Roughly 2 decades since his unfortunate and shocking death, the name Rico Yan still remains iconic. In fact, he is still considered one of the most sought-after matinee idols in the Philippines.
Aside from his looks, Yan was idolized by many back then because of his great talent in acting and also many cannot help but feel the amazing chemistry he had with his then-girlfriend, Claudine Barretto.
So, it is no longer a surprise that many netizens just can’t help but fall in love with Yan all over again when a photo of his last handwritten love letter to Barretto surfaced online.
The said letter was just written on a small sheet of ordinary yellow pad paper that is even a little crumpled. But the words on it are just too sweet to be ignored.
Yan wrote: “To my hunny, By the time you read this, I must be in CDO already. Just want to thank you for last night. You were wonderful! And because of that, I’m sure I’m gonna have a hard time sleeping without you by my side tonight. But nevertheless, I still love you very much! MWAH!!-Rico.”
Yan is without a doubt, a romantic and such a sweet guy. Too sad though, he only lived a short life and was not able to do more things for his loved ones.
Nonetheless, wherever he may be now, Yan knows that there are still thousands of people down here who still love him and will forever remain as his fans.
