Steph Ayson: "I knew I want to marry AJ Perez" | Steph Ayson Eulogy

AJ Perez' girlfriend Steph Ayson delivered a heartbreaking and touching eulogy at AJ's wake last night, April 25, at Christ The King Parish.

Steph shared that she and AJ first met in September 2007, met again in 2009 and officially became "on" in February 14, 2010, 3 days before AJ's 17th birthday.

Here's Steph's Eulogy, transcript courtesy of Yahoo! OMG! Philippines:

"I want to be a teacher, a lawyer, and suddenly a doctor. I want to be able to write well, to sing well, and to dance well. All of those changed except one. I knew I want to marry a guy. And his name was AJ Perez."

"I was a silly girl, writing our names beside each other. I was scribbling hearts and playing Flames and I would wake up every Saturday just to watch "Abt Ur Luv." I would sit in front of the TV and watch ASAP. I was a fan and I would like to think I was the biggest fan he had."

"Cheesy, but that's AJ. Cheesy, sweet, sincere. He wanted to promise me the world, but I asked him not to. Because I was too afraid to hurt him, but he promised anyway, and he kept each one of them. He asked for my full trust. I admitted I was having a difficulty, but showed me that he knows what trust means and he'll never do anything to break that."

"He told me that even if I don't say 'I love you' back away or show him sweetness just like he would, his exact words were, 'I would wait a lifetime.'"

"If this is God's way of showing me forever, I accept it... AJ taught me how to love. He was very selfless. His love was the most pure thing on Earth. It was, in every way, unconditional. And probably that's the message here. He wants all of us to love the way he did also."

"He made me so happy, and even to his last day, he would talk to me and tell me that 'I want you always to be happy. I don't want you sad. I want you to smile a lot. You know why? Because I love you.' And I know as the days go by it will be very difficult but AJ would say he'd want us to be happy. That's the way he lived. He was happy."

"To my baby, you'll always be in my heart. Thank you for making my dreams come true. I'll take care of your family for you. And I'll love the way you loved me."


Many expected that Steph would share in the eulogy the letter that AJ wrote to her before he died. It's not the "letter to future girlfriend" which was published on Candy Magazine in October 2007, but it was a handwritten letter by AJ to Steph, but unfortunately, she's not sharing it to anyone. Let's just leave it to the two of them.

On Twitter, Steph shared a link to a Youtube video containing her photos with boyfriend AJ Perez and said: "Found this video. Thank you so much to the person who made this. :)"
