HEART Evangelista turned emotional when she bid goodbye to "second mother" Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago.
In her eulogy during the necrological service for Santiago at Immaculate Conception Cathedral in Cubao, Quezon City on Saturday afternoon, the actress remembered her "fairy godmother, protector, hero and best friend."
Evangelista said she is grateful to have known someone who made her feel that like she's the "child of the universe."
"You made me feel like the world was just waiting for me to spread my wings and make my dreams come true. You made me feel how special I was and I was indeed a child of the universe, as you would always say."
