“I lost my heart exactly on this date when God called you home,” said model Janica Nam Floresca as she marked the second death anniversary of her late boyfriend, Franco Hernandez.
Model Janica Nam Floresca took to social media on Monday to commemorate the second death anniversary of her late boyfriend, Hashtags member Franco Hernandez.
On Instagram, Janica posted photos of her with Franco on the beach, captioned with her heart-tugging message to her “Angel”.
“I lost my heart exactly on this date when God called you home. It’s been over 2 years but it feels like just yesterday. I remember exactly how you looked like in that moment and it breaks my heart every time I see it. I remember the sound of my voice as I was screaming for help. I remember the times when I thought I heard you knock on the door and when I open it you’re not there. I remember the heaviness that came with the realization that you were truly gone forever and there‘s nothing I could do about it. I remember everything and I’ll never forget,” she said.
Franco died of drowning during the couple’s vacation in Davao Occidental after their motorized boat was hit by a strong wave, causing him and Janica to fall into the water. He was 26.
Janica went on: “But for the sake of my sanity and my mental health, I grew myself in a way I didn’t know was even possible during those traumatic times. And without a doubt you have helped me shape into the woman I am today. Because of you I know how to love deeper, grow stronger, live happier, become a fighter, appreciate life. But there are days I’m asking myself, ‘How can I stay strong?’ ‘How do I continue to smile and be happy?’ ‘How can I put my best foot forward today if I’m not feeling my best at all?' Every single day is a struggle for me and it always will be.”
Despite this, Janica said that she has to “keep going and have faith,” and expressed in confidence that she will always have Franco to help her “direct my path step by step.”
“I hope I make you so proud every single day. Thank you for always being there my love. You have shown me so much love and so much more up until now. And to love or have been loved, that is enough. You are always here in my everyday life and in every moment. It has been 2 meaningful years since the day God changed my life forever. But loving you will always be timeless. And as I turn this page, I’m wishing you a Happy second birthday in heaven my Angel. Iloveyousomuch,” she said.
