"Grabe ang pinag daanan mo during your senior years pero you still worked hard for your family (us) I feel sad and happy," he wrote.
"Sad kasi I will never see you again, mga wisdom words mo, korni jokes, happy bondings, and pagkurot sa aking pisngi hanggang mamula. Happy ako kasi you have done everything you could to make us feel loved the way you know how, your struggles are over. You fought your battles silently. Magkikita na kayo ni Mama sa kabilang buhay," he added.
The family has yet to disclose details on her death as of Friday afternoon, but her other grandson Mike Gibran had earlier said she was at the hospital during her birthday last March.
