Our family is in deep sorrow following the untimely passing away of my nephew, Mark Guingona, early this morning.
I was informed that his death may have been brought about by personal concerns. We understand that Mark is young and may have been unable to bear burden of such concerns. The intensity of his pain is known only to him.
In times like these, our family hopes that we can, mourn, go through and process the pain of this tragic experience in private. We also hope that Mark would be allowed his own privacy in his last moments.
We are grateful for the outpouring of sympathy and moral support from friends.
