For Sen. Heherson Alvarez

I JOIN the rest of the nation in mourning the passing of a respectable leader and a good friend, former Sen. Heherson Alvarez. I had the great opportunity to learn from this reasonable and hard-working lawmaker as a neophyte senator in 1992 when I first joined the Senate.

I feel more pain with his loss as I and the rest of my colleagues at the Senate and our counterparts at the House of Representatives cannot even give him the proper recognition and reverence due to a former member of Congress, given that his passing comes during this time when the country is gripped by this infectious, fatal virus and a necrological ceremony cannot possibly be held.

To his family, especially to his wife Cecille and his two children, may you find solace in the thought that he is now free of any suffering, and is now peacefully watching over you as you continue your life journeys. His legacy will live on in the hearts and minds of the people, and his name will forever be etched in our country's rich history.
