February 12, 2011

Yesterday, D & I along with my parents were at the Our Lady of Loreto Church in Bustillos in the Sampaloc district of Manila for the interment of my father in law, Manuel G. Franco. Papa died October 12, 2009 but it was only yesterday February 12, 2011 that his urn was buried in a crypt. D's older half sister, Ate Bey brought him 'home' from Seattle where Papa lived most of this life.

A poignant mass at 11 am was attended by family, relatives and close friends. Then his remains were buried at the Ascension chapels. The crypt also contains the remains of Papa's first wife and his oldest son, Kuya Danny. Lunch followed at Gerry's Grill in SM Manila. Pleasant conversations about Papa and everything else in between abounded. The gathering was a mini reunion of relatives and friends of the family.

Rest in peace, Papa Wel.
