MANILA, Philippines -- Singer Charice on Thursday posted messages of love to her family, including her dad who passed away last year.

"I love you Mommy! Carl! I love you both! Daddy, I love you kung nasan ka man," Charice said on her official Twitter account.

Charice's father Ricky Pempengco, who is separated from her mom, was stabbed in A. Bonifacio Road, Barangay Laram, San Pedro, Laguna on October 31 last year.

A police report said Pempengco was in a drinking session and then left to buy a cigarette. That was when Angel Capili Jr. approached him and stabbed him with an ice pick.

Pempengco was able to walk away and then sat on the pavement, but the suspect went back for him and stabbed him again.

The 12-inch ice pick pierced through Pempengco's body and killed him. The suspect quickly left the scene.

Capili surrendered to police a few days later on November 3.
