The 86th birthday of Patria Araneta Fuentes was celebrated with friends, relatives and loved ones in an intimate lunch at Bar 21 in Bacolod City recently.
Pat was married to the late Jose Maria Fuentes and they have three children: Marijo, Susan and Jose Marie Fuentes III. For 10 years Pat taught English and History at the University of Negros Occidental-Recoletos. A retiree now, she enjoys table swimming and dancing twice a week.
She said she misses her two grandchildren, who are now based in Canada. Her sister and brother-in-law from Manila, Nic and Lulu Fuentes Pagulayan, surprised her by coming over on her special day.
At 86, Pat is still good-looking and still hoping to dance the Argentine Tango!
Happy birthday and more blessings to you and your family!*
Remember: I believe in the sun even if it isn’t shining, I believe in love even when I am alone. I believe in God even when He is silent.*
