REMEMBERING MARKY. For Glaiza de Castro, Marky's kakulitanand dance moves would be the best thing she would remember about him. It was Marky's way of proving judgmental people wrong about his trueself.

"One time," Glaiza began, "In-invite ko siya sa launch ngalbum ko. 'Tapos parang maraming nagsasabi na, ‘Ay, naku, good luck kung pumunta'yan.' Kasi hindi naman ‘yan talaga umaalis ng bahay. At saka hindi mo madalas'yan makikita kung saan-saan, e. 'Tapos nagulat ako nung night, dumating siya, so,parang hindi ko yun ine-expect."

Marky's La Lola partner Lovi Poe also shared a funnyanecdote about Marky. She related, "Kunyari gigisingin siya, puyat na kami, ‘Marky,gising ka na.' Pagtayo niya, parang sasayaw siya bigla para magising siya,'tapos kami ni Glaiza, gaganunin [makes a tickling gesture] niya yung kilikilinamin, hahawakan niya, 'tapos itataas namin. ‘Sige nga, hawakan mo!'"

Stef Prescott recounts how supportive Marky can be when shewas paired with him as her first love team partner. For her, Marky'sdown-to-earth attitude was unexpected especially from a StarStruckwinner.

"Siya yung firstka-love team ko," Steph told the SiS hosts. "Out of [StarStruck] siya, so, yun, parangsuper hindi ko alam yung gagawin ko. Hindi ko alam kung paano ba umarte ng yungtalagang...yung talagang professional na hindi na siya yung StarStruck.Sabi niya, ‘Pinagdaanan ko din ‘yan. Ganyan din yung feeling ko noong una.'"

"Kapatid talaga, kapatid," said Mart. "Tapos nasanay kasiako pag SOP. Siya lagi yung hinahanap ko kaagad. Text ako kaagad paggising ko,paggising niya magte-text sa akin, ‘Pare, nandiyan ka na ba?' 'Taposnag-aantayan kami lagi. Pag almusal, sabay kami. Rehearsal minsan...kami langdalawa palagi. Kumbaga, parang nasanay ako na kaming dalawa lagi yung buddy, e. Magkasama kami."

After saying his piece, he sighed and added, "'Tapos yun nga...Yun yung nangyari. Talagang mabigat."

Then she added, "Iniisip ko lagi na, sabi ko, 'Hindi itototoo, panaginip ito, panaginip ito.' Kasi magkasama kami, nag-taping kami,magkasama kami, so hindi ako makapaniwala, hindi ko matanggap na wala na siya.Noong nalaman ko na wala na siya, hindi ako naniwala. Tinatawagan ko siya,ilang beses ko siya tinatawagan... Sabi ko, 'Sagutin mo, sagutin mo, sagutin mo.' Pero wala, e, wala rin akong magawa."
