Bagong Henerasyon party-list Rep. Bernadette Herrera on Monday mourned the sudden passing of Senior Citizens party-list Rep. Francisco Datol Jr., who died early Monday.

“Bilang House deputy majority leader at Kinatawan ng Bagong Henerasyon Party-list, Nakikiramay po ako sa buong pamilya ni Congressman Francisco ‘Jun’ Datol, pati na rin sa mga kasamahan niya sa Senior Citizen Party-list,” the congresswoman said.

Herrera recalled Datol’s energetic personality, saying they often talked on the phone.

“Masayang katrabaho si Congressman Jun Datol sa Kongreso. Ka-phone pal ko yan. Kausap ko halos araw-araw para maitulak ang mga bill at resolution para sa seniors,” she said.

“Hindi ko na-feel na siya ay may edad na dahil sa enerhiyang ipinapamalas niya sa tuwing nagtatrabaho, lalo na sa komite,” Herrera said.

“Bilib din ako sa kahandaan niyang tumulong sa mga nangangailangan,” she added.

“Maraming naipundar na mga batas si Congressman Jun Datol mula pa noong 17th Congress para sa kapakanan ng mga seniors,” Herrera said.
