Sa wakas... Ako naman🤣😂 I always wanted children. Wasn’t sure it would ever happen. Twins? Boy + Girl? Never ever thought. How I wish my Mom were around. So today, I honor my mother Celia. She was working in Hongkong then as a singer, they were a big family of meager means. She worked to send all her 6 siblings through school, forgetting her own dream to become a lawyer. She made a life for me and my brother, started her own company that grew to be one of the largest in the country, built her dream house with a pool and my very own pink room. She cooked so well, was an interior designer, always dressed to the nines, gave us the best of most things in life. She had to bury her own son, my younger brother when he was 19. And in his honor, she lived her #BestLife by going back to school at almost 60. She wasn’t perfect. But she was all of these good things. She was only 64 when she passed, from medical negligence of some doctor (who to this day I want to strangle). Gone too soon, this Renaissance Woman. I offer her my endless love and my commitment to care for my brothers, keep our family tight and guided. I offer her my own children Pepe and Pilar to be under her watch from Heaven. May they grow up to be all good things she was. Till we all meet again.💚💋🎂

Korina’s mother passed away at 62 in 2004, the same year that she lost her father, Ramon Sanchez Sr., at 85.

“I offer her my endless love and my commitment to care for my brothers, keep our family tight and guided. I offer her my own children Pepe and Pilar to be under her watch from Heaven. May they grow up to be all good things she was. Till we all meet again,” she said.
