In her own words, she paid tribute to Sharon's love, strength, and resilience, and expressed gratitude for everything she's done for her and her siblings.
"Of all the things you've taught me, it is from you that I learned how to love and how to allow myself to feel everything through the heart," Frankie wrote. "This genuine desire to love wholly, truthfully, and generously is what fuels my every breath. It's what keeps me alive!"ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW

"Your resilience and your constant brilliance leave me beyond awestruck every time," Frankie said. "You deserve every ounce, every sliver of pure happiness, joy, and security that this world can muster—because God knows you have been exactly that to more people than I could ever name."
Frankie then expressed how grateful she is to have Sharon as her mom. "Thank you for encouraging me to be my own person. Thank you for always, always having my back," she said, professing her love and faith in her mom.

Meanwhile, Sharon's other children—adopted son Miguel, youngest daughter Miel, and firstborn KC Concepcion, who's back from France—also gave her simple gifts and letters.

KC gave her mom her favorite liquid soaps from France, and a label maker, which Sharon was so excited to receive.
