“Alam ko Medyo sumama ang loob mo sa akin noong paalis na at ng umalis ako ng Probinsyano. Kaya noong nagkita tayo sa reunion, Medyo kinabahan ako sa pagpasok sa kwarto mo para bumati. Nawala agad yung kaba ko noong ang bungad mo sakin ay “Benny!” na may ngiting abot tainga,” he wrote.
In a touching tribute, Pepe then revealed how Susan showed her love for all people around her, adding that he would forever remember her.
“Pinaramdam mo sa akin ang Pagmamahal at pagaaruga na walang halong salapi at walang hinahangad na kapalit. Dadalhin ko Hanggang pagtanda ang Pagmamahal na pinamana mo sa amin. Yakap kita ng mahigpit at Alam ko na Yakap mo din kami ng mahigpit,
“Masaya ako at Payapa ka na sa paglalakbay ngayon Papunta sa Kanya. Pinapangako ko sa iyo, hindi namin sasayangin ang binhi na naitanim mo. Tuwing mababanggit ang pangalang Benny, ikaw, at ang iyong mga Pamana ang una kong Maaalala. I Love You So Much Lola Flora,” Pepe said.
