Meet our parents

The photos below are our parents.

According to my parents, my father's family did not want mama as his wife because mama came from a very poor family and his family was a little bit well off. But my father fought for their love. Mama was very young when her and my father start living together, my father was 18 and my mother was 17. They had my late brother when Mama was 18 years old.

My father passed away two weeks before John and I's civil wedding (He was only 51 years old then). He was so excited for our wedding, he celebrated and drunk too much alcohol and died. I just wish that he is still alive but I am sure that wherever he is right now, he is happy with the presence of our Creator. I love you Papa.

The picture below was taken when they first got together.


These are John's parents. His Mom died a year before I finally migrated to the mighty US of A. But I was able to communicate with her through letters and phone call. When I arrived at John's neighborhood, the neighbors already knew me because his Mom showed my picture to everyone. John's Dad is a veteran of WW2 and I am so blessed to have a very kind and loving in-laws in a foreign land. I never had any issues with them, they are all nice to me.

The photo below was taken at the back porch of Dad's house with my mother-in-laws sister Romaine and her husband.(John's parents are the ones in red and gray tops).This photo was taken during John's first visit (March 2003), Papa was still alive then. In this picture, my brother Nick was still a kid so when I came home for the first time I was shocked that he is already a man lol..Thanks guys for dropping by and welcome to our lives!

i read your all your stories at na-touch ako especially here.. sigh.. im sure you do miss your brother. i have one brother too and na-sad ako when we lost out parents many years ago, una ko naisip ang brother ko since he is the youngest and we took the resposibility of being the parents for him.
