The remains of showbiz industy’s treasure, Mr. Eddie Garcia, were cremated last night straight from the hospital as per his wishes.
Before the cremation, a solemn ceremony was held among loved ones.
“People spoke remembrances of Tito Ed just before the cremation itself, after Tirso [Cruz III] said the prayers,” Bibeth Orteza, one of the close friends of the family told pikapika.ph
As early as 2012, during the interviews he gave for the film Bwakaw, a film that dealt with death, he was very open in saying he wanted to be cremated right away when he pass on. No fanfare at all. He said he didn’t want to disturb and further hurt his loved ones and friends by going to his wake. Furthermore, he didnt like the viewing part of the traditional wake.
The family is still holding a three-day wake for the great actor-director to give chance to everyone who loved him to altogether celebrate and cherish his memories.
And there will be a short remembrance program every night, according to Bibeth. Tonight, GMA-7 is hosting the program, and tomorrow, Saturday, will be ABS-CBN’s turn. The Sunday program is care of the family.
