“A very intimate Father and son moment between Ice and Daddy Dick this morning as they share their last moments together,” she wrote on Facebook.
“‘I love you, pogi’ this is what Daddy fondly tells Ice. Ice would say I love you back then sing him his favorite songs. But today is special because Ice finally got the chance to tell daddy something that he’s never told him before…As he was standing by his side, he held his hand and said. ‘Thank you, daddy…for being the BEST dad,'” wrote Liza.
“Thank you for loving me like your own daughter. Wag po kayong mag-alala, aalagaan ko po at mamahalin ko po si Ice, and the whole family like the way you loved them.Mahal na mahal na mahal ka namin.”
(Don’t you worry, I will take care and love Ice and the whole family the way you loved them. We love you.)
