The league held a moment of silence and a final buzzer shortly before the NLEX-Magnolia tussle at the Big Dome for the former Iloilo Megavolt, San Miguel Beerman, and Welcoat Dragon. PBA Commissioner Willie Marcial remembered Mente as a lively and jovial personality, whose infectious energy poured in and out of the court. "Nakakalungkot kasi masayahin tao yun eh. Pag nakakasama namin sa game out of town mahilig kumanta, masayahing tao nakakalungkot sinapit niya ganung kalagayan."

Father’s Day without the patriarch: Sonny pays tribute to Edong Angara

In a family, the most celebrated parent-to-children relationships are that of a mother to her son, and a father to her daughter -- hence the idea of a mama's boy and a papa's girl.
