Bacolod Mayor Evelio Leonardia offered his condolences to the family of veteran actress Susan Roces who passed away Friday.

Roces’ death left a void in the hearts of millions of her fans and admirers who followed her showbiz career that spanned almost seven decades, said Leonardia.

“On a personal note, Ms. Susan Roces is a co-alumni at La Consolacion College-Bacolod. She was also a student of my elder sister, Ninfa. Growing up in our beloved city, she brought honors to Bacolod as she embarked on a movie career when she was only 14 years old,” according to the mayor. (

The Queen of Philippine Movies, he added, was a very warm and endearing person despite her celebrity status.

“As she departs to the great beyond to be with our mighty Creator, I am certain that Senator Grace Poe and her children, will be comforted by the love and prayers of the millions who mourn her passing,” said Leonardia.
