MANILA, Philippines- Every November, we remember our departed loved ones.

We remember the greatness of their lives and the memories we had with them.

In commemoration of All Souls' Day, let us recall the some of the big personalities in the entertainment industry who died last year.

DOLPHY -  Of course number one in our list is the King of Comedy Dolphy who died July 11, 2012.
