Angeline Quinto shared that her Mama Susan was able to make amends with her Papa Pop before he passed away
After four days of being confined in the hospital, singer Angeline Quinto’s father, Pop Quiros, has passed away last October 1 due to kidney failure.
The confirmation came from Angeline herself during a taped interview aired on The Buzz on Sunday.
“Medyo nagkaroon po ng komplikasyon si Papa eh. Actually, maraming sakit ng nakita ‘yung doctor pero ang pinaka main cause po ng pagkamatay niya eh ‘yung kidney failure. Nung nagkita po kami sa ospital hindi na po siya nakakapagsalita eh. Pero nakakapagusap kami senyasan lang,” the singer shared.
According to Angeline, during the last days of his Papa Pop she has asked him to fight and stay strong because “magbi-birthday ako next month, November 26 po. Tapos ‘yung bahay ko po, ‘yung dream house ko malapit ng matapos, ngumingiti pa siya sakin.”
Just before her father died, the Kapamilya singer made sure that he and her biological mother Rosemaria “Susan” Mabao, whom she just met last year, are able to make amends to each other.
“Tinawag ko na po si Nanay Susan kasi simula nung nakilala ko si Nanay Susan hindi pa sila nagkikita ni Papa. Alam ko rin ‘yung mga sama ng loob ng Papa ko kay Nanay Susan kaya nung nakita ko na ganon [na si Papa], tinawag ko na si Nanay Susan para kahit po papaano ay makapagusap sila,’ related Angeline.
What’s rather sad about her parents’ long overdue reunion is that “… hindi na nakadilat si Papa nun eh. So kamay nalang niya ‘yung gumagalaw. Pero alam ko naririnig niya kami ni Nanay Susan.”
Despite her desire to stay strong, the former Star Power winner wasn’t able to mask her grief during this dark time for their family.
“Ayoko lang talaga na makita niya na malungkot ako pero sobrang dami po talagang bagay na mami-miss ko sakanya. Siya po kasi ‘yung tumayo talaga na nanay at tatay sa aming lahat,” shared she.
Angeline even added that she would forever be proud of him as her father “… Kasi kung hindi dahil sakanya hindi ako makakarating dito kung nasaan man ako ngayon. Humihingi rin ako ng tulong sakanya na sana po makayanan po naming lahat ‘yon kasi may guardian angel na kami.”
The burial of Angeline’s father is yet to be announced.
