Claudine then went on to describe how special and deep their relationship is.
She wrote, "Thank you for always calling me, texting me, and showing me that you love my kids and I. My prayer for you last night is the same prayer I pray for my kids. May you always be covered with the blood of Jesus and may no weapon formed against you shall prosper. I thank God and you for being an amazing daughter, apo, sister, friend, and actress."
