It has been 40 days since former Cavite Governor Ayong Maliksi died but his son, Imus Mayor Emmanuel Maliksi continue to remember and live by his father’s memories.
On the 40th day after the death of Gob Ayong, as he was fondly called, the younger Maliksi paid tribute to the longtime Cavite governor in a Facebook post.
“Daddy, kulang ang salitang pasasalamat sa mga sakripisyo, at sa lahat ng mga ibinahagi mong tulong at saya sa amin,” the Imus mayor said.
“40 na araw ang lumipas ngunit nananatili kang buhay sa aming mga puso – ang mga aral na iyong iniwan at ang mga masasayang alaala na ating pinagsamahan. Patuloy namin itong babaunin sa bawat araw,” he added.
Ayong Maliksi, who had been in public office for nearly 40 years, died last Feb 24 at the age of 82. He served as Cavite governor from 2001 to 2010.
