Pangasinan 4th District Representative Christopher “Toff” de Venecia mourned the passing of Batanes Representative Henedina Abad, who had died due to cancer.
De Venecia, who used to be Abad’s party mate at the Liberal Party before he jumped ship to PDP-Laban, took to Facebook to express how much he had admired Abad.
“I will miss you dearly Congresswoman Tita Dina Abad. It was an honor serving under you in the Government Reorganization Committee. I will never forget our talks and brainstorming sessions immediately after each hearing,” said De Venecia.
“You’re an inspiration to me, to a lot of us. I know for sure that God has welcomed you to the gates of heaven. I pray that those whom you leave behind will continue to toil, struggle, fight the good fight,” he added.
