MANILA – Following the recent passing of Elaine Gamboa-Cuneta, the family is asking for privacy from public as they mourn for their loss.
Elaine passed away at the age of 79 last November 5 due to internal bleeding and complications from abdominal surgery.
In a statement released by the family to The Philippine Star, Elaine was confined on September 2 wherein she spent more than seven weeks in the intensive care unit.
“We are deeply grateful for the outpouring of sympathy, love, prayer and support during our time of grief,” said the Cuneta family. “We want to thank all the doctors and nurses who did the best they could to care for Elaine these past few months.”
The Cuneta family admitted that the recent passing of their matriarch proved to be a very difficult time, especially for the Megastar Sharon Cuneta and her daughter KC Concepcion, thus they are hoping that they may “be allowed some privacy as they mourn for their loss.”
Meanwhile, they believe that their mother is already in a better place.
“We are comforted by our faith and we believe that she is in a good place, in the hands of her creator – no pain, no sickness or weakness, and seeing Jesus face-to-face,” they said.
The wake will be held at the Capilla Del Señor and CapillaDelaVirgen of Santuario de San Antonio Parish, McKinley Road, Makati City, starting from Nov. 6 to 11. Details of the interment will follow.
Elaine was the wife of the late Pasay City Mayor Pablo Cuneta.
