During Judy Ann Santos' birthday celebration last night, May 10 some of her closest friends and family shared their greetings and wishes for the Queen of Pinoy Soap Operas.
Sarah Geronimo also relayed her message to her Ate Juday. In a video shared by multi-hyphenate Noel Ferrer, Sarah reminisced the very first time that she met Judy Ann.
"I remember the very first time...actually may picture po kami ni Ate Judy Ann nung maliit po ako eh."
She was talking about this photo who has previously circulated online. According to Judy Ann it was taken at "That's Entertainment."
Sarah continued, "Nasa showbiz na po ako nun. Birthday po yata ng pamangkin ni Ms. Beth tapos nasa inflatable kami.
"Tapos she held my hand. Para akong natunaw. Kasi Judy Ann Santos..parang taong-tao ba."
The 29-year old singer continued with praises for her Ate.
"Di ko ine-expect na wala siyang kayabang-yabang sa katawan, walang kaere-ere. Parang ka-level ko lang, ganyan. Sobra akong na-inspire kay Ate.
"All the more noong nagkaroon kami ng chance to work together. Sobra siyang naging totoong ate sa'kin, sila ni Miss Sharon.
"Forever ko 'yun tatanawing utang na loob 'yung ginawa nila for me na pagsuporta.
"And until now si Ate, grabe lang 'yung pagamahal mo. Sana one day masuklian ko, kasi alam kong di ko pa 'yun nasusuklian ngayon. I love you ate, mahal na mahal ka namin at happy happy birthday."
