According to Bianca, “I’ve been staring at the design of my friend @beabianca.ph Bea Bianca Mackey drew based on the description i imagined you to wear for the last time… Simple, classy… like a beautiful angel… ikaw na ikaw.”
She continued, “Dati wala kang reklamo kahit ginagawa kitang human barbie doll kaka fit ng mga dress ko magka size pa tayo nuon eh — Small kaya nasad ka nung shooting ng Halik ng Sirena kasi Medium na size ko at puro duster ang wardrobe ko bilang mermaid ang role natin. At ngayon XL na ako kelan lang pinapagalitan mo ako gusto mo ako painumin ng healthy juice at mag badminton. Don’t worry i have been trying to get fit for the past 2 months talaga and Large na lang ako ngayon.”
She described Isabel’s beautiful burial gown saying, “When you arrive, you will wear this Ethereal gown, created with fine French lace and flowy Gaze Faconne fabric, accentuated w/heavy embroidery lace & white Topaz Swarovski crystals you will look just like sleeping beauty ❤.”
Bianca concluded, “I will forever treasure the genuine friendship you gave sis, my kumare…Isabel Granada, pasensya na sa times na di mo ako mahagilap at pagkukulang ko. i love you!”
