MANILA - Sheryl Ann Reyes, the wife of former actor Wowie de Guzman, was laid to rest on Saturday shortly after her baby daughter was baptized.

The funeral, attended by Senator Edgardo "Sonny" Angara and actress Gladys Reyes among others, was held at the Lubao Memorial Park in Pampanga.

Speaking with ABS-CBN News' Gracie Rutao, De Guzman expressed his gratitude to those who continue to send their prayers and support for their family.

De Guzman now faces the task of raising his child with Reyes, Alex Rafeal, alone. Their baby was born just last March 27.

After the tragic and sudden passing of his wife, an emotional De Guzman recalled his last moments with Reyes, and how he repeatedly asked doctors to revive her.

"Sobrang bilis talaga, hindi namin alam nangyari. Natutulog lang kami tapos tumayo lang siya, pumunta sa C.R. tapos bumalik, humiga. Tapos para siyang nagchoke, tapos 'yun na," he shared.

Reyes died after taking a pain reliever on Saturday (April 26) night, following months of suffering from erratic blood pressure.
