We are deeply saddened by the untimely demise of former Marinduque Rep. Regina Reyes-Mandanas, whom we fondly called Ate Gina.
Ate Gina was loved by the people of Marinduque and Batangas for her wit, wisdom, and style. Her years of service to her home province of Marinduque as Provincial Administrator and as Representative, and as the First Lady of Batangas, have truly endeared her to the people of both provinces. Her legacy of public service will never be forgotten.
We would like to express our sincere condolences to Batangas Governor Hermilando “Dodo” Mandanas and to the Reyes family. Words fall short of expressing our sorrow and we stand with you during your time of grief.
Ate Gina will always be remembered as a friend and beloved daughter of Marinduque. #
