Fil-Am Actor NICO SANTOS' Stepfather Dies From COVID-19
Fil-Am actor Nico Santos announced that his stepfather Sonny has succumbed to COVID-19.
Nico, best known for his roles in Crazy Rich Asians and the comedy series Superstore, shared the sad news in an Instagram post. "My Tito Sonny passed away yesterday after losing his battle with COVID-19. He was a kind, caring man. Friendly to a fault. He always greeted strangers walking past him with a chipper ‘Good Morning!’ and a big smile. He had a great laugh that filled the room with joy," he wrote.
Unfortunately, the family couldn't mourn together as his mother Tita is also fighting the disease. "The loss of my stepfather is devastating but what has gutted me is that this pandemic has kept my family apart. We were unable to be with him during his last days. I can’t hold my mother as she mourns her husband. I can’t hug my brother as he contemplates a world without his father. I can’t wipe away the tears from my nephews’ eyes as they wonder why their Lolo Sonny isn’t here anymore."
Nico went on to thank everyone for their prayers, love and assistance to his family. "Please continue to pray and send healing energy to my mom. I hope all of you are staying safe and healthy. Rest In Peace Tito Sonny. I love you."
