In a Facebook post, the comedian's mother expressed how proud she is of her son.
"Magandang alaala ang iniwan mo anak lalo na sa mga Covid Victim na pinasaya mo inawitan mo," Argente wrote. "Sabi mo bumilis ang kanilang paggaling kasi nawawala ang kanilang lungkot hindi mo lang alam ang takot ni mama pero dahil gusto mo nga mag work bilang Frontliner pumayag na si mama."
"Sobrang saya mo ng ibalita mo sakin na kahit nakasalamuha mo sila negative result mo," she told. "Sobrang Proud ako sayo anak maraming sumasaludo sayo, para sa akin anak isa kang bayani."
Days after he was hospitalized, Kim Idol died due to his condition, arteriovenous malformation or an abnormal tangle of blood vessels connecting arteries and veins, which disrupts normal blood flow and oxygen circulation. He was 41.
