Makikita kung gaano naging mabuting tao ang yumaong aktor na si AJ Perez sa dami ng mga taong bumisita sa unang araw pa lang ng burol niya sa kapilya ng La Salle Greenhills, San Juan City, kagabi, Abril 17.

Ang 18-taong-gulang na si AJ—Antonello Joseph Sarte Perez sa tunay na buhay—ay pumanaw noong madaling araw ng Linggo, Abril 17, dulot ng isang vehicular accident.

Ayon sa initial report, nagtamo ng multiple head injuries ang batang aktor. Pero base sa autopsy report, tumama sa heart at lungs ni AJ ang kanyang ribs dahil sa lakas ng impact ng pagkakabangga ng kanilang sasakyan.

Ang aksidente ay nangyari habang pauwi na si AJ, kasama ang kanyang amang si Mr. Gerardo Perez, mula sa isang show sa Dagupan, Pangasinan. (CLICK HERE to read related article.)

Bagamat mararamdamang nasa state of shock pa rin ang ama ni AJ, ito ang personal na umaasikaso sa mga taong dumarating.

Makikita ang matinding lungkot sa namumugtong mga mata ni Ginoong Perez dulot ng pagkawala ng kanyang panganay na anak.

Katuwang naman ni Mr. Perez sa pagsalubong sa mga taong nakikiramay ang kanyang inang si Victoria at nakababatang kapatid na si Gelo.

Kasama sa mga unang nagpakita ng pakikiramay ang mga kasamahan ni AJ sa all-male group na Gigger Boys na sina Angelo Patrimonio, kasama ang kanyang amang basketbolista na si Alvin Patrimonio; Dino Imperial, at Chris Gutierrez.

Nakiramay din agad sa pamilya ni AJ ang mga kasamahan nito sa Star Magic, ang talent management arm ng ABS-CBN. Bakas na bakas ang lungkot sa kanilang mga mukha at kilos.

Kabilang dito sina Rodjun Cruz at ang kasintahan niyang si Dianne Medina, Eda Nolan, Albey Casino, Charee Pineda, Martin del Rosario, John James Uy, at Empress Schuck.

Dumating din ang dating katambal ni AJ sa Sabel na si Jessy Mendiola at ang direktor nilang si Don Cuaresma.

Nandoon din ang dati niyang kasama sa Agua Bendita na si Matteo Guidicelli at ang ABS-CBN president na si Charo Santos-Concio.

Sa hanay ng mga talent manager at prodyuser, nakitang nakikiramay sina Manny Valera, Leo Dominguez, Regal Entertainment matriarch Lily Monteverde, at ang anak nitong si Roselle Monteverde-Teo.

Hindi man makapunta sa mismong burol, inihayag ng chairman emeritus ng Star Magic, na si Johnny Manahan (Mr. M), ang kaniyang pakikisimpatya sa pamamagitan ng statement na ipinadala sa ilang miyembro ng press, kasama na ang PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal).

Kasalukuyang nasa Amerika si Mr. M para sa taunang concert tour ng Star Magic.

Nakasaad sa statement: "AJ’s death comes as a shock to all of us. We are saddened that he was cut down at such a tender age. We share the deep felt sorrow of his family and will miss him."

Sa April issue ng YES! magazine, isa si AJ sa mga napili ng top executives ng ABS-CBN bilang "The Next Big Thing," o mga stars ng network na magiging tanyag sa darating na tatlong taon. Isa sa mga nakapanayam ng YES! si Mr. M. (CLICK HERE to read related article)

SHOCKED AND SADDENED. Samantala, hindi man pormal na nagpaunlak ng panayam ang pamilya ni AJ, isang press statement naman ang kanilang inilabas kagabi, ilang sandali matapos ang misa na inihandog para kay AJ.

Sa pamamagitan ng tiyahin ni AJ na si Ma. Rosario P. Ortiz, ito ang inihayag ng pamilya sa media:

"Our family is in shock and deeply saddened by his sudden and tragic death.

"We wish to extend our gratitude to ABS-CBN regional network group for their immediate support and assistance.

"We also wish to thank our relatives, friends, and supporters of AJ for all their prayer and words of encouragement.

"We are still waiting for the release of the official report from the police on this fatal accident.

"We request everyone to continue to pray for the repose of his soul and strength and consolation to the family he left behind."

Ayon kay Bb. Ortiz, magkakaroon ng espesyal na oras para makita ng mga masugid na tagahanga ni AJ Perez ang kanilang idolo. Subalit pag-uusapan pa muna raw ito ng pamilya.

Bukas naman para sa public viewing ang mga labi ni AJ ngayong araw, Abril 18, mula 11 a.m. hanggang 2 p.m. at 9 p.m. hanggang 12 midnight.

Mananatili ang burol ni AJ hanggang sa bandang tanghali ng Martes, Abril 19.

Walang pang tiyak na detalye ng paglilibing kay AJ.
