Lloyd Cadena’s best friends celebrate his 27th birthday

The late YouTube star Lloyd Cadena’s best friends celebrated what could have been his 27th birthday, two weeks after his unfortunate passing. 

Fellow vlogger Madam Ely got himself a tattoo of Lloyd’s iconic “towel” look to make sure his best friend will be with him forever. 

“Ayan lagi pa rin tayong magkasama,” he said on Instagram.

In a lengthy birthday post, Madam Ely explained why he chose Lloyd’s “legendary icon” as his tattoo design. 

“I chose this design, your icon — your legendary icon with your towel because this symbol represents the entirety of who you are and all the things you were ‘enabled’ to do because of your talents and gifts,” he said.

Good morning mare. Happy birthday. Ayan lagi pa rin tayong magkasama. Usually sa ganitong araw busy na tayo because alam mo na, OUTING NA! at ako naman excited kasi may PASABOG nanaman akong gift sayo. Di ako nagpapatalo kahit kanino eh, dapat ang pinakabongga at pasabog na gift manggaling sakin. I love to see you happy. It warms my heart. That’s the only thing I wanted for you to feel everyday most especially on your very special day. May jowa ka man o wala, I didn’t want you to feel any less happy. A lot of people don’t know this, pero 22 talaga ang birthday mo, nailagay lang sa birth certificate mo ay 23 kaya 23 na ang sinusunod, but us, we usually start celebrating on the 22nd of September every year… I chose this design, your icon — your legendary icon with your towel because this symbol represents the entirety of who you are and all the things you were “enabled” to do because of your talents & gifts. God gave you a purpose & he enabled you to fulfill that purpose — all of us are so lucky to witness that and I hope that everyone will see as well how you managed to stay focused & not deviate from what you were purposely willed for by the Father no matter the distractions along the way. Maraming maraming maraming salamat sa lahat lahat. Forever and always, mahal na mahal kita mare. You will be greatly missed, but never forgotten. Please continue to guide us and inspire us and help us slowly ease the stabbing pain of your passing. Please pray for us, most especially Mama Lory, Ate Jing, Ate Set, Lhoise, & Papa Jun, that they may be given the strength soon to carry on. Happy birthday mars. ❤️ Tattooed by @jhapzgalvez
