The Kapamilya stars visited the late actor's wake last March 11 and brought a mix of comedy with their pain, speaking amongst themselves about Chokoleit's most memorable jokes and moments even with tears falling down their faces, as they paid their respects. They were joined by comedy legend John Lapus and Pokwang's husband Lee O'Brian.
In an interview with the press after the visit, Vice Ganda said that he was shocked to hear about Chokoleit's death. He said, "Tulala, kasi bago pa siya dalhin sa ospital tinawagan na ako noong kaibigan naming kasama niya sa Abra, natataranta kasi hindi nga makahinga. Akala ko kung ano lang kasi lagi namang sumisikip ang dibdib niyan. Ang tagal kong nagpo-proseso bago ko sila natawagan, kasi ayaw kong ako 'yung tumawag. Tapos walang tumatawag sa akin, kaya feeling ko hindi pa nila alam."
Still, it was Vice who broke the news to their network of comedians.
Rest in peace, Chokoleit!
