The mother of actor-singer Marlo Mortel has passed away last Friday after four years of battling breast cancer.

Mortel admitted in an interview with ABS-CBN that he was not ready for his mother’s passing as he was still hoping for a miracle that she would recover from her illness.

“Pinilit ko lang siyang kausapin nang kausapin kasi, I don’t want to let her go pa dahil hindi pa ko ready, and umaasa pa din ako na may miracle pa rin,” ABS-CBN quoted Mortel as saying.

Mortel also shared that his mother, Merlie Pamintuan, told him to continue loving his job as her final piece of advice to him.

“Ang bilin talaga niya is, mahalin ko ang work ko kaya nalulungkot ako ngayon na wala, wala na kong babalitaan na mommy ngayon,” he said.

Before she took her last breath, Mortel said that Pamintuan wrote her a last thank you note for everything he has done for their family.

Mortel took to social media to share some last memories with his mother.

He posted a photo on his Instagram with a heartbreaking message dedicated to her.

“Mommy. 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. All you ever did was love me and take care of me. I’m sorry for all my shortcomings but thank you for fighting, until your last breath you waited for me,” he captioned the photo.

In a separate Instagram post, he shared his last text conversation he had with his mother.

“My last conversations with Mommy. I’m still gonna do my best to make you proud, mi. It’s so hard but I know you want me to succeed. I’ll still do everything for you and daddy,” he said.

Other celebrities, such as Jed Madela, Sunshine Cruz, Darren Espanto, Gretchen Ho, Teejay Marquez, Ylona Garcia, Sarah Carlos and Karen Reyes, have extended their condolences to Mortel for his loss on social media.
