others, he left to the one who took care of him when he was sick, which was Boloy.  The testament was really signed by Iyo Delfin and notarized by the lawyer.

Hasta si Boloy, nahikurat kaayo sa gisulti sa abogado. Wala man siya magdahom nga siya diay maoy binlan ni Iyo Delfin sa iyang mga kabtangan.

Everyone, including Boloy, was shocked at what the lawyer said.  He did not expect that it was to him that Iyo Delfin would leave all his properties.
