MANILA, Philippines -- The Quizon family will be celebrating the 84th birthday of their patriarch, the late King of Philippine Comedy Dolphy, on Wednesday.

In an interview with "Umagang Kay Ganda" on Wednesday, Dolphy's grandson Rowell Quizon said the family is planning to gather and celebrate Dolphy's birthdy at the Heritage Park in Taguig.

"Bale mamaya sa Heritage kung saan siya binurol (at nilibing) doon namin ise-celebrate ang birthday niya, kami ng family at iba pang malalapit na kaibigan ni lolo Dolphy," Quizon said.

Quizon said they used to celebrate his birthday every year at Dolphy's home.

"Yun ang nakaka-miss doon kasi every year sa bahay nya ay sama-sama lahat ng pamilya. 'Yun ang nakaka-miss sobra ...kasi hindi na namin siya mayayakap," he added.

Asked of the other things he misses about Dolphy, Quizon said: "Yung pagiging maalalahanin niya, y'ung kinakamusta ka niya at very supportive siya at sa lahat ng bagay tatanungin ka niya 'pagbutihan mo yan.' So 'yan ang mami-miss ko."

To remember his grandfather forever, Quizon, like many of the other family members, also got a tattoo of a smiling Dolphy on his right arm.
