It was like only yesterday when Hashtag Franco Hernandez left us, and the grief still seems evident one year after that tragic incident.
A cheerful, vibrant, and promising member of the Hashtags, Franco was that amiable, dependable, and closest friend among the brood after joining the group in February 2017. And his affability spread to the entire It’s Showtime family as they all had fond memories of Franco.
Franco’s passing in November 2017 due to a boating mishap while he was on vacation with fellow Hashtag Tom Doromal and their girlfriends was a tragedy that broke the Madlang People’s hearts. It came as a shock; a nightmare no one could believe.
The tragedy brought unbearable pain to Franco’s family, friends, and his growing number of fans. His fellow Hashtag members and the rest of the family were all devastated, as they were even inconsolable as they shared their unforgettable moments with Franco in a somber, meaningful tribute episode of the noontime show in his honor.
Franco is forever etched in the hearts and minds of everyone close to him, especially the Hashtags, who shared their memories with their warm and jovial brother to mark his first death anniversary.
