The family and friends of Marry Grace Esguerra gathered this afternoon to bring the child’s remains at the Los Baños Memorial Garden in Brgy. Anos.
Marry Grace, an 11-year old peanut vendor, was found dead earlier last week at a vacant lot in Villa Carangal, Brgy. Tuntungin-Putho. This was after she was reported missing since March 1.
Fredalyn Esguerra, Marry Grace’s mother, said they believe their child is already in peace. She added that they are grateful that the suspect to her daughter’s death was already sent to jail. She also acknowledged the support shown by their relatives, friends and students from UPLB.
Classmates and teachers of Marry Grace from Paciano Elementary school also paid their respect to the remains of the child.
