Many people’s hearts were broken by the news of Teejay Cruz’s death at the age of 37 due to lymphatic cancer.
But the person whose heart was probably broken than most is his mother, Lynn Ynchausti Cruz, the wife of Tirso Cruz III.
KAMI learned that Lynn took to social media to send a heartbreaking yet inspiring letter for his late son.
Tirso’s wife expressed how much she loves and how much she appreciates Teejay as a son and as a person.
“I remember you telling me, ‘di ako nahihiya Ma na tawaging Mama’s Boy, I am proud to be a Mama’s Boy!’
“Oh my dearest TJ, I am proud of you my dearest son! My first born son! You have a very good heart! A strong man! A warrior! The Lord blessed me with you! Pinahiram ka ni Lord sa akin for 37 years, and I thank God for that. I am blessed!
“You are now dancing in heaven for the Lord! You fought a good fight anak! I will miss you so much! I will miss our talks, yung tawanan natin, yung paghati natin sa food, yung pagdaan mo sa room namin ni Papa mo before you leave the house and pag-uwi mo, yung kumakanta tayong dalawa while you were in the hospital praising and worshiping God, our morning and evening prayer time...
“so many things na nami-miss ko about you...so many beautiful memories and I will cherish them for the rest of my life! You will always be in my heart! I love you my son! Mama loves you Mama’s Boy! I love you TJ,” the grieving mother wrote.
Just last month, Lynn greeted Teejay on his 37th birthday:
Teejay used to be a cast member of the Kapamilya show “Ang TV” and part of movies like “Rollerboys” and “Eskapo” before leaving behind showbiz.
After moving on from the entertainment industry, Teejay co-founded a fundraising volleyball tournament called “Spike for Hope” for children with severe illnesses.
