SM Development AVP and project director Jan Catherine Sy was set to get married three weeks before her death on March 18.
This was confirmed by her father, bilyonaryo Henry “Big Boy” Sy Jr., in a eulogy.
Big Boy revealed how his eldest daughter went out of her way to make sure he and his wife, Princess, stayed healthy and informed during the pandemic lockdown even while she was busy preparing for the most anticipated day in her life.
“She was joyful, kind and patient with us her parents and the most wonderful to be around especially in the past few months even as she prepared for her wedding to Jack,” said Big Boy.
A source said Jan had made her last fitting of her gown for her wedding on 9 April 2021.
Big Boy revealed that Jan kept her heart and faith till the end.
“By God’s grace and compassion, He allowed us to speak to Jan moments before she was intubated and she said she was ready to meet Jesus, giving a double thumbs up and then pointing to the sky saying ‘with Jesus’,” said Big Boy.
It was supposed to be the second wedding in the family after Jan’s sister, Jessica, got married in January 2020.
