After former President Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III’s passing due to renal disease secondary to diabetes at the age of 61 last June 24, Kris Aquino has yet to share the story behind her complicated relationship with her older brother for the past few years. After not being on good terms since 2018, Kris revealed through social media that they finally reconciled in May this year. For PNoy’s 40th day on August 2, she dedicated her latest post along with a video from his wake.
On Instagram she wrote, “Maraming nilalaman ang puso ko na gusto kong ibahagi sa inyong lahat… sure ako marami ang nagtatataka bakit wala kayong nakitang post, napanuod na interview, o nakitang moment na ako ang nagsalita on behalf of our family. But, now is still not the right time for me… naghihintay pa ko ng ‘go signal’ from him— I know my brother will find a way to let ‘bunso’ know when it’s time for all of you to hear the story from me of our journey— simply because all of you are a very special part of our journey, one I believe is a continuing one.”
The 50-year-old host and actress also thanked the public for their outpouring of support for their family during their time of mourning.
She wrote, “Sa inyo pong lahat, maraming salamat dahil pinaramdam nyo sa aming apat, kay Ate, Pinky, Viel, at sa ‘kin na hindi kami nag-iisa sa aming paniniwala that we were truly blessed to have Noy as our brother— na habang buhay naming IPAGMAMALAKI, PASASALAMATAN, HAHANAP HANAPIN, at MAMAHALIN.
“Though still so painful, we know how blessed we were to have been born as the children of Ninoy and Cory, and the sisters of Noynoy Aquino. ”
Kris also mentioned that her post coincides with the 12th death anniversary of her mom former President Corazon Aquino who passed away at 76 years old in 2009 due to colon cancer.
