Nagpaabot ng pakikiramay si Sunshine Cruz sa mga naiwang kapamilya ni Melody “Beth” Cruz, ina ng magkapatid na Rodjun at Rayver Cruz, na pumanaw ngayong Sabado ng umaga, February 2.
Si Sunshine ay pamangkin ni Beth, na binawian ng buhay dahil sa sakit niyang pancreatic cancer.
Sa kanyang Facebook post ngayong Sabado, ibinahagi ni Sunshine kung paano niya naging paboritong tiyahin si Mommy Beth.
Ayon sa kanya, ito ang kanyang kasa-kasama sa kanyang zumba sessions.
Saad ni Sunshine, “To my favorite and sweetest Tita who’s a second Mom to me, Tita Beth, I can’t imagine doing zumba without you.
“I do not know if I can sing 'I love the nightlife' without shedding a tear.
"This is really painful and devastating not just for me but to the whole Cruz family.
"You have always been the life of the party, only had good words to say, the fashionista in our family.
"Your voice, dance, smile and positivity will be missed. You fought a good fight Tita Beth. No more pain now.
"Don’t worry Tita, we will always be here for Omar, RJ and Raymond.
"I will miss you, we will terribly miss you. I love you so much. Rest now my Tita Beth.”
Itinuturing namang pangalawang ina ni Dianne Medina ang dapat sana'y magiging mother-in-law na niya ngayong taon kapag maikasal na siya sa kanyang fiancé na si Rodjun sa Disyembre.
Sa mensahe niya sa Facebook, sinabi ni Dianne na inaasahan sana niyang magiging masaya ang taong ito dahil sa bagong yugto ng kanyang buhay kasama si Rodjun at ang pamilya nito, at hindi niya inaasahan ang biglaang pagkamatay ng ina ni Rodjun.
Sabi ni Dianne, “I lost my Mom 8 years ago. And now, I lost my second Mom today.
"More than the wedding, aside from getting married in December, I so looked forward to finally calling her my 'MAMA' as that’s what she’s always been to me.
"I thought this year was going to be a year of preparations—getting ready for the wedding, for married life, for hopefully my own motherhood—but no one can ever be prepared for any loss, especially a loss like this, especially a loss of a person who is full to the brim with so much enthusiasm and energy and light and love.
"I thought this year will be the start of a new chapter of our lives—not just for RJ and me, but also for her and me, and also for the 3 us (it’s always the 3 of us going out on dates and I never minded because I love her and RJ is a proud Mama’s boy and that’s one of the things I love about him).
"Now it’s just hard to think of life without you, Tita Melody Beth Cruz you know how much I love you.
"Sobrang sakit talaga.
"You are my 2nd Mom, my bestfriend, my ka chikahan, my sumbungan, trio tayo sa lahat nila RJ tayong tatlo talaga ang magkasama kahit date night namin ni RJ hindi pwedeng wala ka.
"I know you’re in a better place now with my Mommy. Celebrating your eternal life and happiness with our Lord Jesus Christ! No more pain tita. Mahal kita, Mama Beth!"
Labis ding ipinagluluksa ng magkapatid na Rodjun at Rayver ang biglaang pagyao ng kanilang pinakamamahal na ina.
