Vice Ganda expressed deep sadness over the passing of comedian Chokoleit. In an interview with ABS-CBN News, Vice remarked that what breaks his heart is the fact that he lost a dear friend. 

"I lost a friend, that's even harder than losing a workmate. Si Chokoleit kasi ano eh malaki kasi tiwala sa akin non, he had faith in me. He has been so proud of me. Tuwing mag-uusap kami, lagi niyang pinapaalam sa akin kung paano siya, kung gaano siya ka-proud sa nangyayari sa buhay ko," Vice stated in the interview.

According to the It's Showtime host, they do discuss their personal lives with each other. "Hinahayaan niya akong i-touch din 'yung buhay niya. Hinahayaan niya akong makaalam din sa buhay niya. Ganon ka lalim 'yung pagtingin namin sa isa't isa. Hinahayaan niya akong pakiaalaman ang personal niyang buhay at nakikinig siya sa sinasabi at 'yun ang naa-appreciate ko sa aming dalawa," he said. 

Chokoleit died last March 9 in Abra due to pulmonary edema and heart attack.
