Rep. Alfonso Umali marks 1st death anniv of his brother Rey Umali
Oriental Mindoro Rep. Alfonso Umali marked the first death anniversary of his brother former lawmaker Reynaldo V. Umali.
“Minsan ay nagninilay-nilay ako, naiisip ko na sana nandirito ka. Pero alam kong masaya ka na sa piling ng ating Panginoon,” he said.
“Rey, miss ka na naming lahat,” he added.
Rey Umali died last January due to cardiac arrest. He was 63.
The late solon also tested positive for coronavirus disease in December 2020, which aggravated his liver cancer.
“Isang paggunita sa aking utol na si Reynaldo “RU” V. Umali. Mananatili ka sa puso at isipan namin. Mahal ka namin,” he said.
Rey Umali served as 2nd district representative of Oriental Mindoro for three consecutive terms from 2010 to 2019
