Ermita added, to assume Remonde’s position, the President has designated Secretary Limcaoco as Acting Press Secretary.

”As one of the Cabinet officials who worked directly and closely with the President, Secretary Remonde was one of this Administration’s most competent, faithful and loyal stalwarts. His demise is indeed greatly felt,” Ermita added.

Remonde’s remains will be brought to Heritage Park in Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City, where he will lie in state today and tomorrow. On Thursday, Remonde's remains will be brought to the Palace and, on Friday, his body will be brought to Cebu for final interment.
