Kumusta fromBataan, inthe Philippines!
When we heard about you, we thought it was impossible, instead you made it great!
The Ocampos family is very united in the heart but apart so far physically. For our Saints’ Day, when our families unite at cemeteries honoring our loved ones with prayers for an easy transition, we wanted to bring a tribute to the founders of our family with something special: a message from everyone, no matter how far. We are 66 in all!
You Zoomed, texted, collected tributes, stories, photos, wishes. You defeated all the time zones and never missed an appointment. Now our stories are in a book you compiled for us: I am holding it in my hands. It is so beautiful…
Because of Covid, celebrations last November were cancelled. Now, each time I go to the cemetery I take our book, and this way bring all the family along. I read Mama and Papa a message from one of us, no matter how distant they are. We have never been closer. It means so much to us.
All the Ocampos agree: we want to include you in our family of 66 + 2.
God bless you and thank you. Remember you have a home anywhere where the Ocampos family are.
