Rest easy, Lovee

Cris Albert was the most radiant person in a room. She was so charming and likeable we called her Lovee.

It’s been over a month since her untimely death, and I still can’t believe it.

Like most of her friends, I was shocked and devastated to learn about it. Cris was always so full of life — whether in her work as CEO of Fila Philippines, advocacies, parties and travels, as a wife and mother, or simply as an amazing human day in and out.

It was only right to remember her the way she lived.

To celebrate Cris’ life, her family and Fila held a tribute that paralleled the kind of person she was.

At the venue there were walls of flowers, live music, food and champagne, heartfelt anecdotes and messages and love all around.

Her children pledged to carry on their mom’s legacy.

Rest easy, Lovee. It was my pleasure to have partied with you. You are loved and missed.
