Iza Calzado took to Instagram to commemorate her late father’s death anniversary last November 11. The actress shared an old photo which she revealed was one of the last photos they took together.
Her father, Lito Calzado, died on November 11, 2011.
The 40-year-old actress said that the day her father passed was also the time she lost her first great love. Iza shared that she still feels the late director’s presence even if it has been more than a decade since he left.
“This is probably one of our last photos together before he got very sick and was in and out of the hospital. You always had a way of making me feel safe, protected, and loved. That’s why I know you’re still looking after me from beyond this physical realm,” she shared.
The Darna actress updated her father with what’s been happening in her life through the post. She shared how she is slowly seeing the similarities between him and his grandchild.
“Went for a scan today for your grandchild and all is well. Baby is happy and healthy and moving so much. Mana sa’yo, kick ball change ng kick ball change sa belly ko. Gives me so much joy just thinking about dancing with this baby, knowing your gift is being passed on to our child,” she noted.
The actress also remembered the birthday of her brother, Juan Carlos, who also passed away.
“Also want to wish another angel, our baby brother, Juan Carlos, a happy birthday! He would have been 34 today. Love you, JC,” she added.
Iza’s father died of liver cancer and was only 65 at the time of his death.
