Kitkat heartbroken over death of grandmother

/ 02:44 PM August 12, 2019

Comedienne-singer Kitkat is mourning the death of her grandmother Purificacion B. Lopez, whom she lovingly calls “nanay” (mother).

According to Kitkat, she was on her way to the hospital when she found out that her grandmother is already in the morgue, as per her Instagram post on Saturday, Aug. 10. Kitkat did not state the cause of her grandmother’s death.


Ganito pala ang feeling ng mamatayan ng mahal na mahal sa buhay! Dati palagi ko iniisip di ako ready talaga pag nawala ang lola nanay ko,” Kitkat said. “Papunta palang ako sa ospital akala ko maaabutan kita, ngayon sa morgue mo na ako hinihintay.”

(So this is how it feels when a loved one dies. I used to always think that I will never be ready when my lola nanay passes away. I was still on my way to the hospital. I thought I would still reach you. Now you are waiting for me at the morgue.)

“Mahal na mahal kita nanay, di ko alam kung kakayanin ko pag nakita na kita. Isang oras pa byahe ko, sana hindi pa din totoo,” she added.

(I love you so much, nanay. I do not know if I can bear seeing you. I still have one hour before I get there, I still hope this is not true.)


Kitkat expressed her love for her grandmother in a separate post via Instagram yesterday, Aug. 11. Kitkat posted a photo of her embracing her grandmother.

Mahal na mahal kita Nanay! Di ko ata kaya! Di ko napaghandaan to! Kahit sinasabi nila na 91 ka na at mag ready na din ako,,, Di ko talaga kaya kasi di ba usapan natin hanggang 100 yrs old ka?… Nanay! Di ko kaya! Hirap na hirap ako tanggapin ngayon … Nanay, marami ka pang gusto na jacket ko di ba? Pano mo masusuot to sabay sabay? Nay, gising ka naman! Sana nananaginip lang ako… . Sa buong buhay ko eto ang pinaka kinakatakutan ko… ako pa din yung batang inaalagaan at karay karay mo sa bus na binabayaran mo ang buong upuan wag lang ako magsungit pag may katabi… Di ko alam kung hanggang saan ko kakayanin at totoong wala kana… . . 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 R.I.P Purificacion B. Lopez “ateng” or “puring”
