Sharon Cuneta continues to mourn the loss of her good friend, actress Cherie Gil

On IG, Sharon posted a framed photograph of them together, adorned with several strands of sampaguita. In a lengthy post, she noted that it was Cherie's last present for her when they had dinner together. 

"She handed it to me beautifully gift-wrapped," Sharon recalled. "And when I opened it, we hugged. That was Cherie. As mataray as she was in her movies, she was as sweet in real life. Our joke was mas mataray nga ako sa kanya 'di nyo lang alam."

Sharon also recalled the moment in November 2021 when she found out through Cherie's brother, Michael de Mesa, that Cherie was sick. On that day, she was on ASAP being officially welcomed to the cast of FPJ's Ang Probinsyano.

"Backstage, when Mike whispered to me that Cherie wanted me to know, I couldn’t help hitting him on the shoulder and crying," Sharon remembered.

"Now all I can do is like Dorina, I put fresh strands of sampaguita on her (our) picture every day…"

In two other posts, Sharon sends out a message to Cherie and shares a postcard she received from Cherie back in 1999.

"I’ve always looked up to you and idolized you since you were President of our Glee Club in St. Paul Pasig when you were in 7th grade and I was in 5th. Funny how God brought us together to be partners with the best 'magkaaway' chemistry ever on screen. You will always be my partner, no matter how brilliant my coming co-stars shall be… Please look after me, love."
