'I don't quite understand why everything is happening at the same time. Sunod-sunod. Bigat,' writes Wynwyn about her brother's drug case and the death of Mark Herras' uncle

MANILA, Philippines – Days after the arrest of her half-brother Mark Anthony Fernandez, Wynwyn Marquez has spoken up about the issue on Instagram.

On Friday, October 7, Wynwyn posted an an Instagram photo that read “Everything will be okay.”

In the caption, she expressed dismay over the events that have taken place over the past few days, including Mark Anthony Fernandez’s arrest and the death of her boyfriend Mark Herras’ uncle.

“I don’t quite understand why everything is happening at the same time. Sunod-sunod (One after the other). Bigat (It’s so heavy),” she wrote.

“I pray for my brother’s safety, pray na sana matapos na lahat ‘to (hopefully this will end soon). They don’t know how good you are to us and everyone around you. And I pray for my mom’s health please dont worry too much, maayos din lahat (everything will be fixed),” she continued.

Mark Anthony was arrested this week after being caught with more than one kilogram of marijuana in his car.

He has since said that the marijuana was for medical purposes, and claimed that the police are framing him. According to Mark Anthony, the police allegedly put the one kiogram of marijuana in his car after they caught him.

Mark Anthony and Wynwyn’s mom, Alma Moreno, visited him a few days after his arrest, citing high blood pressure for the delay.

The arraignment for his case will be on October 24.


 

On the death of Mark’s uncle, Wynwyn said: “And I pray for Tito Hermi’s soul, who left us so early at biglaan ang nagalaga at tumayong tatay ni Mark at napamahal na din sa akin nang sobra. Salamat sa lahat tito.”

(And I pray for Tito Hermi’s soul, who left us so early and who suddenly had to take care of and stand as Mark’s father and loved me so much too. Thank you for everything, uncle.)

Mark was raised by his mother’s brother and his partner. His mom’s brother, whom Mark calls “Daddy Jun,” died in 2014.

Mark himself posted a message for Jun’s partner, whom he refers to as “Pim.”

“I don’t know what to say Pim… Hindi ako handa, bigla ka nalang nangiwan... Please say hi kay mamang, mama, and daddy… I will miss you everyday! Love you Pim! Maraming salamat po sa lahat…” he wrote.

(I don’t know what to say Pim… I wasn’t ready, you just suddenly left… Please say hi to mamang, mama, and daddy… I will miss you everyday! Love you Pim! Thank you for everything…)



On her post, Wynwyn added a few words of strength and love for Mark.

“Pangga [Mark Herras], you have me and I have you. We’ll take care of each other diba? Sa isa’t isa lang tayo humuhugot ng lakas. Matutupad wish ni tito na gagawin natin ‘yun. Everything will be okay… I love you so much.”

(Mark, you have me and I have you. We’ll take care of each other, right? We draw strength from each other. Uncle’s wish will be fulfilled that we’ll do that. Everything will be okay… I love you so much.)

In April, Mark has expressed his intent to marry Wynwyn after around two years. – Rappler.com
