Liza Soberano made a lot of realizations when she visited the grave of Enrique Gil’s father recently. The actor’s dad passed away in 2008 due to cancer.
At the ASAP Star Magic 25th anniversary celebration at the Araneta, Liza narrated the actor invited her to visit the grave of his dad.
She shared, “Kasi ‘yung birthday ng daddy niya May 17, ‘yung day na iyon ‘yung mom niya ginigising siya pero hindi makabangon si Quen (Enrique) dahil medyo masama ‘yung pakiramdam niya so ‘yung mom niya pumunta mag-isa. Usually ‘yung mommy niya may kasamang kapatid niya si Andie. So the next day nag-text si Quen, ‘Pwede mo ba akong samahan pumunta sa papa ko?’, kasi sabi niya ‘I feel bad I wasn’t able to go,’ so sinamahan ko po siya.”
Liza confessed that she was moved when Enrique started talking at his dad’s grave. On her Instagram post last May 19, she wrote, “Witnessed something so beautiful the other day. Words can’t even explain how much love I felt when taking this picture.”
She said that moment reminded her that life is short and that she should cherish her loved ones more.
“Medyo naging sad ako kasi kinausap niya ‘yung papa niya na as if his papa was just there. Parang na-realize ko kung gaano kabilis ang buhay and how we should appreciate things in life. Siyempre ako I have a dad and I fight with him a lot, siyempre normal lang naman ‘yun pero you know ngayon nare-realize ko swerte pala ako kasi may papa ako and si Quen wala na siyang papa,” she said.
