I already made a post, Meet my Father, about my loving father 2 years ago. My father is well respected and loved by all his siblings, relatives and in our community.
Papa, is the oldest of 8 children, born and raised from Bicol. When he was a teenager he tried his luck in Manila, got a job as a boy in a small grocery store owned by Chinese couple. The store became one of the big canned food manufacturing company where my father worked for more than 45 years until his retirement day. He was the number one employee and treated as a son of the Chinese couple.
He is the best husband to my mother and a good father to his children whose simple dream was to send all of his 7 children to college and be somebody someday. All his life, he did nothing but work hard for his family. Me and my siblings never saw him fight with our mother. He is a kind hearted man who never thinks nor says bad words against other people.
