    Multi-awarded film director Marilou Diaz-Abaya passed away Monday evening after a long battle with breast cancer. She was 57.

    This was confirmed by Bishop Pablo Virgilio David, who performed final rites on Abaya at St. Luke’s Medical Center in The Fort Global City on Sunday afternoon.

    A report on GMA News' "24 Oras" said Abaya died around 6:40 p..m.

    David said he received the news from Abaya’s sister, Marissa Crisostomo, who texted him at around 7:15 Monday evening.

    David shared that as he performed the final blessing, Abaya was slipping in and out of consciousness.

    “She was having some seizures and unconscious na siya, but every few minutes she would become conscious for a few seconds and force a smile, mumble a prayer,” he told GMA News Online in a phone interview.

    Abaya had won numerous directing awards from award-giving bodies such as the Metro Manila Film Festival, the Urian Awards, the Film Academy of the Philippines, the FAMAS Awards, the Star Awards, the Catholic Mass Media Awards, the British Film Institute Award, the International Federation of Film Critics Award, and the Network of Pan Asian Cinema Award.

    Among Abaya's critically acclaimed movies was Jose Rizal (1998), which won numerous awards in that year's Metro Manila Film Festival, including Best Picture. She also directed other notable Filipino movies like Karnal (1983) and Muro-ami (1999).

    She was also founder and president of Marilou Diaz-Abaya Film Institute and Arts Center.— KBK, GMA News

    For actor Cesar Montano, the late director Marilou Diaz-Abaya was a sincere person whose love for others was so intense it was unforgettable.

    ?Hindi ko makakalimutan ?yun, sabi ko, grabe magmahal, kung ganito magmahal ang lahat ng tao, napakasaya ng buhay,? said Montano, who had worked with Abaya on three critically acclaimed films: Jose Rizal (1998), Muro-ami (1999) and Bagong Buwan (2001).

    Montano was referring to how Abaya consoled him when his son, Christian Angelo, died in 2010.

    ?Talagang inasikaso niya lahat... siya ?yung nagpapa-compose sa akin na... 'Easy ka lang, akong bahala rito.' Siya ?yung nagmamando sa akin, parang dinidirek pa rin niya ako,? Montano said in an interview on GMA News TV?s State of the Nation on Monday night.

    "Ang hindi ko makakalimutan sa kanya ?yung ugali niya, kung papaano siya magmahal, o kung papaano ?yung init ng kanyang pagmamahal at sinseridad as a person," Montano added.

    Abaya, a multi-awarded film and TV director, died Monday night after a long battle with breast cancer. She was 57.

    Love in all its forms

    In an interview with "Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho" aired last January, Abaya, who was by then already on medication due to cancer, said her greatest lesson in life was "love in all its forms."

    "You tend to take love for granted. We don't show it enough. And most of the time it's because we don't have time enough. What cancer has given me as I mentioned, first thing is time. It has given me time to think about my mortality and what my life is worth and what I can make it pa," she told the show's host, Jessica Soho.
