“In behalf of my family and the entire people of Coron, Palawan, I commiserate on the early demise of the Hon. Sangguniang Bayan Member Sonny Isidro Yap Yong.
SB Yong was a loving husband and father. When he was with us, he indeed touched our lives, one way or another. He was a dedicated public servant and cared so much for what he thought was right and just for his hometown and his people.
I pray that the Lord grant SB Yong’s family with the fortitude to bear his loss and may the soul of the departed rest in in the arms of our heavenly Father.
Today, I have lost a great friend,” Reyes posted.
