Toby Tiangco laments not seeing dad before his death

0

Toby Tiangco is sad to not have been there when his dad passed away.

The Navotas mayor announced the death of the family patriarch, Restituto Tiangco, at dawn of September 21, Monday. It was sudden, and the worst part was that they were not there beside him due to COVID-19.

“Let us pray for his soul as he now rests in peace. So sad lang kasi last time I saw my Papa physically was March 08. Sacrificed for 197 days of not being able to go to their house. Sinunod ko ang health protocols, para safe,” the politiko said.

He then recounted the whole ordeal on Saturday, when his dad was rushed to the hospital for fever leading to his passing.

Our condolences.

It saddens us to announce the sudden passing of our beloved Papa, Restituto Borromeo Tiangco who peacefully joined our Lord today on September 21, 2020 at 12:30am. Let us pray for his soul as he now rests in peace. So sad lang kasi last time I saw my Papa physically was March 08. Sacrificed for 197 days of not being able to go to their house. Sinunod ko ang health protocols, para safe. He was okay until Friday. Saturday may slight fever. Was brought to the Makati Med last night at 830pm for a CT Scan, sabi ni Doctor best CT Scan ever. My sister Babylyn, was just paying when she noticed that he was gasping for air. Was brought to the ER at about 11:30pm. Your sympathies mean a lot. Wake announcements to follow.
