In a viral tweet, Paulo Alinsog shared a photo of himself and a life-size cutout of his late mother with the caption, “To my most beautiful mother! Ma, your eldest has graduated I hope you’re happy in the presence of God. I finished school because this is what you wanted. I love you very much.”

Alinsog shared to Coconuts Manila that he had the standee made because it was his dream to graduate with his mother, Carmen, by his side. Carmen passed away in August 2016 due to complications from pneumonia.

“I ordered the standee two weeks ago because I’ve always wanted her to accompany me on my graduation day. When the standee was delivered to me, I cried because I thought it was real. I thought it was beautiful and creepy at the same time,” he said. “I had that standee made so that I could at least feel my mom’s presence on graduation day because my graduation from college was our dream.”
