Sen Bong Go:

I deeply mourn with great sadness the passing of Ms. Gina Lopez today.

I had the honor of working with her when she was the environment secretary of the Duterte Administration. As a former colleague in the government, I know how passionate, dedicated and humble she was as a public servant and as an Earth warrior.

She was a fearless advocate and a tireless philanthropist, dedicating most of her life for the betterment of her fellow Filipinos. Her exceptional dedication in protecting our environment has no equal today.

Ma'am Gina, taus-pusong pasasalamat po sa inyong hindi napapantayang serbisyo sa kapwa Pilipino. Isa kang katangi-tanging modelo ng tunay na pagmamalasakit sa kapwa tao. May your legacy continue for the generations to come.

I ask a grateful nation to pray for the eternal repose of her soul. And may the Almighty God, the Giver of Life, grant her eternal rest. Have a peaceful journey home to God.
