The family of the late Manuel Ledesma Poblador Sr. commemorated his birthday on October 19 with a thanksgiving mass in Talisay City, Negros Occidental.
Present were the five children of Manuel and Sonia Lizares Poblador: Mario, Jun Jun, Mike, Martin and Maricris, who are all doing well in their chosen careers. The event was also attended by high school classmates from La Consolacion College-Bacolod, cousins and relatives from the Marañon, Jesena, Hontiveros and Ledesma clans.
Lunch was served buffet-style, with many delectable dishes to choose from, and a delicious birthday cake for Manuel. Sonia and the kids were still enjoying their coffee and cakes when I bade them adieu at around 2:30 that afternoon.*
Remember: We believe in the sun even if it is not shining. We believe in love even when we are alone. I believe in God even when He is silent.*
