- The mother of Lola Sonya is still alive and has already visited the wake of her daughter and grandson
- At 92 years old, the pain of a mother losing her child and her grandson may have been too deep
- The old woman wept when she visited the wake of two of her loved ones
- Other family members did their best to comfort the weeping elderly who was already in a frail state
The 94-year-old mother of Lola Sonya, Carmen Rufino went to visit the wake of her daughter, Sonya Gregorio, and her grandson, Frank Anthony Gregorio, as found on ABS-CBN's post below.
The old woman was already in a frail state but one could see the grief on her face as she leans on other family members.
As they say, it is painful to lose a mother or a father but the pain of a mother losing a child may be unbearable.
In this case, Lola Carmen lost not only her daughter but her grandson as well, two family members in just one single strike.
The victims, Lola Sonya Gregorio and Frank Anthony were shot by Jonel Nuezca point-blank, within their compound due to an argument over a "boga."
The suspect voluntarily surrendered to the police and is now under their custody.
Issues have hounded the Philippine National Police (PNP). Before the Gregorio issue, many stories concerning "police brutality" have made rounds online. A case in point was that of Corporal Winston Ragos.
The Philippine Army Chief already ordered the launch of an investigation on the death of Corporal Winston Ragos who, with his arms up in the air, and upon bringing it down was shot by policemen at a checkpoint. His sling bag did not contain any gun or any weapon, as per the statement of his relative. The PA, on the other hand, as per its statement, also mentioned that the wounds of a soldier are not merely physical but also mental.
An incident in Quiapo Church also caught the attention of social media users. Two police officers took away the protest materials while the mass was ongoing.
