Anna Lyn Santos Manalo, the estranged wife of comedian Jose Manalo, was finally laid to rest.
On Instagram, Myki, daughter of Anna Lyn and Jose, shared a video clip of the internment rite held last Jan. 18.
The video showed mourners releasing white balloons into the air in memory of Anna Lyn.
In the caption, Myki wrote: “Such a beautiful day to bring your Earthly body to rest. Watch over us from the top of the world, Mommy! We love you very much!”
During the wake, Myki and her other siblings posed in front of the remains of their mom smiling.
She wrote: “Mommy gave birth to us five. I’d like to believe that her biggest legacy and the most treasured gift she will leave us here on Earth is the gift of love we have for each other. Thank you for teaching us how to love – specifically by loving us all beyond words, by loving us unconditionally until your last breath. You dedicated your life to us. We will take care of each other from here on. Don’t worry about us, Mommy. We will all make you proud. Run free and rest well. I love you so much. We love you very much.”
“PS. I know you wouldn’t want to see us crying, so here we are.”
Anna Lyn, 54, passed away on Jan. 14. Her body was cremated on Jan. 16.
