“I Alexander Joseph S. Babao, son of Caridad Sanchez Babao, was shocked by the article published by my sister which was done without permission, violating the privacy, legacy and honor of my Mother.
“My Mom has a mild cognitive handicap that goes with aging. But it is unfair for her to be disrespected like this.
“Under my care, she remains very physically fit, a source of wisdom, strength and blessing to me whenever we have our late night mother and son conversations.
“I thank the public who still continue to show their support, love and respect for my mother. However I question the opportunistic timing of its publication by my sister,” Joseph stated.
