Heart Evangelista reminisces days with the late Miriam Defensor-Santiago on her Instagram stories

It’s been nearly two years since Miriam Defensor Santiago succumbed to lung cancer.

To actress Heart Evangelista, the late senator and former presidential candidate holds a special place in her heart. In her recent Instagram stories, she shared photos of them together, including a letter Santiago wrote for her.

A vital reason why Santiago is important to Evangelista is that she wouldn’t have met her husband, Sen. Chiz Escudero, if not for her.

She ends her last Story with a caption, “oh how I miss you”.

According to Inquirer.net, Evangelista would often express in past interviews that she sought Santiago as “her second mother”. How touching!
