Awra Briguela mourns death of his Tatay Victor

Awra Briguela is grieving the death of his grandfather, who passed away last May 16 due to heart complications.

The actor took to Instagram last weekend to share a series of photos with his late Tatay Victor. In the caption, Awra recalled the last few moments he had with his Tatay in the hospital.

 

“Hindi ko lubos maisip lahat ng nangyari. Bago ka dalhin sa ospital nangako ka sa’kin, nag-promise ka sa’kin na magpapagaling ka. Kinabukasan agad kitang dinalaw. Pagdalaw ko malakas ka pa, sumenyas ka sa’kin na okay ka na uuwi na tayo. Bakit kahapon at kanina biglang naging irregular vitals mo, biglang bumigay puso mo,” he recalled.

He continued, “Ilang beses ako lumapit sa’yo at hinawakan ang kamay mo habang kinakausap ka. Bakit hindi ka na nasagot? Nangako ka sa’kin, ‘di ba? Nag-promise ka na uuwi tayo, ‘di ba? Sabi mo sa’kin bago ka dalhin sa hospital ‘Wag mo akong pababayaan.’ Ginawa ko naman ‘yun tatay, sabi ko sa’yo ako bahala sa lahat. May pangako pa ‘ko sa inyo ni nanay.”

Awra said it was painful to see the person who taught him how to be strong pass away.

“Sobrang sakit makita kang nahihirapan pero mas masakit malaman na kami ay iniwan mo na. Lagi kitang nasa dasal. Lagi kong hiling na maging okay ka. Kahit ako na lang ‘yung mahirapan ‘wag na kayo ni nanay okay lang sa’kin. Simula bata ako ikaw ‘yung nagturo sa’kin maging matapang at maging siga. Kaya noong nahihirapan ka binabalik ko sa’yo ‘yun sabi ko sayo ‘Matapang ka, kaya mo ‘yan’ alam kong ginawa mo lahat, alam kong lumaban ka hanggat kaya mo,” he said.

 

“Sobrang sakit tatay ko hindi ko pa natutupad pangako ko sa’’yo. Pero ‘yung sinabi mo sa’kin na ‘Wag mo ‘kong pababayaan,’ kay nanay ko nalang gagawin. Aalagaan ko si nanay. Lagi mo sana kaming gabayan. ‘Wag na ‘wag mo kaming pababayaan. Alam kong may rason ang Panginoon bakit nangyayari ‘to. Lahat kakayanin ko kasi alam kong kasama kita,” he said.

“Siguro tatay oras mo na talaga kasi kitang kita naming lahat kung gaano ka katapang. Ilang beses kang lumaban pero bumigay na talaga ‘yung katawan mo, eh. Sa totoo lang, hindi ako makapaniwala, hindi ko alam gagawin ng wala ka. Pero kailangan kong maging matapang at matatag para kay Nanay."

 

Awra ended his post by honoring his Tatay Victor, writing, “Alam kong alam mo kung gaano kita kamahal. Sobrang mahal na mahal ka naming lahat. Salamat sa lahat lahat, tatay."

"Hinding-hindi kita makakalimutan. Salamat sa lahat ng suporta at pagmamahal na binigay mo,” he ended.

We are sending you our love and condolences, Awra. ❤️
