Geneva Cruz shared on social media a few hours ago that she already brought the urn containing the ashes of her Mom, Marilyn Cruz.
The singer said that reality hit home when they saw the urn, and it was only then they realized her mom is truly gone.
More than a week ago, Geneva shared that her mom tested positive for COVID and had to be hospitalized.
After several days, the singer posted that her mom Marilyn is getting better, but a day after that, her condition became serious again.
At the time, Geneva asked for prayers for her mom and also staged an online concert to raise funds for her mom.
Unfortunately, the condition of Marilyn got worse until she finally succumbed to the illness.
Geneva then shared that her doctor friend told her persons infected with coronavirus often get worse after a week even if they feel better after several days.
The singer also lamented the fact that they were unable to hold a proper memorial service, nor grieve together as a family, because of the fear of COVID.
“We do not wish this kind of pain upon anyone. We look out for one another. Our mom taught us more patience, less intolerance, respect not dishonor, humility over arrogance; selflessness not selfishness; & honesty instead of deceit,” the singer wrote.
Geneva Mendoza Cruz is a multi-platinum Filipina singer and actress known for her hit songs, “Anak Ng Pasig” and “Kailan.” Born on April 2, 1976, Geneva was discovered and mentored by National Artist of the Philippines for Music, Ryan Cayabyab who formed the iconic music group Smokey Mountain, of which Geneva was a member. She just recently moved back to Manila, Philippines from The United States where she worked as a weight-loss coach for a few years.
After the death of her mom, Geneva said that she does not know how to move on and live her life without her mom. According to the singer, her mom has been physically and emotionally supporting her since she was a child. They depended on each other a lot since both of them do not have romantic partners.
Recently, Geneva Cruz’s former husband, Paco Arespacochaga, also paid his own tribute to the late Marilyn Cruz. According to Paco, Geneva’s mom treated him like a real son and he saw her as his real mom. The former Introvoys drummer also said that Marilyn continued being his “mom” even if his marriage with Geneva ended.
