Angeline Quinto marked the 68th birthday of her late father, Potenciano “Pop” Quiroz, by taking the time out to visit his grave this Wedneday, May 29.
Through Instagram, the 29-year-old singer shared photos of her visit as she wished her dad a happy birthday.
“Happy Happy Birthday Papa. I love you very much,” she wrote in a caption.
Mr. Quiroz passed away due to kidney failure on October 1, 2013.
In an interview on “The Buzz”, Angeline, who grew up with Quiroz and her foster mother Sylvia "Mama Bob" Quinto, said that she wouldn’t be who and where she is today if it wasn’t for her doting father.
“Sobrang daming bagay ang mami-miss ko sa kanya. Siya ang tumayong nanay at tatay sa aming lahat. Nung unang araw na namatay si Papa, napanaginipan ko siya agad. Alam kong masaya na si Papa ngayon kasi naka-smile siya sa akin [sa panaginip],” she said.
“Sobrang ipinagmamalaki ko siya bilang tatay ko. Kung hindi dahil sa kanya hindi ako makakarating kung nasaan ako ngayon,” she added.
