Marlo posted an emotional message for his mother on Instagram.
Actor-singer Marlo Mortel’s mother Merlie Pamintuan has passed away after years of battling cancer. Marlo confirmed the sad news on Friday, August 24, through an Instagram post.
“Mommy. I can’t believe this is happening. I’m in so much pain. I don’t want to, but I have to let you go. All you ever did was love me and take care of me. I’m sorry for all my shortcomings but thank you for fighting, until your last breath you waited for me.
“You were almost gone the other night but when I kept on talking to you, you responded and was able to stay with us for 2 more days. We were able to say our goodbyes. But this isn’t goodbye, I know you’re watching over us now. Kahit mahirap, kakayanin namin to ni daddy. Sobrang hirap ng pinagdaanan mo and you may rest now. My love for you is never ending. Si Jesus na ang bahala sayo at sa amin ni daddy. MAHAL NA MAHAL KITA,” he wrote on the photo’s caption.

It will be remembered that a few days ago, Marlo asked his followers to pray for his mother whose condition was worsening.
It was in 2015 when the actor first revealed that his mother was battling breast cancer.
