Despite of the heartbreaking loss of Rico J. Puno, his daughter, Tosca Camille Puno gets overwhelmed by the love and support his dad's supporters give their family.
According to PEP.ph, Tosca learned how her father's followers' sympathy can lessen the pain they are facing right now.
“Totoo po pala yung sinasabi nila na mas gumagaan kapag maraming nakikiramay, maraming dumadamay, maraming nagmamalasakit."
She added how she gets amazed that her dad is not just a famous artist but also a well-loved and well-respected person.
"And ang nakakatuwa po, na nakaka-proud po, kasi alam naming sikat si Daddy, pero di namin na-realize na ganun siya ka-well-loved, well-respected, and he’s very big po pala, and it’s very overwhelming.”
The eldest daughter of Rico also believes why Rico never gets bashed with his vulgar jokes that he has cracked during his concerts, is because he has done it to connect with the people.
"Kaya siya tinawag na The Total Entertainer because he has made it into an art, na it’s all about timing." Tosca shared.
“So, alam niya kung bakit niya ginagawa yun, hindi to make fun or hindi mabastos, but it’s really just to connect with people," Tosca added.
She remembers the time when his dad taught him the essence of making jokes and making people happy.
“Sabi nga niya, ‘Alam mo, anak, you should know current events. When you make a joke, alam mo kung bakit mo ginagawa iyan.' Tosca recalled.
Tosca also realized what makes his fans love him that much.
“Ganun siya. Naiintindihan niya yung damdamin ng Pinoy, alam niya yung puso ng Pinoy. That’s why I believe he was very well-accepted, kasi alam niya kung sino yung tayo. So, pag nagku-concert, parang masaya-saya lang.” Tosca shared on her interview.
Tosca Camille thanked everyone who's been comforting them during these tough times and the ones who keep on supporting his dad even without his presence.
"So, sa inyo pong lahat, salamat po sa lahat ng tribute, sa pinapatugtog niyo yung music ni Papa nung nalaman niyo po," Tosca said.
“Sobra po kaming na-overwhelm sa ipinakita niyo pong pagmamahal kay Mr. Rico J. Puno. Thank you very much. And dahil po sa ipinakita niyong pagmamahal, kami po ay nai-encourage sa pamilya na si Daddy, di talaga siya nawala." Tosca thankfully said.
Tosca Camille Puno is the eldest among the eight children of Rico J. Puno.
