"It seems like just yesterday we were going on our adventures together, chatting, lunching, and just enjoying each other’s company," she said.

⁣"You owe me an Adulting 101, Tita," she continued, referring to her popular video series on her YouTube channel, Love Marie Escudero. "But it’s okay because I remember every single lesson you’ve taught me until today. Of course, because you were my ultimate mentor and source of guidance.⁣"
