GMA Pinoy TV pays tribute to the Filipino heroes who have fallen in the battle against the COVID-19 pandemic in honor of their passion and sacrifice while serving at the frontlines in the Philippines and abroad.
Through “Memorials,” a series of videos and posts on its Facebook page, GMA Pinoy TV extends its sincerest gratitude to the deceased as well as its deepest sympathy to their loved ones.
These heroes come in various forms – they are doctors, nurses, health workers, leaders in Filipino communities abroad, volunteers, teachers, and overseas Filipinos.
Most of them are admired by their family and friends for being cheerful, loving, and dedicated to helping and serving others.
Netizens, including the relatives of the fallen heroes, also lauded the video series and expressed how touched they were by the tribute.
Maria Teresa Mateo, wife of one of the frontliners honoured in the video, wrote “Thank you GMA for this tribute. Thank you for honouring all frontliners. For all the prayers, sympathy, comforting messages posted. May the Lord Jesus be glorified in our midsts.”
US-based Fely Perez also expressed her deepest sympathy and wrote, “We honor those who are risking their lives to save others to fight against this virulent enemy. We will never forget! Praying for all of you. Thank you GMA Pinoy TV for this tribute to our heroes.”
Malou Francisco also commented that the loss of their beloved Raymond Abear (her frontliner relative) is heart breaking for all of them in New York as they lost a dedicated and hardworking employee, a very responsible husband to his wife, a very good father to his two young kids. She also shared a few touching anecdotes of him from their last meeting at a family reunion.
“Slowly with God’s care, may we all come to the point of accepting his death. We love him so much and he will be in our hearts forever. May God bless his soul, rest in peace, and may God bless all of them who died too and may they rest in peace!,” Francisco ended.
As GMA Pinoy TV believes that ‘heroes are ordinary people who do extraordinary things in extraordinary times’, the names mentioned in its videos are only few of the many heroes all over the world who have given their lives to fight against the unseen enemy. They may now be gone, but never forgotten.
