Celebrity siblings Rodjun and Rayver Cruz announced on Saturday, February 2 that their mother Elizabeth Cruz, also known as Melody Beth Cruz had p********** at 64.
Reports say that their mom d*** peacefully in a hospital after weeks of suffering pancreatic c*****, which she apparently only learned about during her recent trip to Singapore.
In a lengthy message from Rayver, he expressed how awed he was by his mother for having put up a good fight prior to succumbing to her illness.
Rayver said: “Maraming salamat sa lahat, mama. Ngayon makakapagpahinga ka na sa isang napakagandang lugar kung saan ay pwede kang sumayaw at kumanta kasama ang mga anghel at ang ating Panginoong Diyos.
“Mahal na mahal kita, mama. Palagi kang mananatili sa puso at isipan ko kahit na among mangyari. Paalam, aming reyna,” he added.
Meanwhile, Rodjun was just as forthcoming with his overwhelming emotions after losing his mother all so suddenly.
“Sobrang sakit at hirap tanggapin na hindi na kita mayayakap, mahahalikan araw-araw, at maririnig ang malambing mong boses at makikita ang ngiti mo na nakakapawi ng kahit anong problema.
“Pero kailangan namin tatagan ang loob naming magkakapatid dahil alam ko na sobrang saya [mo] na ngayon sa heaven kapiling ni Lord God,” Rayver said.
During the wake, Rodjun and Rayver performed a dance number. Their performance took place on Thursday, February 7.
One of the videos shows Tirso Cruz III dancing with the siblings.
