TRIBUTE TO SENATOR TOBIAS C. ENVERGA JR.
Honourable Senators, I rise today with a heavy heart to pay tribute to our dearly departed colleague and friend, The Honourable Tobias C. Enverga Jr. And express my sincere condolences to the love of his life Rosemer who would be celebrating their 35th years of marriage in January of 2018; and their 3 princesses, Reeza, Rocel, and Rystle who were always in their father’s heart wherever he was, now in Heaven. Please know that your loss is our loss and you are in our thoughts and prayers.
I called Tobias “Jun” (which means “junior”). We called ourselves “cousins”, bound by a shared history of bloodshed on the Korean peninsula during the Korean War by his kinsmen of The Philippines who were the first to answer the call for help. On this foundation forged in sweat, tears and blood, we stood on the shoulders of the heroes who had served and sacrificed their lives for us.
