Comedian Vice Ganda delivered an emotional eulogy at the wake of his friend, late Hashtags member Franco Hernandez, who died in a drowning accident.
KAMI learned about Vice’s statement about Franco from PEP.ph.
Vice narrated how he was mentally and emotionally devastated by the news of Franco’s death.
“Si Franco, alam niya na kaya ko siya ipinapatawag para libangin niya ako. Nililibang niya ako talaga. Ta’s pag sumigaw na ako ng 'out,' lalabas na sila.
“Kaya nung nalaman ko na may nangyari kay Franco, nasa New Zealand ako for Anne’s wedding, I was really devastated. I couldn’t go out of my room. I was just crying the whole time. Nabaliw ako.”
“Dun sa group chat ng Showtime, nanawagan ako, ‘I need to talk to someone. Sinong gising? Kailangan ko kausapin. Hindi ko ‘to kaya.’
“Para akong nabaliw. So, kinausap ko E.P. [executive producer] namin, hagulgol ako nang hagulgol. Ta’s nakita ko sa cellphone ko two hours na kaming nag-iiyakan. Sabi ko, ‘Bye.’
“Kasi na-realize ko ang mahal ng babayaran ko! Iiyak na lang ako, ta’s iri-record ko, ta’s pasa ko sa Viber. Ang tanga-tanga ko naman. Bakit hindi ako sa Viber tumawag, Job? Hindi mo rin sinabi.”
KAMI is hoping that Vice would be able to cope with the loss of his friend.
