Heart Evangelista took to Instagram to pay tribute to the late senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago after the latter was awarded the Quezon Service Cross. The award is the highest civilian distinction one can receive from the government.
"Only six people have ever been given this honor, and tita Miriam is the first woman to receive it," Heart wrote on her Instagram account.
The actress added that the late senator truly deserves this prestigious award. "She was a brave and brilliant woman of service, who lovingly dedicated whole her life to others - to her family, friends, and to the country. We love you tita Miriam. Your legacy lives on," Heart posted.
Heart and senator Miriam were known to be really close. The late senator was even instrumental for Heart to meet Chiz Escudero.
