Andi Eigenmann Bids Farewell To Mom Jaclyn Jose Through Touching Instagram Letter

Andi writes: “Nasa paraiso ka na, Nanay”

Andi Eigenmann, daughter of the late Jaclyn Jose, has written a poetic farewell message for the veteran actress in commemoration of her well-lived life as a mother. 

Andi’s poem was a visual and lyrical composition, which she published on Instagram on Tuesday, March 13, 2024.

She writes (published as is), “Higit pa sa sapat ang itinira mong pagmamahal para kami ay hindi mangulila. Habang buhay kong dadalhin ang iyong mga ala-ala. 

“Maraming salamat sa iyong gabay, Nay. Sa kahit saang parte ng aking buhay parati kitang madarama. Parati kitang makikita. 

“Ika’y nasa araw, sa ulan, at sa hanging aking nilalasap. Umaawit ng kantang puno ng pag-asa at ligaya.

“Wala na ang sakit. Wala na ang takot. Matatanaw pa rin kita sa mga ulap, at maririnig ang mga bulong ng iyong pagmamahal. Magkikita din tayong muli. Sa ngayon diringgin ko muna ang iyong mga awit.

“Nasa paraiso ka na, Nanay. Pahinga ka na. [white heart emoji]” 

The post comes with a series of photos, including shots of butterflies, sunflower bouquets, and Jaclyn’s portrait during her wake. 

Prior to this, Andi has also commemorated the life of her mother through a press conference on march 4, 2024. At that time, Andi says that her mother’s life had been her greatest “obra maestra.” 

Andi is Jaclyn’s daughter with the late actor Mark Gil.

Her message reads (published as is), “Any which way… take care of my daughter and to my apo’s.. alam mo? Mahal kita Philmar you are the father of my apo’s maramaing salamat.”
