Razon wrote on Instagram, "Dave not only sent audiences here into hysterics, he also demonstrated how kindness and wisdom prevail the way. He joined us at @solaireresort in a donation to the Rayomar Outreach Foundation, a nonprofit on the ground to provide aid to those affected by #TaalVolcano."

"Dave once said, 'Constantly take inventory of what’s important you.' Thank you, Dave. For the laughter and nuggets of wisdom. It is no wonder you are one of the greatest comedians of our time," she continued.
