CHERIE GIL, HININTAY LANG DUMALAW SI SHARON BAGO PUMANAW
ni Rohn Romulo - @Run Wild | August 7, 2022
Durog na durog ang puso't kaluluwa ni Megastar Sharon Cuneta sa pagpanaw ng isa sa dearest friends niya sa showbiz na si Cherie Gil noong August 5, na matagal na palang lumalaban sa kanyang iniindang karamdaman.
Isang araw lang ito after um-attend ni Sharon sa premiere night ng Easter Sunday na pinagbibidahan ng Fil-Am comedian na si Jokoy, kung saan kasama dapat siya sa cast, pero 'di natuloy dahil sa nag-false positive siya sa COVID-19 kaya pinalitan siya ni Tia Carrere, na na-meet din niya sa event.
Sa IG post ni Sharon, kasama ang photo na kuha sa ospital, hawak ang kamay ni Cherie at labis ang kanyang pagtangis.
Panimula ng mahabang caption ni Mega, "I flew to New York early yesterday with a heavy heart, still forcing it to hang on to that sliver of hope of God performing a miracle & allowing you to pull through this. I am eternally grateful to Him for giving us the few hours we spent together…
the love & words yet again exchanged in person… the knowledge that the friendship forged when we were very young was stronger & would only keep getting so…
"You told me about your tree to heaven outside of your apartment window which I didn’t get to see. We said “I love you” & I said I’d see you again today…& you raised both arms and gave me the thumbs up with both hands."
Pagpapatuloy pa ng kuwento niya, "Then barely eleven hours after I left you, I was awakened by his call saying you had passed… I leave New York now with a much heavier heart than ever before… because now I am leaving YOU with the knowledge that I will NEVER see you again…
"I cannot process it. It seems so unfair. It will never be the same without you. I will never be the same without you. I told you that you had to fight, please, because you couldn’t leave me & that you were my partner, that there is no one like you…You said yes.
"But God took you home, took all your pain away. I will never get to feed you ice chips again.
Or share most everything else with you. Your kids are strong & love you so much. Mike & I won’t have to keep our talks about you a secret anymore like we did while taping our show.
But I don’t know how we would want to.
"I thank God I was with your Dad & Mom & R & all your kids to ‘see you off’ - but I am not happy. My heart is in pieces again & now I dunno how to put it back together anymore-because among the many loved ones I have lost these past few years, you were & always will be one of my most loved…a most important part of my life & my history.
"Of my heart. I love you so very much. It is the end of an era now that you’ve left us… What will I do without you now, Love?
"My true screen partner, a true friend, ninang of Simone…I miss you so terribly & know it will only get worse. Be at peace in God’s loving arms, my Cheech…I’ll see you again someday. I will love you with all my heart, forever. Thank you for everything."
Dumagsa ang pakikidalamhati at pakikiramay sa post ni Sharon at ilan nga sa mga naging comments ng mga netizens….
"Hinintay ka lang niya talaga, this is so painful, my heart is broken for you. Stay strong Mega…."
"Our hearts are in shattered pieces though the demise of our Ms. Cherie. We have lost of the best stars in our industry. But I know Ms. Cherie will be one of the stars we look upon the sky tonight.
Even though we may not see Ms. Cherie anymore, we will see her in our dreams and thoughts.
May God give you Ms. @reallysharoncuneta and the Gil-De Mesa Family the strength and peace with this terrible loss. All of us saddened by the loss of Cherie. But we know Ms. Cherie is now an angel looking down upon us and will protect us from danger."
"Always and forever the Philippines most iconic duo..rest in peace Ms Cherie."
Unang nagkasama sa pelikula sina Sharon at Cherie sa Sa Hirap at Ginhawa at nagkasunud-sunod na sa mga hit movies. Ang iconic nilang pagtatapat sa Bituing Walang Ningning, Kailan Sasabihing Mahal Kita?, Sana'y Wala Nang Wakas kasama si Dina Bonnevie, Kahit Wala Ka Na, Bakit Ikaw Pa Rin? at Ngayon at Kailanman. May special appearance rin si Cherie sa Jack & Jill nina Sharon at Herbert Bautista.
Our sincere and heartfelt condolences sa family ni Ms. Cherie at mahigpit na yakap sa 'yo, Megastar.
