Happy 8th Monthsary Hiro and Mitch

Happy 8th monthsary Hiro Mallari and Michelle Ann Bonzo — the teen couple whose love story is followed by netizens even after the girl's passing.

On Saturday, Hiro posted a heartwarming message for his one true love.

It reads:

Its our eight monthsary mahal. " i can't even imagine what my life would be without you. " now i'm dealing with it. I really do miss you a lot, and no words would ever express and explain how much I'm longing for your love and existence. I know i have to face it, i know i have to deal with it. Its easy to say yet the hardest thing to do. Being your boyfriend is the best part of my life, seeing you is the happiest and being with you is the perfect thing i always wanna do. Sorry for being weak at this very moment, for not letting you and for not accepting what happened. I want you to know that my love for you will always be here inside me. You're the best thing that ever happen to me. I MISS YOU SO MUCH, I MISS US MAHAL. Someday, you and I will meet again. And hopefully that day, i see you smiling at me and tell me you miss me. MAHAL NA MAHAL KITA :' ] i hope you love it mahal :' ] Michelle Ann

It's September 13, less than a month after Mitch died. She and six other tourism students perished in the so-called Bulacan State University field trip tragedy last August 19.

The couple's 8th monthsary coincides with the airing of the HiroMitch love story on Maalaala Mo Kaya (MMK) starring Manolo Pedrosa and Janella Salvador.
