The whole nation mourns for the lost of a beloved King of Comedy of the Philippine Cinema and Television. The death of Pidol or Dolphy is indeed a great loss of the movie industry and just thinking about it. No one can ever replace what he had made and give to the industry of film and television.
His a legend, a very appropriate name to call someone who had greatly contributed to the happiness of every child who will never fail to watch his filipino sitcoms which will be forever engraved in the heart of many households and family.
Tributes, appreciation, this was all given after his death but he was not even spared of politics. Even if he would have a landslide when he join politics, he remained humble and silently give charity to the poor. He might have lead a life having several woman but this did not hinder him to be a good father, a good friend and most of all, a good person.
His death might be a suffering for his family and a sad event for his fans like us but his journey is yet unknown but one thing is for sure, the Good Lord will give him a good life wherever it was because he lives his life not just giving a helping hand but also for making people believe that there was happiness even in tears and joy even we are lacking on some things.
Now the curtains falls down for the final chapter of his life. National Artist or not, we will be forever grateful to Dolphy because of all that he shared and all that he offered. For giving us reasons to be happy despite the gloomy reality of life and for giving us the chance to feel the happiness of looking forward each night to watch his sitcoms.
Thank you so much for sharing with the Filipino people the happy side of you! For making us smile and burst into laughter with all your tricks and treats to everyone. You are indeed a king, enigmatic figure in this era.
