She slept peacefully, and little did she know she would wake up in heaven.🤍. . Rest well in heaven, ama!🤍 You don’t have to wait anymore sa sunrise ug sunset. I guess in heaven sun is always shining. ☀️ I still remember pag kinakamusta kita you always say na “naghulat sa pagsaka sa adlaw ug nagpaabot na mu gabii. Para ugma napud.” You always taught us that tomorrow is another day. Thank you, ama for taking care of us, unconditionally. First photo symbolizes the five of us @kamchiu @twinklechiu_ #williamchiujr #me @alfa1charlie 🤍 Played Yue Liang Dai Biao Wo De Xin coz I know that is one of your favorite songs and you always smile whenever I perform a chinese song.❤️ I will miss you ama. Visiting Cebu will never be the same again. 😔😢💔. . Felt hard to say goodbye. Felt even harder that this happened in this kind of situation. 😔 We were not able to fly there to whisper our last goodbye. 🤍. . thank you to my cousins @tinavchiu @ratchiu for the live video since yesterday. 🤍 𝑹𝒆𝒔𝒕 𝑰𝒏 𝑷𝒆𝒂𝒄𝒆 𝑨𝒎𝒂. #85

"Rest well in heaven, ama! You don’t have to wait anymore sa sunrise ug sunset. I guess in heaven sun is always shining," wrote Kim.

"I still remember pag-kinakamusta kita, you always say na 'naghulat sa pagsaka sa adlaw ug nagpaabot na mu gabii. Para ugma napud,'" she continued. "You always taught us that tomorrow is another day. Thank you, ama for taking care of us, unconditionally."

The "Love Thy Woman" star also expressed sadness that she wasn't able to see her grandmother for the last time due to travel restrictions imposed by the government to curb the COVID-19 pandemic. 

"I will miss you ama. Visiting Cebu will never be the same again," she said.

"Felt hard to say goodbye. Felt even harder that this happened in this kind of situation. We were not able to fly there to whisper our last goodbye," she added.

Aside from Kim, her sister Lakam Chiu also paid tribute to their "amah," whom she described as her "strength" and "source of inspiration."

 

 

"You have taught me what is life is all about. You’ve given me courage to fight and to be firm," she said.

"Thank you for your unconditional love. I will always be forever grateful to have you as my mama/mommy/ama to me and my family.... Ma, like what you’ve always told me. I miss you and I love you... I love you forever... May you rest in peace," she added.
