Angeline Quinto misses ‘Mama Bob’ on first Christmas without her
Christmas was different for singer-actress Angeline Quinto this year, as it is the first time she celebrated it without her adoptive mother she fondly refers to as Mama Bob.
Quinto remembered Mama Bob, whose real name is Sylvia Quinto, on Christmas Day, showing a photo of the two of them on Instagram during better days.
“Ito ang unang pasko na wala ka Ma. Ibang iba ang pakiramdam pero sa 30 years ng buhay ko na kasama kita walang patlang ang pag mamahal na pinaramdam mo sa akin,” said Quinto.
(This is my first Christmas without you, Ma. It feels so different, but in the 30 years I’ve spent with you, you have shown me nothing but constant love.)
Quinto also said there is nothing more she would thank the Lord for other than allowing her and Mama Bob to cross paths when she was just a baby.
“Ikaw ang buhay at mundo ko Mama Bob,” said Quinto. “Maligayang Pasko Ma dyan sa langit.” (You are my life and world, Mama Bob. Merry Christmas in heaven.)
In the end, the singer urged her friends, colleagues and relatives to hug their mothers tight.
“Lagi niyong ipaalala sa kanila na mahal na mahal niyo sila,” she said. (Always remind them how much you love them.)

In September, Quinto asked for prayers for Mama Bob. Although she did not disclose her mom’s ailment then, Quinto said she was going through the greatest challenge of her life. JB
