Saying that Enrique got emotional in a previous interview when asked about Lilia, Liza said, “Kasi si tita Lilia, she’s really like a lola to us. Sobrang sweet ‘nung matandang ‘yun. We really, really love tita Lilia kasi ‘nung Forevermore (2014), sobrang naging close namin. Siya (referring to Enrique) naging close niya sa Amorosa (2012) pa lang so it really affected him. And, he really has a big heart for old people.”
