The parents of Jastine Valdez have issued a statement this afternoon thanking the Irish people for their support and compassion in the recent days since Jastine's tragic death.
Teresita and Danillo Valdez also extended their thanks to the emergency services and the gardaí for acting with the "utmost professionalism".
They say their daughter had planned to buy a house and build a new life for herself here in Ireland in the coming years.
The heartfelt statement ended with the word Salamat, which means thank you in the families native Filipino language.
