Per Washington Post, death due to natural causes. Today the family (relatives, friends) in keeping with a Filipino custom went to mass and had a celebration in honor of John Malvar forty days after his death. Somehow, it seems “okay” that if the father was going to die soon, that he died on the day of celebration for his son.
Just read this news. Poor man, he died of a broken heart for sure. Hope Dad and son are now in peace together. I just feel terrible for the other siblings – so much grief! Hope they find comfort in their faith. Hugs to all.
