“Mahal na mahal kita Lola. Maraming salamat po sa lahat ng biyaya, pag gabay at pag aruga. Nabuo ako, dahil sa pagmamahal mo. Hindi kita makakalimutan. Nasa puso at nasa isip kita habangbuhay. Ahlabyu La…,” he wrote as caption.

John Prats posted, “Mamimiss ka po naming lahat. Lalo na po ang pag aalaga at pag papakain nyo sa amin sa set. Mamimiss ko yung mga kwento nyo sa amin. Mahal na mahal ka po naming lahat Lola Flora. Maraming salamat po sa mga naituro nyo sa amin. Napakaswerte ko at nakatrabaho at nakasama ko kayo. Rest in Peace po.”

Jhong Hilario is also thankful, writing: “Rest in peace Lola Flora. Maraming salamat po.”
