LOOK: Gretchen Ho pays tribute to young fan who passed away
Volleyball player and television host Gretchen Ho on Tuesday paid tribute to a young fan who passed away.
Ho shared a photo with the fan via Instagram with the caption: “In memory of Phia Tolentino. You were full of energy & a bundle of joy and kindness for your friends.”
Ho expressed how sad it was that no one noticed the pain Tolentino felt inside.
With the fan’s passing, Ho wrote “Let your Life be a reminder for all of us to look closer, delve deeper & be kinder to the people around us — left and right.”
“Depression is real. It’s been gripping many. Let’s be there for each other. Reach out. Listen. Ask. Encourage. Help,” she added.
The volleyball player recounted the time when she met Tolentino during her volleyball games and thanked the fan for cheering her up.
“Salamat, Phia, for cheering for me up there in the stands & giving time to watch our games. We’ve met only 3-4 times, but will always remember you. We will miss you, and will pray for you,” Ho said. /muf
