LOOK: Magalona clan remembers dad Francis on his death anniversary
Nine years after his death, the family of master rapper Francis Magalona made sure that his memory is alive and his legacy lives on.
The Magalona clan got together on Tuesday to commemorate their patriarch’s death anniversary. They visited the musician’s burial site in Loyala Memorial Chapels in Marikina City, as seen in a photo uploaded by actress Maxene in her Instagram page.
March 6, 2009 was the day you joined God in heaven. 9 years later, here we all are still honoring you and your legacy which we will continue doing for the rest of our lives. Thank you for always watching over us, papa! We love and miss you! ❤ #FrancisMForever #FamilyForeverFEATURED STORIESENTERTAINMENT
Sharing this throwback photo of her as a baby being cradled by her papa, Maxene expressed that she misses him everyday, and proclaimed she was proud to be a “Daddy’s Girl.”
His other daughter Clara wished that he may continue to watch over his family. She then expressed her love and how much she misses him “more and more each day.”
Magalona’s widower, Pia, also remembered her late husband, paying tribute to him on her own Instagram page: “You left us with your music, but—as Father said at the mass last Sunday—you also left behind your greatest legacy, your family,” she said. “We love each other the way you taught us to, and you are always in our hearts.”
The “Master Rapper” lost his battle with leukemia on March 6, 2009, about seven months after he was first diagnosed with the disease. JB
