MANILA - "I'm going home now!" These were the words left by the late Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago to her grandchildren during an undated visit.

In videos uploaded on Facebook by Mechel Santiago, the late senator's daughter-in-law, a visibly frail Santiago mustered all her strength to play and interact with her grandchildren.

Mechel revealed that of her five children, only two know that Santiago has passed away. According to her, the rest thought the senator was still in the hospital.

"It's hard to hear them every night praying for you to get well and come home soon," Mechel shared on Facebook.
