ISA sina Sen. Kiko Pangilinan at Sharon Cuneta sa sobrang nalungkot sa pagkawala ng kilalang photographer at itinuring nilang pamilya na si Raymund Isaac dahil sa COVID-19.
Lahat kasi ng mahahalagang okasyon nilang pamilya ay present ang sikat na photographer.
Ipinost ni Sharon ang larawan ni Raymund na bakunado na sa kanyang Instagram na may caption na, ”I am still in deep SHOCK. Covid has taken so many loved ones away from us all. Now it has taken away from us – from ME – one of only two of the country’s top – and my most trusted, most-often-contracted photographers and really good friends.
“Raymund Isaac, we will never understand (yet again, for the nth time) WHY you had to leave us so early. Ang dami pa nating gagawin di ba? Thank you for my Mega30 Billboard photo, my girls’ and Miguel’s and my Nido milk ad photos, countless magazine covers, etc.
“I will miss your thoughtfulness and kindness and love during our photo shoots at your studio or our home your lambing and just making kwento with you about our teenage years – you in La Salle, me in St. Paul’s and I.S.M. – just laughing our hearts out whenever we worked together and found a break to catch up.
“I have always loved you and will love you forever. Your passing hasn’t fully hit me yet and I am scared for when it does. May you rest in peace and in God’s loving arms.
“Our deepest condolences to Raymund Isaac’s family, husband Jason, & all others who love him (emoji hearts and praying) @frankiepangilinan @kiko.pangilinan @miel.pangilinan,” mensahe pa ng Megastar.
Samantala, nag-post din si Senator Kiko sa kanyang IG account ng larawan nilang pamilya tuwing Pasko na kuha ni Raymund.
Aniya, ”The news of Raymund’s passing is heart breaking. In the last 20 or so years, Raymund would on several occasions take our traditional annual Christmas photos as a family.
“I have uploaded a few here to honor him, his passion and his unyielding dedication to his craft. They were to the family, beautiful, amazing photos from an extremely talented artist.
“Our last traditional Christmas family photo prior to Covid was taken by Raymund in 2019. Huli na pala ‘yun. He will be terribly missed.
“Very few in our common circle of friends knew that Raymund and I were batchmates in La Salle Greenhills class of 1981. We were even together in the HS Student Council (then known as the SACB) in our senior year.
“We in our LSGH Batch 81 viber thread, stormed heaven with prayers as we had been monitoring his condition since his confinement at end of July. Yet the Almighty had other plans for you, Raymund. God now has a truly talented, wonderful, loving, dedicated and compassionate professional photographer in Paradise by His side.
“Rest in peace, Raymund. You fought hard and it is now time to rest in God’s embrace. No more pain for you our dear family friend, my classmate. Sharon, myself, KC, Kakie, Yellie and Miguel will surely miss you.
“Our deepest condolences to the Isaac family and to his loved ones (emoji praying and broken hearted).”
