One Filipino graduate by the name of Paulo John recently shared a photo on July 16th of himself and the ones he loved most.
With his entire family together – Paulo with his stepfather along with his two younger sisters, everyone was there to celebrate Paulo success – even Paulo’s mother.
But Paulo’s mother was actually a cut out photo of a woman scaling 5’2″.
The woman was Paulo’s late mother. After she promised Paulo she would attend his graduation ceremony, she soon passed away due to pneumonia in August of 2016.
A few years later, after receiving a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, Paulo posed with the life-size cutout of his mother.
On his twitter, Paulo Alinsog wrote a caption to go along with the photo:
“To my most beautiful mother! Ma, your eldest has graduated I hope you’re happy in the presence of God. I finished school because this is what you wanted. I love you very much.”
His post quickly went viral, Alinsog sharing: “I really didn’t expect this at all, I just wanna thank everyone and tell them they should always love and honor their parents.”
