Ramgen's kin commemorate death anniversary
MANILA, Philippines -- The family of the slain son of veteran actor Ramon Revilla, Sr., Ramgen, commemorated the first anniversary of his death on Thursday, which coincided with All Souls' Day.
"Gusto namin alalahanin ang lahat ng mga magagandang bagay na nagawa ni Ramgen," Ramgen's mother Genelyn Magsaysay told ABS-CBN News Thursday at the Angelus Eternal Garden in Toclong, Imus, where the former actor's remains lie.
"Alalahanin [namin] 'yung mga panahon na nagkukulitan 'yung mga bata, ang kanilang kasiyahan," Magsaysay added.
On October 29, 2011, Ramgen, 22, was shot and stabbed dead by a masked attacker inside their home in BF Homes in Parañaque City. His girlfriend, Janelle Manahan, was also shot in the face by the attacker but survived the incident.
Two of Bautista's siblings, Ramon Joseph and Ramona, are accused of being behind the murder.
On Thursday, 3 days after the actual first death anniversary of Bautista, Magsaysay shared what she misses most about her slain son.
"Mga nami-miss ko kay Ramgen, marami eh, 'yung kanyang pagiging maasikaso at maaalalahanin," she said.
"'Sasabihin niya pag Sunday, 'Mommy, kung pwede meron tayong dinner with the family, para meron tayong mga family bonding.' [Sasabihin din niya], 'Mommy, matulog ka nang maaga, huwag ka mag-alala, huwag ka mamomroblema, mahal ka namin,'" Magsaysay added.
Known for his roles in TV series like "Tonyong Bayawak," Bautista was planning to run as councilor in Imus, Cavite before his tragic death.
