Joined by other supporters, Susan and Senator Grace also offered flowers and prayers to the King of Philippine movies.
“Mahalaga para sa amin, sa aming pamilya itong araw ng pagsilang ni Fernando Poe Jr. He will be 79 this year,” Susan said in an interview.
“Maraming salamat sa pagmamahal ninyo at kahit wala na si Ronnie [FPJ] e patuloy niyo siyang naaalala,” she added.
Meanwhile, the Patayin Sa Sindak Si Barbara star thanked Coco Martin and the top-rating teleserye Ang Probinsyano for continuing the legacy that her husband started.
“Salamat din sa pagtanglilik niyo sa 'Ang Probinsyano' na ginawa pa ng kanyang ama, na ginawa niya ang ikalawang version at ngayon ay patuloy na sinusubaybayan sa telerserye,” Susan expressed.
Her daughter and current Philippine Senator Grace also commended the show for helping others through providing jobs for people in the showbiz industry.
“Kasi importante na kapag gumawa ka ng pelikula o ng isang television show, unang una may kabuluhan, may kinalaman sa lipunan at mabigyang ng tamang kaugalian ang bawat Pilipino at higit sa lahat, mabigyang ng trabaho ang mga tao sa industriya,” the Senator said.
