It is a great loss for the music and movie industry. But still his music will continue to linger in our ears.

As a fan of Francis M I remember him as a patriot and a true blooded Filipino. Why? Because during the time of new wave and foreign hits he injected his vision of nationality through his song and his hit single on his album 'YO!' was the "Mga Kababayan Ko" or translated as "My Fellow Countrymen". That's how I would remember him.
