Monday, September 1, 2014
ACTOR Gabby Eigenmann took to image-sharing app, Intagram, to bid farewell to his father, Mark Gil, who passed away at 8 a.m. on Monday.
The "Dading" lead star uploaded a photo of him and his father on Instagram, hours after the reported passing of the veteran actor.
"And so you held my hand in yours, just like you did when I was young. But then you held it to your heart just as you slowly slipped away," Eigenmann wrote.
"Today I said goodbye to you, Dad. I said the last I love you that you would hear. Fly free with the Lord, fly free without pain. No worries, no problems, just love," he added.
Eigenmann, the eldest son of Gil (Raphael Joseph De Mesa Eigenmann in real life) thanked his father for the legacy he left behind and for all the things he had done for their family.
"You will be forever in our hearts, till we meet again," he said.
Reports said Gil died of liver cirrhosis. He would have celebrated his 53rd birthday on September 25. (Sunnex)
