Marlo Mortel’s mom Merilie Pamintuan passed away today, August 24, after a four-year long battle with breast cancer.
The Kapamilya singer-actor took to Instagram to share his anguish over what happened.
“I can’t believe this is happening. I’m in so much pain. I don’t want to, but I have to let you go,” he wrote. “Thank you for fighting, until your last breath you waited for me.”
Marlo furthered that he knows this isn’t a final goodbye, because she will still be watching over him and their family.
“Kahit mahirap, kakayanin namin ‘to ni Daddy. Sobrang hirap ng pinagdaanan mo, and you may rest now. My love for you is never ending. Si Jesus na ang bahala sayo at sa amin ni daddy. MAHAL NA MAHAL KITA,” he said.
Condolence to Marlo and his family.
