Dolphy, gone at 83
According to the official statement made by the Makati Medical Center, Dolphy’s death was due to complications resulting from his Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
Eric Quizon, one of his sons, expresses their families deep gratitude for all who have shown love for their father.
"He lived a full life. He's at rest. He's at peace. He knew as he was going how much the country loved him. He knew how everyone was praying for him. And if he could, he would have stayed just so he could thank you personally. But where his spirit was strong, his body had so weakened. He had to go.
"Pray for his eternal repose and in his honor, please smile at the person standing next to you. Heaven is a happier place with him there. And for us whom he's left behind, comedy is dead but long live comedy," Eric added.
