I spent some time talking with Dad and he would like to share the story of how he met his beautiful wife Zeny in his own words.
I was working at Philippine Columbian in 1966 at went to work at a restaurant that Zeny was working at and as soon as I saw her I knew she was the one. I feel in LOVE with her. right away and I think she liked me too. Then our LOVE started and we married soon after in 1967. We had 8 beautiful children together 4 boys and 4 girls. So, 1966 was a great year!
Dad said to me "I loved her every day until our love ended on August 10th 2107.
I told dad "no Papa". Your LOVE for each other has not ended and will always be as strong as ever. She has started her next journey but will always still be there with you forever. You see Papa, LOVE is never ending.
Zeny had 2 special songs that she always loved to sing Anne Murray "YOU NEEDED ME" and "I WANT MORE LIFE"
Zeny lived her life to the fullest and loved everyone she met.
She will be remembered mostly for her laugh, always singing!
Zeny was a Catholic and is already on her next journey and is waiting to greet the rest of her family and friends in Heaven.
