Camarines Sur Rep. Luis Raymund “LRay” Villafuerte has thanked all those who expressed sympathies to their family amid the passing of their patriarch Luis R. Villafuerte, Sr.
“Sobrang pasasalamat ng aming pamilya sa libo libong mga Tao nag paparamdam ng kanilang pagmamahal sa aking mahal na ama , Luis R Villafuerte , Sr , kilala sa nickname na Louie o LRV , an original na Agila ng CamSur,” he said.
The younger Villafuerte said that his father has been called a genius, innovator, highly talented, intellectual, their mentor, partner and most of all their good friend they can depend on at all times.
“From simple , ordinary people whom my father helped to be able to go to school , to go to college and finish , to have been given a job , a home , medical and livelihood assistance and more . We get calls from abroad who wanted to thank my father because they are now living comfortably abroad and they have a stable job and family because my father helped them,” he said.
“From politicians , mayors , congressmen and governors all over the country whom my father helped and gave advice . Many calls thanking him because my father issued them their certificate of nominations as candidates and were given a break in public service and Government,” he added.
