The Eigenmann family paid tribute to Cherie Gil in an intimate gathering, nearly a month since the veteran actress passed away.

Cherie’s brother Michael de Mesa gave the public a glimpse of the family reunion while expressing love for his sister on his Instagram page yesterday, Sept. 2. Their other brother Mark Gil, whose real name is Ralph Eigenmann, passed away back in 2014.


“I know you were with us — smiling, crying, and laughing at the beautiful memories we shared of you with each other. We miss you so much! But in our grief, we smile knowing that you are hugging Ralph again,” De Mesa said. “We love you, Cherie!”

Among those present during the family’s gathering were Cherie’s children Raphael and Bianca, husband Rony Rogoff, and her nephews and nieces—Andi Eigenmann, Gabby Eigenmann, Sid Lucero and Geoff Eigenmann.


Meanwhile, De Mesa can be seen next to a portrait of Cherie and a small urn containing her ashes.

Cherie passed away last Aug. 5 after battling a rare form of endometrial cancer. Her family stated Cherie had requested to keep her cancer diagnosis from the public, and noted that the veteran actress fought the disease with “grace and strength.”  /ra
