On the sixth year she observed All Saints’ Day after Jesse’s death, Robredo visited the grave of the former mayor and later interior secretary Thursday afternoon with the people of Naga.

Jesse, who was mayor of Naga City for nearly two decades, died in a plane crash off Masbate last August 18, 2012.

His cremated remains have been entombed at the Eternal Gardens Memorial Park.

Robredo, a former housing chief, continues to hold on to his memories and pick up many lessons from his life and style of leadership.

The Vice President observed All Saints’ Day with Filipinos in remembering their departed loved ones.

Robredo said she was accompanied by her eldest daughter, Aika, when she came home to Naga City.

“Home in Naga for Undas. Only Aika is with me. Trish could not make it because of duty,” she said in one of her Instagram stories.
