Late actor AJ Perez would have turned 26 years old on February 17.
Nearly eight years since the Philippine entertainment industry lost one of its most promising actors, AJ is still remembered by those who love and treasure him.
“My Special Tatay” star Bruno Gabriel went to his resting place to ‘personally’ greet him a happy birthday.
“Happy birthday, buddy!” he wrote on the caption of his Instagram post.
Steph Ayson, on the other hand, did not only visit her former boyfriend. She also went to his family and brought some cookies.
“From just dropping off cookies to having a good catch up. Thank you, Tito @gerryr.perez and Tita @marivic_sperez. We missed you, @gelloperez (the actor’s younger brother),” she expressed.
In an Instagram story, Gello shared a photo of Steph’s card on the cookies.
“Dear Tito Gerry, Tita Marivic, and Gello. Happy Valentine’s Day! But more importantly, happy birthday to our angel AJ. Here’s a little reminded of how sweet and loving a person AJ is. I pray every day that we never stop feeling his love,” read the card.
Gello also posted a photo of him with AJ; sharing his sweet birthday message for his older brother.
“This was your last birthday with us and it’s one of my favourite memories with you. You were always my favourite person to take pictures of whenever I had a camera with me. Thank you for being the best model/role model. Happy birthday, Kuya,” he expressed.
AJ’s former leading lady Jessie Mendiola commented on his post.
“Happy birthday AJ! We miss you,” she wrote.
AJ is fondly remembered for his angelic face and superb acting skills. His remarkable roles include his characters in “Abt Ur Luv”, “Sabel”, and “Maalaala Mo Kaya -Tsinelas” where he got a Golden Screen TV Awards for the “Outstanding Performance by an Actor in a Single Drama/Telemovie Program” category.
