The father of sibling actresses Angelika and Mika Dela Cruz — Ernie — passed away on Saturday, July 4, after getting hospitalized for nearly two weeks.
Angelika, who described herself as a “daddy’s girl,” shared some of her most memorable moments with her dad as she mourned his death on Instagram.
Calling him her “best friend,” the 38-year-old actress said she feels heartbroken for he left her too soon.
“Daddy, you are my best friend … ang kakampi ko sa lahat. I’m heartbroken dahil iniwan mo ko agad. I love you so much, Dad. Mabuti kang tao na maraming tinulungan. Pahinga ka na. Rest in peace Dad,” she wrote.
Although she feels broken, Angelika admitted that a part of her somehow feels happy as she knows her father is now reunited with her late brother — Edward — who died in a vehicular accident in 2010.
“Masaya ako para sayo at magkasama na kayo ni Edward. Till we meet again .. mahal na mahal kita,” she stated.
