Ilocos Norte 1st District Representative Ria Fariñas is mourning the death of her grandmother, Remedios Dreyer Castro Fariñas, who died at the age of 99.
In a Facebook post on October 20, the politiko said that while she is sad her beloved “Mang” is no longer with them, she is happy to know her grandmother is in a better place now.
“We love you & miss you, Mang, but we take comfort knowing that you’re in a better place now…. 99 beautiful years and you remained the strong fighter that you are till the very end,” Fariñas said.
The family matriarch died on October 17. Her wake, however, was restricted to only her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren to observe physical distancing rules during the COVID-19 pandemic.
She was laid to rest on October 24.
