“Tito Ed is one perfect example of professionalism as an actor and director!
“Kapag co-actor ka niya, napakalambing at kalog ni Tito Ed. Kapag director siya ibang-iba – seryoso at metikuloso.
“Alam ni Tito Ed dinaanan ng buhay ko. Sa lahat ng pagsubok at tagumpay! Dahil bata pa ako nakasama ko na siya sa pelikula as co-actor ang director! Hanggang huling hininga nasa pelikula siya.
“Nagsilbi ng napakahabang panahon para sa industriya at natanggap na ang lahat ng mahahalagang awards bilang artista at director, hindi lang sa bansa kungdi international awards.
“Para sa akin, ganyan dapat ang nabibigyan ng MOST PRESTIGIOUS RECOGNITION (National Artist). INSPIRATION NG LAHAT NG PUMAPASOK SA INDUSTRIYA. ‘Yan si Eddie Garcia!”
She also posted on social media about Eddie.
“I WILL MISS YOU TITO ED. Karangalan ko na makasama ka bilang isang Actor at Director. Maraming salamat sa lahat. I Love You Tito Ed...Our Condolences,” she wrote on Instagram.
