OrMin Rep. Umali remembers brother Rey on his 64th birthday
Oriental Mindoro Rep. Alfonso Umali has paid tribute to his late brother ex-congressman Rey Umali on the latter’s 64th birth anniversary.
“64 ka na sana ngayon—hindi mo man naabutan ang iyong espesyal na araw kapiling naming mga mahal mo sa buhay, alam ko namang may mas mahalaga at mas importante kang kasama ngayon na nagdiriwang,” the lawmaker said.
“Iyo nang kasama ang ating mga magulang at ang Poong Maykapal,”
Umali died last January due to cardiac arrest. He was 63.
The former solon also tested positive to coronavirus disease last month, which aggravated his liver cancer.
“Ang tanging regalo na maibibigay namin sa iyo ay ang pagpapanatili ng aming katatagan at pagmamahal sa isa’t-isa lalo na sa ating pamilya. Maraming salamat, Rey,” said the incumbent lawmaker.
“Muli, Happy Birthday. Hanggang sa muli nating pagkikita, utol,” he added.
Rey Umali served as 2nd district representative of Oriental Mindoro for three consecutive terms from 2010 to 2019
