Lani Mercado’s Mother Dies at 87 on Mother’s Day

Lani Mercado’s mother, Justa Garcia Hernandez, passed away early Sunday morning on Mother’s

Mercado said her mom died at 3 a.m. today at the age of 87.

The family was expecting to celebrate Mother’s Day today but her mother wished to celebrate it with the Lord, Lani said.

Her mother was rushed to the hospital last Thursday after she threw up and experienced dizziness several times.

Later, the doctors told them that she is already ‘brain dead’ because she has cerebral hemorrhage, caused by several strokes in the past.

She had lived a long life and they are blessed to have her for 87 years. Mercado s now relieved that her mom is now with God.

Mercado’s family will be holding the wake for her mother for three days at the Heritage Memorial Park in Taguig.
