    Lolo Cesar was such an amazing human being – so full of love & joy, the greatest sense of humor, & so proud of his family. He really showed all of us how to live life well. He will be missed but he has without a doubt earned his place in the Lord’s kingdom, next to Lola Yi. Our thoughts are with his beloved family & friends. Lots of love always.

  • We would like to offer our condolences to the Ferreros Gonzales clan. Knowing Tito Cesar and being his godson in my baptism will always be a privilege. We will always remember him for his warmth, humour and generosity. We pray that God welcomes him in his kingdom and grant him eternal rest.
