It’s no secret that actress Heart Evangelista and the late Miriam Defensor Santiago shared a unique friendship. The two were super close that Heart considered Miriam her second mother and mentor.

Heart continued, “You owe me an Adulting 101, Tita. But it’s okay because I remember every single lesson you’ve taught me until today. Of course, because you were my ultimate mentor and source of guidance.”

Heart and Miriam’s friendship began unexpectedly, following a chance meeting. It was also Miriam who introduced Heart to her husband, Chiz Escudero.

Miriam peacefully passed away in her sleep in September 2016 following a two-year battle with lung cancer.
