TUIG 2012 na-diagnose si Mark Gil nga may liver cancer, kini ang pagkumpirma sa iyang pamilya.
Gihimugso nga Raphael John de Mesa Eigenmann, buot sa aktor nga itagu ang iyang kondisyon, bisan pa og nasayran niyang grabe na ang iyang sakit.
"It was Ralph's request that this should not be revealed, and we did not question his decision," sa pahayag sa pamilya.
"To those who have asked us about his condition, especially his colleagues, the press and fans, we apologize for not being forthright, but we also ask for understanding."
Nabilin sa aktor nga mag-53 na unta karong September 25 ang kapikas nga si Maricar ug mga anak nga sila Stephanie Cheri, ug lain pang lima gikan sa kanhi karelasyon.
"It is with much sorrow that we announce that he passed away this morning at exactly 8 a.m. He died peacefully in his sleep in the arms of his wife, Maricar, and surrounded by family."
Dugang sa pamilya: "Ralph spent his last days in comfort and in no pain. In fact, he was in good spirits and humor, and enjoying the presence of his entire family. Even then, he was still bringing us together, as he always has, and we are now all complete."
"Until the very end, he was a warrior. Ralph faced death with courage and grace, while still bringing laughter to the room. That was his gift: the ability to make those around him better."
"Ralph had told us that he only wanted to spend and cherish the remaining precious days of his life in the company of his family and closest friends. He also wished that we be allowed to grieve his passing in private."
