Every year, it's been a tradition for us Filipinos to organize mini-reunions among our clans and flock at the cemeteries to visit the resting place of our deceased loved ones before, on, or after All Souls' Day and commemorate the lives they used to share with us.
Since it's only a few days before All Souls' Day, let's reminisce the anguishing deaths of some of the characters from the teleseryes we fervently watch daily.
Brad and Emily Cortes, Playhouse
Despite their shortlived stint, Brad (Patrick Garcia) and Emily (Denise Laurel) were still able to leave their marks in our hearts as the doting parents to Robin.
We were all shocked when they died after figuring in a vehicular accident, leaving their only son under the custody of their best friends Patty (Angelica Panganiban) and Marlon (Zanjoe Marudo).
Rosanna Andrada, Kadenang Ginto
Maternal roles in every drama and movie we watch never fail to warm our hearts. Just like Rosana (Eula Valdez), the loving and persevering mother of Romina (Beauty Gonzalez) who until her very last breath fought for her daughter and showed her undying love and support for her.
She succumbed to a heart attack after her heated argument with Carlos (Adrian Alandy) after he failed to show up on their wedding.
Soledad de Jesus-Cardinal, PHR Presents Los Bastardos
Just when she thought that it's going to be a happily ever after for her and husband Don Roman (Geoff Eigenmann) after tying the knot and having a child, someone unexpectedly came into the picture to destroy their beautiful family -- Alba Santillan (Roxanne Barcelo).
Little did they knew that she's not just going to be the cause of their family's destruction, but also the unforeseen death of Soledad (Cristine Reyes) and the loss of their unico hijo Roman Jr. after she shoved her off the cliff in order to kick her out her sight and of Don Roman's life.
Ricardo "Ricky Boy" Dalisay Jr., FPJ's Ang Probinsyano
Everybody were delighted upon the arrival of Cardo Dalisay (Coco Martin) and his wife Alyana's (Yassi Pressman) firstborn who they fondly called as Ricky Boy.
But that incomparable happiness got shortlived because of the adorable kid's untimely death after being among the victims of a bombing inside the mall. The grief and anger he felt fueled him to take on the journey towards finding the real culprit behind that massive and tragic misdeed, through which he met the rebel group Pulang Araw and formed the vigilante group Vendetta.
Rodrigo Cortes, Ngayon at Kailanman
Another idyllic love story destroyed by greed, Rodrigo (TJ Trinidad) and his wife Rebecca's (Iza Calzado) almost perfect life was shattered after he had to go back to their home to claim his inheritance from his late father Julian (Dante Rivero). However, he wasn't able to come back home after he was gunned down by then unknown goons.
Loida Montefalco, Halik
We saw how much she suffered as the dutiful wife of Mauro (Romnick Sarmenta) as she unwaveringly protected her daughter out of wedlock Jacky (Yen Santos). With all the difficulties Loida (Lara Quigaman) faced while she stuck by his side, she still remained faithful and understanding towards him. Thus, it came as a shock when she was believed to take her own life due to the depression she underwent. However, it was later on revealed that her cunning and cruel husband was the one who killed her.
Which of these deaths appalled you and broke your heart the most?
