CEBU - A family member visited the grave of Capt. Jessup Bahinting in Ginatilan, Cebu, in time for the late pilot's fourth death anniversary.

Bahinting was the pilot of the Piper Seneca aircraft carrying the late Interior Secretary Jesse Robredo and two others, which crashed off the shore of Masbate four years ago.

Annabelle Sol, Bahinting's niece, offered flowers and lit candles at Bahinting's grave in Seaside Cemetery.

According to Sol, their family has moved on already from the tragic death of her uncle.

"He was so kind and generous. We cannot afford to forget him, most especially our wonderful memories together," Sol said.

The Bahinting family continues to manage the flying school previously managed by the late pilot.
