On Nov. 12, Sunday, Janica Nam Floreca took to Facebook to share a video of herself and her late boyfriend, Franco Hernandez. The video was said to be the last video of the member of the #Hashtags group before his death.
“Eto yung last video natin yung araw na papunta na tayo sa bangka at nangyari ung accident,” (This is our last video on the day we went to the motorized banca before the accident happened) Floresca captioned the video. “Hindi ko alam parang magmmessage ka sakin kaya sabi ko “wait lang ivvideo ko” ang sabi mo dyan “sorry” pero hindi mo tinuloy.” (I don’t know. You seem to be giving me a message then. I said, “Wait, I’ll take a video.” You say here, “Sorry.” But you did not continue.”
“Bakit naman ganon mahal ang unfair unfair mo naman mahal ko sabi mo sakin you want to make more memories with me. Bakit naman ganon!” (Why? You are so unfair, my love. You said to me we will make memories with me. Why?!) “Please tuparin mo naman mga pangako mo sakin. Ang dami dami pa natin pangarap mahal! Balik ka na please miss na miss na kita sobrang mahal na mahal kita mahal na mahal mahal ko ikaw ang buhay ko mahal.” (Please stay true to your promise to me. We had so many dreams, my love. Please come back. I miss you so much. I love you so, so much. You are my life, my love.)
At the age of 26, Hernandez died of drowning on Nov. 11, Saturday, in Davao Occidental. He was spending the weekend with Floresca at a resort owned by Hernandez’s fellow #Hashtags member Tom Doromal.
