“Daddy, rest ka na (you rest now). No more pain. Thank you for loving me like your own daughter. Wag po kayong mag-alala, aalagaan ko po at mamahalin ko po si Ice (Do not worry, I will love and take care of ice), and the whole family like the way you loved them. Mahal na mahal na mahal ka namin (We love you very much),” Diño added.
