Markang-marka iyon sa alaala at isipan ng isang batang manunulat pa lamang noon sa mundo ng showbiz. Na halos kasabayan niya kasi ang aktres na si Ms. Cherry Pie Picache sa pagpasok sa magulong mundo noon ng showbiz. Isa iyon sa mga una niyang ‘enkuwentro” sa mga exclusive interviews na inilalaan ng mga movie production companies, tulad ng Viva Entertainment Productions.

Batang-bata pa noon si Cherry Pie, a fresh new discovery ng Viva Films na nagmula sa mundo ng commercial modelling. I-introduce nuon si Cherry Pie sa kanyang first movie sa Viva, at mapalad namang ang isang batang manunulat na iyon ang nakapag-panayam nu’n kay Cherry Pie. Ang pangalan ng batang manunulat: Robert Silverio.

At sa panayaman na naganap na iyon many years ago, isang bagay lamang ang inuulit-ulit ni Cherry Pie. ANG PAGMAMAHAL NIYA SA KANYANG INANG SI MRS. ZENAIDA VIDOR SISON. 

Marahil, nakalimutan na ni Cherry Pie ang panayaman na iyon sa tinagal-tagal ng panahon na lumipas. Pero para sa batang manunulat na iyon na halos kasing-edad lamang niya din nuon, HINDI MALIMOT-LIMOT NG ISANG BATANG MANUNULAT ANG MGA KATAGANG NASAMBIT NI CHERRY PIE UKOL SA PAGMAMAHAL NIYA SA KANYANG INA. Nagmarka iyon sa kanyang alaala, magpasa-hanggang-ngayon.

“I have the greatest mom in the whole wide world”, nasambit pa iyon ni Cherry Pie.

Pero nung Lunes, Setyembre 23, 2014, isang malamlam na Cherry Pie ay aming nakita. malungkot ang mga mata. Nagluluksa sa pagyao ng kanyang PINAKAMAMAHAL NA INA.

Isang mariing paghawak sa aking kanang kamay ang sinalubong sa amin ni Cherry Pie. Sa mariing hawak na iyon ng kanyang mga palad, naramdaman namin ang kanyang pasasalamat sa aming pakikiramay at sinseridad. Maski kay dami-dami niyang inaasikaso nung huling araw na iyon sa burol ng kanyang ina, nagawa pa rin niyang isa-isang akapin, kausapin at harapin ang mga naging bisita at nakiramay. Kaya very warm talaga ang mararamdaman mong pag-welcome niya sa ‘yo.

Sa gitna ng mga luha, habang kausap niya ang beteranong aktor na si Ronaldo Valdez at maybahay nito, narito ang ilang mga naging kataga ni Cherry Pie ukol sa kanyang ina: “She was a very strong 75-year old woman”, anya. “At 75, she still drives her own car and do tasks. She was very independent. Ilang beses ko na siyang inaaya na sumama na lang sa akin. But she kept on saying: There can not be two queens in one house. Ayaw niya. Gusto niya talaga, du’n sa house niya na naipundar niya sa Dr. Lascano Street in Quezon City.”

Ang isang ate ni Cherry Pie na si Pinky (who’s based in the U.S.) ay very warm ding lumapit sa mga bisita. Npaka-accomodating niya. maski naiiyak na siya, she still managed to smile sa mga guests na nakiramay. Si Ms. Pinky rin ang lumapit sa blogger na ito nu’ng papaalis na dahil abalang-abala na sa mga oras na iyon si Cherry Pie.

Habang tinititigan namin ang mga video still photos ni Mrs. Zenaida Picache, halos mapaiyak din kami. Sa mga litrato pa lamang, mararamdaman mo nang isa siyang mapagmahal na grandmother, mother and human being. She’s so beautiful, too. At kamukhang-kamukha siya ng ‘blood grandmother’ ng blogger na tumitingin sa mga video still photos sa loob ng Arlington Memorial Chapels.

Ilan sa mga celebrities na naro’n din nung hapon na iyon sa last day of wake ni Mrs. Picache, bukod kay Mr. Ronaldo Valdez at kanyang maybahay ay sina Jake Tordesillas (scriptwriter), veteran actress Luz Valdez, writer Armand Reyes, manager Martin martin of The Elites Model Management, Gorgy Rula of GMA-7, at marami pang iba.

Sa landasin ng buhay, sadyang may mga bagay na natatapos at nawawala. Sa paglisan ng ina ni Cherry Pie Picache, dala ng lahat ang isang matamis at malungkot na ngiti.

It was a life well-lived, from a woman who was ahead of her time.

Our deepest condolences to the family of Cherry Pie Picache.

Cherry Pie Picache to cops: No need to rush probe; do it right

MANILA, Philippines—On the day her slain mother was cremated, actress Cherry Pie Picache said her grieving family was counting on the Quezon City police to “conduct a more thorough investigation to make sure that the right people will be put to jail.”

“We’re not in a hurry to find out who the perpetrators are. We want the police to be able to identify them correctly,” she said of the still unidentified assailants who stabbed 75-year-old Zenaida Sison dead at her Quezon City home Friday last week in what the police later ruled as a robbery.

Sison was cremated Wednesday afternoon.

The 44-year-old actress said her family had their own suspects in the gruesome crime. “We (and the police) update each other… We are discussing and putting together all the information that we’ve gathered. We want to help in any way we can to ensure that the right people are arrested.”

Picache confirmed reports that a female psychic had approached her claiming to have communicated with her mother shortly after the crime and “seen” her killers’ faces in a dream.

“I really didn’t know (the psychic) personally. She was the one who reached out to me. She was hesitant at first because she didn’t know how I would react,” Picache told the Inquirer. “I told her that the family was open to any information that could help solve the case.”

Five days after the killing, Quezon City Police District (QCPD) director Chief Supt. Richard Albano appealed for patience on the part of the Picache family. “This will surely be solved, but if we rush and set a deadline, we might veer off the right track. We just want to be certain,” Albano said. With a report from Jaymee Gamil
