Sumakabilang-buhay na si special envoy at dating Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) Undersecretary Wencelito Andanar.
Siya ay 73 taong gulang.
Si Andanar ay yumao dahil sa kanser sa atay, ayon sa kanyang anak na si Presidential Communications Secretary Martin Andanar.
Sabi ng anak, nasawi ang tatay alas-7:50 ng umaga ngayong Abril 22 sa Veteran’s Memorial Medical Center.
“I know I speak for many when I say that we have lost not just a remarkable civil servant but a pillar in our lives. He may no longer be with us, but his deeds and his legacy will continue to live on in our hearts,” banggit ng nakababatang Andanar.
“Paalam, Papa! Thank you for being a brother, a father, a confidant, and a friend. You had a life well-lived. You are a lifelong example of leadership and selflessness. When I meet you in the sun, I shall tell you much,” aniya pa.
