Cherie Gil’s Son Raphael Rogoff Remembers Late Mom In A Touching Tribute

Raphael Rogoff’s Heartfelt Love Letter to Late Mom Cherie Gil

CHERIE GIL – Raphael Rogoff, Cherie Gil’s son, expressed his longing for his mom in an open letter he made two weeks after the actress passed away.

La Primera Contravida Cherie Gil’s passing on August 5, 2022, shocked the Philippine showbiz industry. She rose to fame as Lavinia Arguelles in the blockbuster film Bituing Walang Ningning.

Many of her devoted fans lament the passing of their prized idol. But her death is particularly more painful for her children. They lost a kind-hearted and supportive mother. She has 2 children with Israeli violinist Roni Rogoff: Bianca and Raphael. Her other son Jay Eigenmann is her child with Pinoy actor Leo Martinez.

Raphael Rogoff wrote a heartfelt tribute to his mother on Instagram last weekend. He also uploaded a couple of throwback photos with her.

Raphael began his IG post by saying, “You were a gift to this world. You touched every life that you came across, whether through the silver screen, on stage, or in person.”

“To your most prized fans, you were Cherie Gil, La Primera Contravida. To some, Evangeline Rose; or perhaps Cheech. To me, simply, Momma–my homie. What a luxury.”

“You were a light that filled every room with pure warmth and bliss. Your laugh, wit, and humor, resonated deeply with all who had the pleasure of basking in it.”

Raphael Rogoff then went on to share what his mom Cherie taught him. He said the award-winning actress inspired him to live his life “freely” and “with no care in the world.”

“You were the life of every party and the party to my life. What I’d give for just another minute to spend with you — no amount of time would ever be enough…”

“What I’d do to see you crack that unforgettable smile of yours; the one that radiated with so much joy.”

Raphael is clearly hurting but he promised her to continue on with his life. He also thanked his mom for the greatest gift he received from her.
