Ilocos Norte 2nd District Senior Board Member Matthew Marcos Manotoc is mourning the death of his dear uncle, the late Board Member Mariano “Nonong” Marcos II.
The younger politiko posted on Instagram pictures of Nonong doing his work as well as photos of the late board member bonding with his family.
Nonong died of an apparent heart attack last week.
“While I can’t help but be saddened, knowing uncle Nonong, who had a positive energy and a cheerful grin, surely he’d want us to celebrate his life rather than mourn his death,” said Manotoc.
“Tito Nonong was a giant in our legislative body. He served the Sangguniang Panlalawigan for almost 12 years. He had a sharp mind and a caring heart. He was humble and always teaching, mentoring, and helping but he was never overbearing. He truly cared for the people around him,” he added.
